Neuroleadership – EY Academy of Business

Neuroleadership

„A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way” – John Maxwell.

The pandemic changed everything. It disrupted established processes and habits. Old is being replaced by new – it may be better in some ways and worse in others. How can anyone in a position of leadership navigate these strange times?

In addition to the undoubted advantage of looking at the company’s processes and procedures, difficulties have arisen again.

Difficulties arise from being isolated and losing the connection from the workplace with our team. Much of what we do day in and day out during the pandemic is the polar opposite of what we were used to just a few years ago. This new normal impacts the brain and how it is supposed to work and function properly.

This training allows the participants to begin to reverse course and learn how the brain functions properly by opening up to this new world (including hybrid work) in which we find ourselves. When we can instil new and more powerful habits, our personal worlds open up, and so does our capability to become powerful leaders.

We invite you to join us on a co-creative journey where we will, step by step, discover new dimensions of what is possible for humans, with the ultimate goal of building our teams based on a high level of trust, loyalty and a feeling of connection at work.

This training course has a substantive foundation most of which is based on neuroscience, or in other words, the science of the brain with a focus on the biological and social aspects.

A special branch of neuroscience called “Neuro-Leadership” focuses on leveraging the brain to be a more impactful leader.

Neuroleadership is a workshop for next-generation leaders who see the need to adapt the way they manage to changing generations and changing times.

 

Leaders who care about tapping into the nature of human potential and taking a scientific approach to developing people will benefit most from the workshop.

 

This workshop is for leaders who are beginning to see the need to ask themselves what is the role of humans in the age of automation, and want to make the most effective use of the unique properties of the human brain in establishing a competitive advantage for the company.

 

For experienced managers who want to achieve a higher level of leadership in an environment of uncertainty, high pressure and change.

Main benefits from participation in the workshop:

  • expanding knowledge about the brain and how it works;
  • exploring some tools which can support the process of building trust and loyalty;
  • shifting the beliefs around stress and preventing and reversing professional burnout;
  • exploring multiple tools which support and expand self-development and team member development.

The participants will acquire knowledge about:

  • the newest scientific discoveries related to leadership;
  • neurocommunication, i.e., biology connected with understanding and absorbing information.

The participants will acquire the following skills:

  • asking questions broadening the perspective and engaging action;
  • reducing the destructive impact of stress on communication and involvement in a team.

They will develop competences related to:

  • connecting with employees with different attitudes and personality types.

1. Welcoming participants, introducing them to the meeting. Or what, how and why?

2. Leader, or who? Expectations, challenges and reality — opening discussion

3. Between cortisol and dopamine, or neuroscience in the service of leadership and communication. The impact of a pandemic, stress and trust on the resources we have access to at the moment

4. The foundations of neuroleadership:

  • The brain stem — how to tame a reptile so as not to close yourself in relations based on fight or flight
  • The limbic system — understanding mammals, or how to start hearing, strengthening or changing your own beliefs and beliefs in a team, and how to effectively work on habits that support the company’s development
  • The prefrontal cortex — how to reach the full potential of both an individual and a team

5. Belonging to the new reality. The role of oxytocin in building loyalty, based on “Moral Molecule” by Paul Zak

6. From “Resistor” to “Co-Creator” — why people leave and how to change it. That is about three-level conversations and the attitudes they lead to according to Judith Glaser — Conversational Intelligence

7. Dopamine and feedback — or why does the brain need feedback ‘immediately’

  • The art of feedback and its impact on the development of people

8. How well do you know yourself and your team? How beliefs about team members impact the level of happiness or unhappiness of everyone in the team

9. SCARF model — how to build overall team trust by meeting the social needs of the brain

10. Measure of specifics — or SCARF in practice

11. Why the Leader needs to get the stress hormones of cortisol and adrenaline under control, as it has a direct impact on their team and how it functions

12. Effective techniques to dissolve tension and relieve stress and heal the long-term effects of stress on the body and mind

13. Deep dive into the David Allen book “Getting Things Done”, which can massively increase productivity and allow for more time for growing teams

14. The Power of the Heart and how being coherent can heal the body and mind from the ravages of stress hormones

15. Leading from the Inside Out — how to embrace each team member and meet them where they are, and down-to-earth ways of connecting and communicating to create a sense of belonging and vision

16. Discussion, summary, conclusions
