Neuroscience leadership studies is a relatively new field of scholarship. Choose and discuss at least two recent findings in the field of neuroscience and express ways in which these can be incorporated into one’s leadership style. Use the readings found in the Lessons section for week seven. Support your work with references and intext citations.
Good evening everyone,
This week’s forum post is about neuroscience and incorporating it into leadership. A new scientific field has combined both leadership and neuroscience— NeuroLeadership. NeuroLeadership studies leadership skills like the ability to solve problems, regulate emotions, cooperate with others, and promote change. Scientists and researchers can measure brain activity in leadership when solving problems—in a linear and non-linear way— to see how the brain is affected when leadership is making decisions. Another metric is the responses leadership brains produce when connecting with employees (Rock, 2010).
NeuroLeadership— the integration of neuroscience and leadership has come to the forefront of organizational leadership strategies because there is so much differing data on what constitutes a great leader or great leadership within an organization (Rock, 2010). Leadership makes the most impact within an organization, yet it is difficult to pinpoint the exact formula that makes employees least resistant to change. Neuroscience can possibly pinpoint at what exact moment— biologically— leadership loses their followers allegiance (Rock, 2010). This can be a powerful tool in an organization because one of the main factors for failure in an organization is when it stays stagnant and does not evolve to meet the market. If leadership can crack the code as to when and why, neurologically, people are resistant to change then they can more effectively and efficiently institute change. Many times, when leadership tries to employ change, they fail to implement it effectively among all employees. Looking at it neurologically can help try to solve the mystery. Thanks!

Managers who understand the recent breakthroughs in cognitive science can lead and influence mindful change: organizational transformation that takes into account the physiological nature of the brain, and the ways in which it predisposes people to resist some forms of leadership and accept others. This does not imply that management — of change or anything else — is a science. There is a great deal of art and craft in it. But several conclusions about organizational change can be drawn that make the art and craft far more effective. These conclusions would have been considered counterintuitive or downright wrong only a few years ago.
During the last two decades, scientists have gained a new, far more accurate view of human nature and behavior change because of the integration of psychology (the study of the human mind and human behavior) and neuroscience (the study of the anatomy and physiology of the brain). Imaging technologies such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET), along with brain wave analysis technologies such as quantitative electroencephalography (QEEG), have revealed hitherto unseen neural connections in the living human brain. Advanced computer analysis of these connections has helped researchers develop an increasing body of theoretical work linking the brain (the physical organ) with the mind (the human consciousness that thinks, feels, acts, and perceives). After just a few months of learning to drive a car, people can typically drive “without thinking.” If they then try to drive on the other side of the road, say in another country, the act of driving suddenly becomes much more difficult. The prefrontal cortex must now be used to keep track of the action. Many travelers never want to undergo this experience. Similarly, for those used to an automatic transmission, the first time driving a car with a standard transmission can be a nerve-wracking experience. (Indeed, the basal ganglia area operates like an automatic transmission, shifting among patterns of deeply held thought.)
