Ep 48 - 'The DNA of Performance' with Alessandra Edwards
Show Notes

Welcome to Her Ambitious Career, the personal branding and success podcast for ambitious corporate women who expect more from their careers.

This episode, 'The DNA of Performance' is a fascinating insight into our genetics and how our genetics might impact our ability to lead effectively.

In this conversation, Alessandra and I are talking about:

- The differences between leaders who have the 'CEO' gene and the 'Warrior' gene
- How genes present themselves in their truest form in our 30s and 40s
- How to identify when you're operating at your 'genetic potential'
- And an exploration of all sorts of symptoms including insomnia, excessive thinking, anger...
- And a discussion too about sleep, diet, exercise, adrenaline and how to optimise your performance. 

Alessandra says:

"There are different patterns of genetics related to personality traits and how we deal with stress."  (Alessandra Edwards, guest on Her Ambitious Career podcast)
