Cynthia Kivland's insight:

As a leadership and smarter emotions coach, I often work with leaders’ on how to manage “emotional moments of truth”. During a crucial conversation, people often experience the “emotional” flight, fight or flock reflex. The flight reflex turns into silence and/or avoidance, the fight reflex turns into violence, while during the flock response leaders avoid the truth, and flock to other leaders who share their beliefs.Read the entire article!

The Brain and How Leaders Learn

The Brain and How Leaders Learn | SMARTER Emotions Every Employer Wants | Scoop.it
Neuroscience has made big leaps to help leaders understand how we learn.
Cynthia Kivland's insight:

When designing learning events, research points to four must-haves to embed new ideas. First, attention has to be very high; multitasking dramatically reduces recall. The chemical processes to encode memories only activate when we’re very focused. Second, people need to generate their own mental maps around new ideas. They can’t just watch or listen; effort is central. Third, emotions need to be high; we only remember things we feel strongly about. Finally, we grow our memories, so spacing out learning is critical. These four elements — attention, generation, emotion and spacing — form the AGES model. 


How can you apply the AGES model when designing leadership initiatives?
