"Demand is relentlessly rising. Our capacity is not keeping pace. The traditional solution to higher demand has been to invest more time. Unfortunately, time is finite, and most of us have no hours left to invest. Energy, however, can be systematically expanded --- and it can also be regularly renewed. To operate at our best, we need four energy sources: physical (quantity), emotional (quality), mental (focus), and the energy of the human spirit (purpose). This talk will focus on the role of energy in fueling sustainable high performance, and in motivating others."

"What defines humans: self-interest, self-focus, empathy or compassion? While "exogenous" sciences like economy and sociology failed to give by themselves an exhaustive definition of human nature, producing partial concepts like the "homo economicus", the answer might come from an "inside-out" approach."
"Character. We want it in our leaders, we seek it in our spouses and friends, we try to teach it to our children. The prevailing view is that it comes from hard work and due diligence. It's cultivated; it's stable. But if character is so stable, then why do we so often disagree over who's got it and who doesn't? Professor David DeSteno shows how science has turned prevailing wisdom upside down by revealing that character, vice, and virtue are predominantly shaped by forces outside of our awareness."
"His books The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who've Lived the Longest and Thrive: Finding Happiness the Blue Zones Way appeared on many best seller lists and were both featured on Oprah and other US and international media. Dan Buettner's colossal research effort on happiness found four locations around the world ("Blue Zones") with the highest reported well‐being. In the societies he visits, it's no coincidence that the way people interact with each other, shed stress, nourish their bodies, and view their world yields more happiness and good years of life.
Utilizing this data, Dan ultimately founded a company that puts the world's best practices in longevity and well-being to work in people's lives. In 2009, he partnered with AARP to apply the principles of The Blue Zones to Albert Lea, Minnesota and successfully raised life expectancy and lowered health care costs by some 40%. Writing in Newsweek, Harvard University's Walter Willet called the results "stunning.""

"Effective leaders don’t buy into or try to suppress their inner experiences. Instead they approach them in a mindful, values-driven, and productive way—developing what we call emotional agility. In our complex, fast-changing knowledge economy, this ability to manage one’s thoughts and feelings is essential to business success. Numerous studies, from the University of London professor Frank Bond and others, show that emotional agility can help people alleviate stress, reduce errors, become more innovative, and improve job performance."
