Rewire Your Brain and Become a Better Leader

Rewire Your Brain and Become a Better Leader | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

It's not the carrot or the stick that causes people to follow a leader; it's whether they feel certain they will achieve what the leader says they'll achieve.

Therefore, to lead effectively, the correct question to ask yourself is: "How do I create a sense of certainty in other people?"

Once again, neuroscience has an answer. Humans have what are called "mirror neurons" in nearly every part of the brain: the premotor cortex, the supplementary motor area, the primary somatosensory cortex, and the inferior parietal cortex.

Mirror neurons cause people to imitate the behaviors they see in others. Therefore, to create certainty in others you must first create certainty in yourself.

This is why great leaders always seem so self-confident. Self-confidence is the outward manifestation of the sense of certainty that they've created within themselves, a certainty that infects everyone around them.


Via David Hain
Joe Boutte's insight:

Be a mirror!  By displaying confidence and competence, along with other leadership characteristics, we can affect how others see themselves.  Being a positive influence and example goes a long way in everyday leadership.

Dealing With the Shadow Side of Leadership

Dealing With the Shadow Side of Leadership | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

Senior executives need exceptional drive and interpersonal skills to push themselves and others to succeed – but under pressure, these qualities can go into overdrive, and lead to catastrophe. So what makes managers act out the darker side of their leadership? How can professionals identify and challenge self-defeating behaviours to ensure that leadership shadows or ‘gremlins’ are disciplined?

Joe Boutte's insight:

Finding balance and establishing a foundation of integrity keeps leaders from crossing into the dark side.

Performance Counts

Joe Boutte's insight:

Character. Integrity. Honesty. Ethics. Morality.


These words and others like them often dominate the media.
Strangely, we only seem to take notice when the media are reporting
on the absence of these – some CEO gets caught fudging the
company tax returns; some senior military officer turns his/her eyes
when subordinates sexually harass junior people; some government
agency covers up the latest scandal. We seldom are exposed, however, to shining examples of the presence of ethical behavior.

Take a break and unleash your freedom of thought!  Everyday leadership is not just problem-solving, it's teamwork, thinking, failing, succeeding, and influencing people through a variety of approaches. Don't be afraid to try something new and different.  There's a reason we had recess in school and we may need a recess each day to stimulate our mind, body, and soul.  Give it a try!
