Today's guest is doctor Janelle MacAuley, an Air Force Veteran and mental wellness pioneer and, most importantly to me, a mentor and friend.
We explore the concept of mind wandering, her views on harmony as opposed to balance, and why leaders should never give advice. We also discuss the benefits of "mental prehab" and "no email Friday".
Her own personal journey led to earning her Ph.D. with work in the field of strategic health and human performance. With her innovative leadership style, she was the first leader to introduce mindfulness as a proactive performance strategy within the US military. She continues to consult within the DoD, DoJ, and corporate America delivering keynotes, training, and a high-performance mindset training program that she developed with Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks and Dr. Michael Gervais, a high-performance sports psychologist.
Jannell is a TEDx speaker and mother of two, who is on a mission to help leaders and organizations excel in high-stress and rugged environments, by showing them how to lean into each moment.
