Background information on the topic "Neuroleadership"

The progress of modern neuroscience is immense. The transfer of neuroscientific findings to practical applications is particularly topical.

For the first time, neurologists and leadership experts have now come together to apply the findings of brain research to the management of employees.
The new insights show that the human image of "homo oeconomicus," which has long influenced leadership behavior, is far too one-sided.

However, an incomplete employee concept can quickly lead to wrong decisions on the part of the leader. One might assume that salary alone is sufficient to motivate employees. However, successful motivation is a central aspect of employee management. Accordingly, devising a reward system to increase employee motivation is an important element of neuroleadership.

The human image of the "brain-directed man" drawn from brain research is increasingly being applied in the business sciences.
Information about neurology results leads to a completely new kind of self-reflection.

According to this, decision-making is never completely rational, but always linked to emotions. It is necessary to recognize and understand these emotions.
The regulation of one's own emotions in stress and conflict situations is another characteristic that makes for successful leadership and can be learned through the methods of neuroleadership.
