Sonia McDonald wants you to know, so you can start Rocking It! What is RAS?
More on that soon…
The team at The EA Initiative were thrilled to put on a special event with key note speaker and leadership expert Sonia McDonald at Flight Centre HQ last Thursday evening.
The wine was flowing and with a great view of the sunset over Mt Cootha, the attendees networked before being introduced to Sonia by our sponsors, Verity Consulting. Managing Director, Andre van der Merwe, had prepared a getting-to-know you- quiz – 50 questions in 2 minutes– so we all got to learn a lot of fun facts about Sonia and her journey to becoming one of Australia’s most well-known thought leaders.
Sonia is one gutsy woman, her story of humble beginnings that led her to self- motivated success was very inspiring. She introduced us to the concept of confidence and leadership in our roles (even if we don’t have Manager in our titles) and she managed to engage a fairly chatty crowd!
Now- to RAS. Part of Sonia’s specialty is linking neuroscience to leadership concepts and she highlighted the importance of the RAS – ‘Reticular activating system’.
