The Triplex Brain Leader

Leadership is Not a science, Neither a pure art. Leadership is an attitude!! Like all attitudes it consists of thoughts, emotions and behaviours in a sum greater than its parts. In this sense, modern leaders should be aware of three main aspects of the leadership attitude process: the Logical, the Psycho and the Complex. Leaders should synthesise this triplex in managing people, organizations and, of course, themselves! What about you?

Brain War: Who Wins the Battles Inside Your Head? (… it's not you!)

The biggest delusion of the human mind is the sense of a concrete self and the conviction that we have a single will. Not only that this is not true but it is a dangerous condition that leads to many of the personal, social and economic nightmares we face today. Especially in the last 20 years, with the advent of the digital age, our confidence in our understanding of the world and on human progress has been at an all-times high.

In order to really progress as species though we need to abolish this self-centric arrogance and to realize that our brains are more complex than we think. What we call "self" and "will" are products of competing neural networks which have different goals, processes and outcomes. Learn to spot those competing forces in your brain and in the brains of others, and become a more positive force in your workplace, your community and your society. Are you ready for this?!
