IN A WORLD THAT IS EMBRACING AND DRIVING Artificial intelligence, ONE QUESTION CONTINUES TO EMERGE - WHAT IS IT TO BE HUMAN?
While this might be a brand new question for many leaders, it’s one that ancient cultures, philosophers, leaders and, more recently, neuroscientists have dedicated many years to understanding and quantifying.
The name NeuroPower refers to the electrical energy (or power) that runs through your brain in neural networks.
When these are running well, and your NeuroPower is strong, you reap the benefits of being innovative, agile and resilient. Furthermore, when teams and organisations access their NeuroPower they become antifragile* (i.e. they get stronger and their performance improves as conditions become more challenging).
Market Leaders Applying the NeuroPower Framework include....
Creating high performance cultures
Independent of the formal structure, an organisation’s performance networks underpin the delivery of all mission-critical tasks. However, these networks are rarely defined and often poorly optimised.
Leaders who recognise and understand how to chart and improve the effectiveness of the organisation’s performance networks can significantly improve specific performance areas.
This requires a good working knowledge not only of how networks form and operate but also of the six social cognitive needs that underpin high performance cultures. With extensive academic research that has established the correlation between the satisfaction of these needs and desired KPIs, and a working knowledge of the neuroscience that sits behind them, leaders have access to a powerful lever to drive strategic outcomes.
Credibility, presence and engagement
Swiss psychologist C.J. Jung said “Consciousness itself is the ability to recognise the difference between reactivity (System 1) and responsiveness (System 2)”. This is sometimes referred to as the Elephant (System 1) and the Rider (System 2). Understanding your Elephant and Rider, the Elephants that are sanctioned and reinforced by your culture, and the innovative Rider or mindsets that will the drive the change required, is critical for leaders to understand in a fast-paced and complex environment.
Day 2 looks at the brain’s limbic system (System 1) and how it drives people’s reactions, perceptions and behavior – including how they resist change, their triggers for conflict, what motivates them, their preferred communication styles and how they make decisions. Leaders can use this insight to drive their personal credibility and presence and effectively engage with others.
LEADERSHIP MINDSETS AND INNOVATION
Research by Keeley et al. (2013) has found that the more types of innovation a company uses the better it performs when benchmarked against the S&P 500 and that innovation comes in many different forms (business model, structure, product, channel etc.). A leader’s Innovation Mindset dictates the style of innovation they will prefer and the type of culture they foster to nurture this innovation.
Day 3 looks at the brain’s rational system (System 2) and introduces and explores the Strategic Innovation Mindsets framework which outlines and explains a person’s rational personality profile and then explores the value they add to an organization from a leadership and innovation perspective
This program is ideal for anybody interested in creating high performance cultures and committed to co-creating ‘antifragile’ leaders, teams and organisations.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
The upcoming two-day NeuroPower Leadership Intensive will explore how we can make the most of being human through:
Increasing our consciousness and antifragility at an individual, team and organisational level
Bringing out the best in our people during times of stress, ambiguity and change
Using practical tools, templates and approaches to embed NeuroPower in your leadership practice
How can it help me?
The Two-day program is a leadership intensive focused on:
Creating high performance cultures based on:
The neuroscience of cognitive complexity, which gives rise to a roadmap for cultural maturity.
Leveraging performance networks (centered around key deliverables, which determine the degree to which organizations can deliver on mission-critical work).
Leadership credibility and engaging for change:
Applying insights from neuroscience to break through cultural resistance.
Maximizing innovation hotspots and resolving blockages and pain points.
Modeling and bringing out desired innovation behavior.
