“We have three energetic engines of what it means to be human. One is our feeling, one is our thinking, and one is our behaving. When those three things are integrated, the way that we’re kind of wired, when we kind of again walk into the party and we’re really behaving and thinking and feeling all in alignment, this is the fullest expression of a human being.” explains Dr. Julia DiGangi.
Our new friend. Dr. Julia DiGangi brought the conversation today! We dig into the emotional, cognitive, and behavioral structure of the personality and what it means to live in alignment with all three. She is the author of the amazing new book Energy Rising: the Neuroscience of Leading with Emotional Power.
