(From the article): We live in a time when where more people are staying connected on vacations. People have forgotten how important it is for your mind to rejuvenate. Research shows that naps improve productivity—a growing body of evidence shows that taking regular breaks from mental tasks improves productivity and creativity — and that skipping breaks can lead to stress and exhaustion.

This is a fine recap of the latest insights and research in this field. Good work from David Rock, who is the founder of the Neuro Leadership Institute. I had the pleasure of talking to David a few years ago for an article about the influence of neuro science in our modern business world.

Love this.  "Ignite is a specific genre of presentation. An Ignite presenter only has five minutes to speak about the topic, and 20 slides to do so. Every 15 seconds, slides are moved along automatically. The overall purpose of an Ignite session is to empower and excite the audience around a specific subject matter, idea or topic. Ignite is used at conferences all around the world, at EdCamps, and even within professional organizations and businesses."


Perfect way to engage.  Short, sweet and to the point!

1. Why incompetent leaders keep getting hired

 

2. Why more women increase a team’s smarts

 

3. To increase engagement, share more information

 

4. Turns out leadership really is personal

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, December 29, 2012 5:35 AM

(From the article): We’ve learned a lot about leadership this year – with many findings being surprisingly counter-intuitive. Let’s stop hiring the most confident, start to share more information, increase the percentage of woman at the top, and remember that leadership really is personal. Perhaps none of this is ‘new news’, but it is exciting to see the research catch up to our hunches.
