Leadership Seen by Neuroscience


Jeremie Aboiron


In this essay, we will explain how neuroscience can be an effective tool for leaders to better manage their organizations through discovery of the human brain and how neurochemicals in the human body drive human behavior. Leadership is becoming more and more important in organizations and team management. Neuroscience can provide many insights into the various ways in which leaders can be more effective. The method used will initially be limited to a literature review. By better understanding the mechanics of neuroscience and how neurochemicals are produced in the body to affect our actions and thinking, individually, employees could use this to enable a boost in productivity. Employers can further use this biological knowledge to create a healthy culture within the organization by ensuring embedded company policies and lead in such a way that employees are happy with. Typically, this all comes back to how the organization is lead, an effective leader would know what is best for each employee and would stimulate this within the organization to balance each employee’s well-being. This essay is an opening to further research on the use of neuroscience in decision-making processes, identifying stressful situations and better preparing leaders to avoid being in a critical situation.
