Manage Your Energy Not Your Time
by Loehr, 2007


NeuroLeadership is an emerging field of study focused on bringing "hard" scientific knowledge into the areas of leadership development, consulting and coaching. It looks at the functioning of the brain and the neurological impact of such hard wiring on how individuals in a social environment make decisions, solve problems, regulate their emotions, collaborate with and influence others, and facilitate change. NeuroLeadership engages the "people," as opposed to the functional side of business. It offers provocative insights and practical tools and suggestions on how to build increased engagement and motivation in the workplace. A good place to begin to explore this area is with the article "The Emerging Field of NeuroLeadership", which can be found on the Links page under "Education & Resources".
