Think about this. Nobody in their right mind would make decisions based on 30-year old data. And, if you were running your organisation with software, technology or machinery that is 30-40 years old, it's unlikely that you'd be competitive, or even exist!
There are as many theories about Leadership and Management as there are days in the year. However, the Brain remains a reliable constant. It's part of being human. Therefore, knowing how it works and how to manage it can give you a competitive advantage.
If you are in a leadership position, knowing about the brain will not only make you a better leader but also enable you to create an organisation that inspires your people to take pride in their work, bring more attention and resourcefulness to their tasks and work more collaboratively with their peers.
If you are in a management position, knowing about the brain will not only make you a better manager but it will enable you to coach your people, delegate with more skill, build better relationships, motivate and engage your teams, deal with underperformance and juggle various projects with more success.
If you are a frontline employee or trainee, knowing about the brain will not only make you more engaged, it will enable you to become more effective in your work, reduce stress, avoid burnout, take responsibility for your own learning and development, manage your career and generally be happier in your life.
