38 minutes

Leigh Richardson is the Founder and Clinical Director of The Brain Performance Center in Dallas, Texas, where she utilizes her MBA, MS, Counseling, and board certifications to offer state of the art solutions for “brain problems”. She’s also an international speaker and the author of Turn Your Brain On to Get Your Game On.

Leigh has studied human behavior for over 30 years, initially focused on organizational behavior and then shifting to human behavior after one of her sons suffered a traumatic brain injury. Whether it’s anxiety, ADHD, depression, insomnia, or brain injury, Leigh’s understanding of the brain and the different methodologies that can be used to organically change the brain is spectacular. She truly is creating great social change around mental health.

In this episode, Leigh discusses the role of stress and mental health in the workplace and the business community, along with what leaders can do to improve and support the mental health of their employees.

Richardson sheds light on what leaders, and business owners, should be learning about the impacts of mental illness and how to talk to your employees about mental health. She gives insight into her best practices for prioritizing mental health in your organization, the power of creating a sense of community and “soul care” in the workplace, and the importance of preventative mental healthcare. Plus, she breaks down the concept of neural feedback and what it teaches us about the brain.
