The Neuroscience Of Effective Leadership

The Neuroscience Of Effective Leadership | Leadership Potential | Scoop.it

What do you get when you cross your grandmother’s advice with the latest research in neuroscience?

 

According to Eric J. McNulty, this unlikely intersection holds the key to being a good leader. As the director of research at the National Preparedness Leadership Initiative, McNulty is often asked to recommend the latest and greatest reads on leadership. What he’s discovered is that books on brain science serve up sage insights more often than the traditional title penned from the corner office. He’s also observed that scientific research on the brain reveals what his grandma knew all along.

Extroverts are outgoing and introverts are shy, right? Not necessarily.

Extroversion and introversion describe where people focus and find their energy—outside themselves or inwardly.

 

Extroverts (or those who have extroverted tendencies) gain energy by being around other people. They recharge in social situations. Often, the more people that are around, the more energised extroverts feel.

On the other hand, introverts often lose energy in social situations and need time alone to recharge their batteries.
