Human systems intelligence relates to unique human abilities to engage in collective intelligence and regulate our nervous systems.
We do this by mastering the mammalian mechanisms of sociality and bonding. This includes the ability to recognize patterns of behavior, communicate effectively, and adapt to changing circumstances.
Systems resilience relates to various pillars of network engineering that allow for robustness of systems that can withstand adversity using strategic mechanisms of anticipation, resistance, detection, response and recovery.
We can develop human systems intelligence and resilience by increasing our self-awareness and knowledge of how the neurophysiology of perception, emotional reactions and unconscious processes influence our ability to interact, communicate and co-regulate with others.
As we increase our understanding, we can become more intentional with how we use our unique forms of intelligence, sociality and communication as mechanisms for achieving our highest levels of wellbeing and energy optimization.

Learning ABOUT the brain improves how the brain functions.
As we become more aware of how the brain and nervous system operate, we begin to activate circuits that are related to self-regulation, and executive functioning, particularly in the frontal lobes. These new activations create positive reinforcing feedback, loops that allow us to become better at recognizing patterns, and using inhibitory control to help us have more mastery over our responses and behaviors.
This website and all my content is designed to help you become more aware of how your brain and body respond to life AND give you research-informed principles and practices that help humans unlock their potential, cope with life’s challenges and thrive.
To start that journey, you can download my three free mini-books (Human Systems Intelligence, Super-Regulators: the science of self-regulation and Mindset, Discomfort & New Realities), which you’ll get as downloadable pdfs when you subscribe.
I’ll also send you weekly insights, including neuroscience-based videos, handouts, the growth mindset goal-setting booklet, and more.
Thank you for checking out this site, and I hope my content helps you in some way!
Subscribers also get free mini-gifts such as handouts or slides I’ve used in previous workshops and training. Share this page if you know of someone who might benefit from these free resources!
“I can't thank you enough for the mini-books. Your podcast is amazing and helps me so much in my counseling practice - as well as in my own life and relationships. I'm 72, and an almost-new clinical mental health counselor, and, while my grad studies were good, even my limited understanding of neuroscience allows me to help my clients understand that change is possible, and they're not irreparably damaged by their traumas. Thank you.”
