The Brain of a Leader?

Read: idealawg: Leadership: It is as easy as brain surgery

Sounds very interesting, particularly the conclusions from the article it links to, like:

• Behaviorism doesn’t work. Change efforts based on incentive and threat (the carrot and the stick) rarely succeed in the long run.

• Humanism is overrated. In practice, the conventional empathic approach of connection and persuasion doesn’t sufficiently engage people.

• Focus is power. The act of paying attention creates chemical and physical changes in the brain.

All based on research, and worth a further read.
