John Wooden: One of the most studied and successful UCLA Basketball Coaches of all time is a pretty cool guy. With simple principles, he just about sums up Leadership, be it of children / youth, or as a leader of adults in any organisation ... I have half a page of notes from this TED talk, all of which capture the principles that we can now explain with psychology and neuroscience. We've always known the types of methods John employs work, now, with the latest advances in brain science, we also know why. That in itself helps the learning process in others (gives 'reason' to instruction).
If you want to address your approach to leadership with this depth, give us a call. We're waiting to help.
It's always good to see wide ranging and deep reaching commissioned reports into the field in which you specialise, to provide the statistics and data required to set the scene in the markets you serve. So it was with enthusiasm we received this link and related 60 page document (attached below) from the CMI today, providing an outlook from 2014 to 2020 in respect to the practical development of Leaders and Managers. http://bit.ly/1nBWKrf
We at Duxinaroe are very pleased to be in early stage discussions with a charity focused on providing better parenting and advancing the levels of knowledge around neuroscience and psychology in that field.
The science introduced in this excellent TED talk is just the kind of thing we need to help in that joint venture; especially the bit when Patricia Kuhl shows the difference between human interaction and the same stimulus provided by a TV or audio source.
Fail to change the belief and fail to change at all.
My business partner said to me today, "A common definition of culture is 'It's just the way we do things around here', but that's focused on behaviours, on doing, which is an outcome, an emergent property of an earlier brain based process. Using our definition of Culture, and using our knowledge of psychology and neuroscience of change, we look at 'root cause' behind behaviour, at how people are 'being' before they 'do' anything.
So we need to talk about 'The WHY we do things around here!'
