Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
What does neuroscience have to do with leadership? Everything.
Recent advances in brain science and neuroimaging can dramatically improve the way leaders work with colleagues to drive successful change. As the brain is increasingly examined in the context of personal and organizational development, remarkable insights are being uncovered: insights that are leading to powerful new strategies for improving business execution.
In Your Brain and Business, Harvard psychiatrist, brain-imaging researcher, and executive coach Srinivasan S. Pillay illuminates the rapidly emerging links between modern brain science and the corner office. He reveals powerful ways that neuroscientific insights can be used practically by today’s executives and presents new lessons for coaches who want to help their clients overcome common leadership problems.
Discover how leaders and coaches worldwide are already applying this knowledge to dramatically improve personal performance–and learn how you can do it, too.
