Leading From The Frontal Lobe: The Neuroscience Of Leadership

Your business, as well as your employees, can’t afford for your brain to decline—not even for a day. You wouldn’t allow that to happen to your heart, eyes or lungs. So why would you allow such slippage from your most valued internal asset that directly impacts the advancement of your work? Your brain’s frontal lobe unequivocally contributes to your work success.  It builds resilience in difficult times. It contributes to accurate and forward-learning executive functions of your integrated reasoning and deep learning. If you fail to harness the incredible potential of your brain, you inhibit your success—personally and professionally.

After attending this session, the participant will be able to:

    • Compare and contrast the executive functions versus the limbic system of your brain.
