The Neuroscience Of Effective Leadership

The Neuroscience Of Effective Leadership | Motivational Leadership | 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.

Sometimes we just try to over-think issues.  Give your brain a rest and more often than not a clear decision will emerge.

How To Make The Perfect First Impression (According To Science)

How To Make The Perfect First Impression (According To Science) | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Can we really judge a book by its cover? When it comes to making snap judgments about others, it turns out, we may be pretty good at doing just that.

 

We've all heard the truism, "You only make one first impression." It's true -- and these impressions may be more powerful than we would imagine.

 

Our brains take in a huge number of verbal and non-verbal cues almost instantaneously when we meet someone (or just look at a photo of them) to calculate powerful impressions that are often as accurate as the impressions we form over longer periods of time.
