Study Finds High Brain Integration in Top Performers - Psych Central News | Learning, Brain & Cognitive Fitness | Scoop.it

 

Why do some people excel in sports, music and managing companies? New research points to uniquely high mind-brain development in those who excel. "What we have found is an astonishing integration of brain functioning in high performers compared to average-performing controls,” said Fred Travis, Ph.D., director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. He claims this research is the “first in the world to show that there is a brain measure of effective leadership.”

Warning Signs of an Unhealthy Appetite for Risk| Mindsets

Warning Signs of an Unhealthy Appetite for Risk| Mindsets | Learning, Brain & Cognitive Fitness | Scoop.it

By Carol Dweck. "How is it that so many corporate stars — leaders at Enron, WorldCom, and the major banking institutions, for instance — are so inclined to take outrageous risks that they bring their companies, even entire economies, to the brink of disaster? I believe that it comes down to mindset. Business leadership who take unusual and unwise risks tend to share what I call a "fixed" mindset. They think they're infallible and they want to show the world that they're superior. This is in contrast to people with a "growth" mindset, who are more oriented to learning."

David Rock: The Neuroscience of Leadership

David Rock: The Neuroscience of Leadership | Learning, Brain & Cognitive Fitness | Scoop.it

"With the 2012 elections just months away, people are now, more than ever before, thinking about leadership. What works? What doesn't work? What should we look for in leaders and how do we know if one is going to be more successful than another?...Neuroscience research is beginning to help fill in the gaps. While we are nowhere near being able to scan a leader's brain while running a meeting (even if that was a good idea), we can study some of the building blocks of what leaders do -- making decisions under pressure, solving complex problems, negotiating a transaction or trying to persuade others. There have been some big surprises in the research. Here are just a few."

Can Leadership Be Mentored?

Can Leadership Be Mentored? | Learning, Brain & Cognitive Fitness | Scoop.it

Basically, the human brain comes equipped with neurons that are prepared to react and adapt to a wide range of environments; whether intellectually or physically rigorous, the human brain is able to shift gears and develop skills as necessary well into adolescence. Exceptional young people -- prodigies -- are indicative not merely of their own rare and unique mental capacities; they are also a reflection of what their communities and cultures emphasize as worthy pursuits. Prodigies have mentors. Without mentorship, education, and development, there would be very little continuity of culture over history. Those who strive to teach us have a permanent impact on the future.
