"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."
