“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Sarah Peyton, neuroscience educator and author of “Your Resonant Self,” knows from years of research that the popular children’s adage is bullsh*t—words may not break your bones, but language has a powerful effect on our brains.
In the first of three conversations between epigenetic coach, Rajkumari Neogy, and Sarah, the two investigate interpersonal communication and how it can contribute to toxic workplace environments. They also explore emotional intelligence, how language influences cortisol and dopamine levels, and the science behind swear words. Rajkumari and Sarah offer listeners a glimpse into the minds of neuroscience experts including Jaak Panksepp and Iain McGilchrist as they discuss how to foster empathy at work and why using resonant language matters.
