Neuroscience research related to leadership has exploded in the last fifteen years. Findings from contemporary research are examined in an easy to understand and meaningful way in this online Short Course to provide practical strategies for leaders that can be used immediately. Optimal brain function for leaders draws on human motivation, learning and influence theory. The premise that leadership is about influence, not just authority has implications to how we lead others if we want to inspire others to be at their peak.
