Neuroscience for Leaders and Managers

Neuroscience plays a significant role in managing people by keeping the physiological aspect of the human brain in mind.

There are several ways in which using Neuroscience for management may benefit the manager or leader, the subordinate, as well as the organization, such as follows:

Neuroscience for Leaders and Managers

Requirements

  • No prior knowledge is required.

There are several ways in which using Neuroscience for management may benefit the manager or leader, the subordinate, as well as the organization, such as follows:

It helps greatly enhance leadership performance.

It enhances and leads to a heightened level of accountability not only in the management realms but throughout the entire organization.

It increases the overall productivity of subordinates.

It greatly boosts and improves subordinate morale.

Neuroscience helps leaders to create an enhanced support system for the subordinate to work in.

It reduces the turn-over time.

The knowledge and understanding of Neuroscience help understand neutron activation patterns which is crucial to help Managers and Leaders to engage effectively with clients and subordinates, and facilitate change of uncomfortable, or less helpful patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Before understanding the application of Neuroscience to management, it is crucial to understand some of the key principles of Neuroscience, which are categorized as follows:

Discovery of Mirror Neurons:

Earlier brain was seen as a closed system. However, this has changed with the discovery of mirror neurons.

The discovery of mirror neurons brought forth a new revolutionary finding about the human brain that rather than being a closed system, the human brain works as a social network.

The human brain is continually reacting to the environment and is connected which forms social patterns which in turn shapes the way the activation patterns between the neurons change.

Neuron Activation:

Another basic principle that changes the way we think about human brain and psychoanalysis is that the neurons are pliable and plastic in nature.

Hence, they change activation patterns within themselves from one neuron to the other.

Hence, in order to facilitate any change in neural activation, it requires continuous and structured talking therapies.
