WEDO Pay It Forward with Milena Radakovic

Leading Through Change

In this episode, we have a special guest, Deanna Werklund, from Emergenetics Canada, who will share her inspiring story about leading through change.

Deanna shares her personal experience with Emergenetics, a neuroscience-based profiling tool used for HR, team building, and hiring. She highlights the importance of understanding thinking attributes, and also behavioral attributes. By identifying what energizes us genetically, Emergenetics helps create balanced teams by considering attributes like conceptual, social, structural, and logical thinking. Deanna explains how these attributes play a vital role in team dynamics, both in personal and professional environments.

If you’re an entrepreneur or business leader seeking talent for your team, Deanna provides valuable insights on the qualities to look for, especially in a mature industry where finding the right person can be challenging. She also hints at upcoming changes within Emergenetics, as they work towards a more globally integrated approach, combining efforts across different regions.
