The Brain and Leadership
REALLY? ANOTHER BOOK ABOUT LEADERSHIP? Every day brings a new article, book, or video about what makes a great leader. There’s no single recipe for great leadership because it encompasses so many variables and is more art than science. But what if we could leverage science to understand leadership? Sandra McDowell makes a strong connection between common sense offered universally by mothers, leadership in the workplace—and neuroscience. This book is for leaders who want to optimize engagement and performance. It reveals: - the hidden forces that hijack productivity and result in sub-par engagement and performance - how to harness the social brain for better teamwork and collaboration - strategies and best practices for effective brain-based leadership for yourself and others. Your Mother Was Right is an easy-to-read, relatable, and memorable experience that will support your ability to lead yourself and others more effectively.
