"Using a wonderful combination of research, stories, case studies, and reflective activities, the authors give their readers the gift of a new understanding of leadership and provide them with the tools they need to bring new life and effectiveness to their role." - Pat Wolfe, Educational Consultant, Mind Matters, Inc, Minneapolis.Building on the principles of "Connecting Leadership to the Brain" (Michael H. Dickmann and Nancy Stanford-Blair, Corwin Press 2002), this latest work empowers leaders with the practical tools they need to immediately impact others' learning and achievement. The authors masterfully translate complex research about brain interactions into easy-to-read explanations and ready-to-use practices. Short stories and subsequent "reflection zones" throughout the book help us to examine what we know about leadership through our experiences, and offer compelling insights into enhancing leadership through the brain-based techniques provided.
Some unique features of this text include: integrated intuitive reflection exercises; tips for nurturing-and understanding the nature of-intelligence; definition of leadership within a historical context; and reasons and ways to make the leadership paradigm shift.
