In today’s challenging marketplace of ideas and practices, managers advance individual and organizational skills at all levels, as they seize new opportunities with brainpowered tools that enhance innovation for a new era.
Lead Prosperity in Turbulent Times
It’s remarkable how far study of the brain has come in the past two decades. The upshot?
Managers could capitalize on neuro-designed tactics to meet unique challenges. Leaders could come away with dynamically innovative ventures. Imagine workplace advances that fit the innovative new era we’ve just entered.
Consider the missed genius for leaders who either cling to the past or regret what’s here now.
Conventional approaches won’t get past gridlock or compromise as seen in the lack of punch needed to stretch and grow new job opportunities. We have a long way to go, when you watch toxins stunt growth in less resilient workforces, while morale tanks. Loss and failure’s no surprise, when disconnect exists between what brains do well and what managers neglect to do. It doesn’t have to be that way.
10 Brain Facts Trigger Management Tools
Managers improve tone, increase talent and transform training, based on how they:
- Engage opposing views to use more working memory rather than remain in ruts. Otherwise you default to the basal ganglia – the mental storehouse that replays past tone habits.
- Access both left and right brainpower, to locate diverse pathways across isolated silos. Combine hard and soft skills, for instance, or tame the amygdala to calm that seat of emotions when it heats.
- Run from stress and other workplace toxins, since stress shrinks brains, and cortisol crushes progress. Laugh at the little things instead, and increase serotonin chemicals, by using good tone.
- Question to stoke multiple intelligence responses in ways that increase curiosity. Gain innovative outcomes in novel ways to ratchet up workplace IQ for ongoing inventions.
- Cultivate interpersonal intelligence initiatives, especially in volatile markets, by meeting customer needs through stoking more synergy between arts and sciences.
- Activate risk’s neural pathways for new initiatives to spark the kind of chemical and electrical circuitry that a genius uses to invent. Motivate well being and higher productivity from all workers.
- Mindguide - or mutually mentor others – in ways that teach as you learn. Retain more by doing than by listening. Rewire brain cells for mindguiding by teaching and learning in tandem.
- Facilitate improved individual and organizational DNA by creating more interactive meetings and developmental sessions where folks explore new ideas that offer the kind of hope tiggered by the trapped Chilean miners before being rescued in October, 2010.
- Reflect with people rather than assess or ctitique them in conventional ways. Acknowledge more success and trigger change with mutual dividends through neuro-plasticity, that changes brains daily.
- Propose solutions for problems raised at work, and model brainpowered leadership rather than venting which creates neuron pathways for more of the same.
Without doubt, organizational change can appear daunting at first. Those managers who lead even one neuro-discovery from the list though, already cracked open the window for effective change in their organizations.
What if you started by simply asking a two footed question, or stepping in the direction of a novel idea worth pursuing?
