Evolve: A New Era of Leadership

Nov 7, 2023

In this episode, Nicole Lewis Keeber delves into the intricacies of our nervous system, explaining its primary function - to keep us alive. She explores the concept of the nervous system constantly interpreting our environment, deciding what is safe and what’s not.
