“An epigenetic change known as “methylation”— named after methyl, the chemical compound that is responsible— shuts down a key gene that is designed to tell the stress system to turn off when a threat has passed. The result: stress dysregulation (SDR) that leads to an oversupply of the stress hormone cortisol on a pretty constant basis.”
The impact the person has on an organisation which they work for / are involved with goes a great deal further than whatever job or role description they may have.
When people are in the grip of fear, anxiety, depression, or chronic stress, they are unable to make realistic assessment of situations. The pre-frontal cortex goes “offline.” Creative thinking and innovation, indeed, all higher-level brain functions, are stifled.
This article is a brief description of the model of the brain and mind we use in Liminal Coaching
This is made up of three basic parts:
- The prefrontal cortex, roughly synonymous with the conscious mind.
- The neocortex, roughly synonymous with the unconscious mind, and
- The limbic system, or instinctive mind, which I refer to as the primitive brain.
These three elements should work together as a team.
