David Rock: The Neuroscience of Leadership

David Rock: The Neuroscience of Leadership | NeuroWork | 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."

Managers come from different walks of life, possess various characteristics, and have their own philosophies regarding how to manage a business and employees. After 20 years of delivering management training programs, these are common mistakes made by managers at different levels and in various industries.


Take a look at the most common mistakes.

How The Brain Rewires Itself

How The Brain Rewires Itself | NeuroWork | Scoop.it


"FOR DECADES, THE PREVAILING DOGMA IN neuroscience was that the adult human brain is essentially immutable, hardwired, fixed in form and function, so that by the time we reach adulthood we are pretty much stuck with what we have. Yes, it can create (and lose) synapses, the connections between neurons that encode memories and learning. And it can suffer injury and degeneration. But this view held that if genes and development dictate that one cluster of neurons will process signals from the eye and another cluster will move the fingers of the right hand, then they'll do that and nothing else until the day you die. There was good reason for lavishly illustrated brain books to show the function, size and location of the brain's structures in permanent ink.ut research in the past few years has overthrown the dogma. In its place has come the realization that the adult brain retains impressive powers of "neuroplasticity"--the ability to change its structure and function in response to experience."

When Marcel Wieder’s aunt was diagnosed with early onset dementia several years ago, the Toronto resident started to worry about his own brain health “The question is: ’Is this within a normal range?”’ Wieder said. “I don’t know what the benchmarks are.”

How Do You Manage Up in the Workplace?

How Do You Manage Up in the Workplace? | NeuroWork | Scoop.it

In the classic leadership book Influence Without Authority, Allan R. Cohen and David L. Bradford describe how even workers with no official power can effect change in an organization. They recently teamed up again to write Influencing Up, which explains how employees can manage upwards in the organizational chart — and why they need to, now more than ever.

The co-author of Influencing Up describes how to build a more productive relationship with the boss.

Irene Personne's curator insight, November 20, 2013 6:09 AM

This is one of the articles that remind us how important communication is. Saying things the right way and saying what you think, without forgetting that one person does take the final decision. I especially liked the example " I know one CEO who said, "You're allowed four Nos, and each one has to bring in new information. I will listen to your disagreements, but after the fourth time, if I still disagree, this is the way it's going to be." Bosses have the right to say that. At some point you sign up, and that's where the hierarchy plays a role."

Irregular bedtimes can affect children’s brain development

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, August 27, 2013 4:59 PM

Writing in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, the authors suggest that irregular bedtimes affect the brain’s “plasticity”, or ability to store and learn new information. “Early child development has profound influences on health and wellbeing across the life course. Therefore, reduced or disrupted sleep, especially if it occurs at key times in development, could have important impacts on health throughout life,” the authors write.
