The neuroscience of leadership is rapidly breaking new ground in leadership training, deepening our understanding of how the brain works and how to maximise our potential to improve effectiveness at work and build better relationships. Ultimately, better knowledge about our own and others' brains helps to inform a wide range of interpersonal skills, as well as project planning and management practices, that have a positive impact on organisational performance and aid the creation of an agile learning organisation.
Neuroscience for Leaders and Managers provides an introduction to the world of neuroscience. Through facilitated discussion, you'll explore the impact of research in relation to key areas relating to organisational success and be exposed to a whole new approach to thinking and behaving in the workplace.
We will apply models based on cutting edge research in practical ways to help uncover personal insights that you will be able to practice and apply outside the session. Throughout the interactive session there is a focus on turning the research into personal understanding and applying it to real life projects and contexts to improve organisational success.
By the end of the course, you will:
- be aware of fundamental brain structures and their functions to provide yourself and others with improved mental models to deal with change, pressure, prioritising, innovation and emotions
- have an increased awareness of your own and others brains alongside how you can enhance the brain’s strengths and manage its limitations
- be able to use your mental resources more effectively and efficiently to increase speed and accuracy at work
- have developed greater mental flexibility through knowledge of how the brain can adapt
- be able to help others understand how habits form and change alongside techniques to support this
- understand how to apply a range of perceptual, cognitive and behavioural styles in different settings to improve individual, group and organisational performance
