How Power Impacts Your Heart

In 2014, Root’s Jim Haudan gave a TEDx talk – “Why Does Authenticity Matter?” – on the topic of power and how it can affect our heart and our emotional capabilities. Jim reminds us that leaders must remember the importance of maintaining authenticity and vulnerability because when “power goes to your head, it may shut down your heart.” He tells us “power to our head actually changes the way our brain works … it alters the way we think and behave and it makes it very difficult for us to feel and understand what other people feel and understand.” Learn more on this topic and hear Jim’s point of view.
