Corporate Wellness with Allison Manzi

It’s time to talk about the behavioral science behind psychological safety and effective leadership.

In this episode of the Beauty of Conflict, Susan and CrisMarie have a wonderful interview with Allison Manzi, a cognitive health specialist who is the founder and CEO of Aion Lifestyle, about the importance of creating psychological safety in corporate workplaces by balancing compassion and accountability in leadership. Allison had an unconventional journey from musical theater to personal training, where she became passionate about helping people with their fitness and nutrition goals. She delves into trauma and inhibitory thought patterns, with a focus on creating safety for individuals in corporate workplaces, and briefly covers the idea of incorporating matriarchal leadership values into patriarchal societies. This conversation with Allison also encompasses themes related to personal and professional development, behavioral psychology, leadership, and effective communication.
