An Interview with Marti Glenn PhD, Co-founder and CEO Ryzio Institute

 

Marti Glenn, co-founder and Chief Education Officer of Ryzio Institute, conducts professional trainings and intensive retreats internationally that make it possible for leaders to move beyond coping into thriving. Awareness is the most critical skill that leaders can develop. With awareness, we have a choice.

Marti explains how the nerve you have never heard of is running your life. The polyvagal theory is how our vagus nerve tells our body what to do and how to do it. When we feel safe, the vagus nerve will develop around the heart and calm our nervous system. However, not everyone felt as safe as a child. We can grow the vagus nerve as adults through experiencing safety. Tune in as we talk about love, safety, and trust in the workplace.
