April 2021 ATDBR Virtual Member Meeting

The Neuroscience of Satisfaction

Session Summary:
This program marries research from the fields of neuroscience and positive psychology as it invites participants to consider how they are cultivating a sense of satisfaction in their personal and professional lives.  Anchored in practical application, and sprinkled with humor, this high energy session will leave participants with a fresh perspective about satisfaction -- both as it applies to their own lives and as it applies to their organizational culture.

Speaker: Erika Michalski, Ph.D, Strategically Authentic, CEO

She has supported non-profit organizations through large-scale initiatives and pilot programs and coached university administrators during times of tight budgets and ever-changing student needs. To further this work, Dr. Michalski founded Strategically Authentic, a consulting company dedicated to helping people leverage who they are to get where they want to be. She proudly serves as the company's CEO (Chief Encouragement Officer), embracing her roots as a competitive cheerleader and collegiate cheerleading coach to the benefit of everyone she encounters. Dr. Michalski is known by clients and colleagues as the one who believes in even the most ambitious possibilities as long as there is a plan!
