Neuroleadership: A Journey Through the Brain for Business Leaders Management for Professionals

Springer #ad - By following this methodology, the reader will be able to use the knowledge of neuroscience at the workplace to better address individuals’ brains and hence tap into the full power of brains in business. The young business field of neuroleadership is founded on the belief that understanding the brain can give leaders new and powerful insights into human behaviour and how to effectively tap into that knowledge to generate better returns in business.

The book also focuses explicitly on how impactful organisational tools can be from the viewpoint of the brain. The authors look into the fundamental basic needs of human beings, how they are represented in the neural networks, and how this manifests in motivational drives. The book approaches the background, history, and major thinkers in the field, but also reassesses the fundamental concept of neuroleadership.

Neuroleadership: A Journey Through the Brain for Business Leaders Management for Professionals #ad - This book takes you on a journey through the brain, its function and its impact on leadership.


The New Executive Brain: Frontal Lobes in a Complex World

Oxford University Press #ad - At every step, Goldberg challenges entrenched assumptions. Drawing on the latest discoveries, and developing complex scientific ideas and relating them to real life through many fascinating case studies and anecdotes, the author explores how the brain engages in complex decision-making; how it deals with novelty and ambiguity; and how it addresses moral choices.

Elkhonon goldberg's groundbreaking The Executive Brain was a classic of scientific writing, revealing how the frontal lobes command the most human parts of the mind. Goldberg also finds that a complex interaction between the frontal lobes and the amygdale--between a recently evolved and a much older part of the brain--controls emotion, as conscious thoughts meet automatic impulses.

The New Executive Brain: Frontal Lobes in a Complex World #ad - The new executive brain, offering lucid writing and bold, Goldberg affirms Goldberg's place as one of our most creative and insightful scientists, paradigm-shifting ideas. Now he offers a completely new book, providing fresh, iconoclastic ideas about the relationship between the brain and the mind. The author illustrates this observation with a personal example: the difficulty he experienced when trying to pick up a baby alligator he knew to be harmless, as his amygdala battled his effort to extend his hand.

Apes lack language, yet many also show evidence of asymmetric hemispheric development. In the new executive brain, goldberg paints a sweeping panorama of cutting-edge thinking in cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology, one that ranges far beyond the frontal lobes. For example, we know that the left hemisphere of the brain is the seat of language--but Goldberg argues that language may not be the central adaptation of the left hemisphere.


Handbook of NeuroLeadership

Proust Was a Neuroscientist

Mariner Books #ad - More broadly, lehrer shows that there’s a cost to reducing everything to atoms and acronyms and genes. But as jonah lehrer argues in this sparkling debut, science is not the only path to knowledge. Taking a group of artists — a painter, a composer, a poet, a chef, and a handful of novelists — Lehrer shows how each one discovered an essential truth about the mind that science is only now rediscovering.

An ingenious blend of biography, for willing minds can combine the best of both, and first-rate science writing, criticism, Proust Was a Neuroscientist urges science and art to listen more closely to each other, to brilliant effect. We learn, for example, how proust first revealed the fallibility of memory; how george Eliot discovered the brain’s malleability; how the French chef Escoffier discovered umami the fifth taste; how Cézanne worked out the subtleties of vision; and how Gertrude Stein exposed the deep structure of language — a full half-century before the work of Noam Chomsky and other linguists.

Proust Was a Neuroscientist #ad - Measurement is not the same as understanding, and art knows this better than science does. After all, science has cured countless diseases and even sent humans into space. In this technology-driven age, it’s tempting to believe that science can solve every mystery. In fact, when it comes to understanding the brain, art got there first.

Mariner Books. It’s the ultimate tale of art trumping science.


A General Theory of Love

Vintage #ad - Vintage Books USA. Mariner Books. Explaining how relationships function, and how our society dangerously flouts essential emotional laws, how psychotherapy really works, how parents shape their child’s developing self, this is a work of rare passion and eloquence that will forever change the way you think about human intimacy.

This original and lucid account of the complexities of love and its essential role in human well-being draws on the latest scientific research. Three eminent psychiatrists tackle the difficult task of reconciling what artists and thinkers have known for thousands of years about the human heart with what has only recently been learned about the primitive functions of the human brain.

A General Theory of Love #ad - A general theory of love demonstrates that our nervous systems are not self-contained: from earliest childhood, and makes us, in a silent rhythm that alters the very structure of our brains, our brains actually link with those of the people close to us, in large part, establishes life-long emotional patterns, who we are.


The Evolving Self: Problem and Process in Human Development

Harvard University Press #ad - The evolving self describes this process of evolution in rich and human detail, concentrating especially on the internal experience of growth and transition, its costs and disruptions as well as its triumphs. At the heart of our meaning-making activity, the book suggests, is the drawing and redrawing of the distinction between self and other.

Vintage Books USA. The evolving self is the story of our continuing negotiation of this tension. According to robert kegan, adolescence, meaning-making is a lifelong activity that begins in earliest infancy and continues to evolve through a series of stages encompassing childhood, and adulthood. Using piagetian theory in a creative new way to make sense of how we make sense of ourselves, attached, on the one hand, and to be distinct, independent, Kegan shows that each meaning-making stage is a new solution to the lifelong tension between the universal human yearning to be connected, and included, and autonomous on the other.

The Evolving Self: Problem and Process in Human Development #ad - It is a book that is theoretically daring enough to propose a reinterpretation of the Oedipus complex and clinically concerned enough to suggest a variety of fresh new ways to treat those psychological complaints that commonly arise in the course of development. Kegan is an irrepressible storyteller, an impassioned opponent of the health-and-illness approach to psychological distress, and a sturdy builder of psychological theory.

The evolving self focuses upon the most basic and universal of psychological problems―the individual’s effort to make sense of experience, to make meaning of life. Harvard University Press. Mariner Books.

An Everyone Culture: Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization

Harvard Business Review Press #ad - Harvard University Press. A radical new model for unleashing your company’s potentialIn most organizations nearly everyone is doing a second job no one is paying them for—namely, covering their weaknesses, trying to look their best, and managing other people’s impressions of them.
