Neuroscience of Leadership - Article List

Goals

To compile a list of 10 research and published articles about the neuroscience of leadership. The articles should be presented in a Chicago style bibliography with a brief summary of each. Resources should be from credible resources, which may include resources such as Harvard Business Review, McKinsey, Wharton, etc.

Early Findings

#1: COMPLEXITY SCIENCE, GENERATIVE LEADERSHIP, AND NEUROSCIENCE

  • Citation: Scott, Brice (2018) "Complexity Science, Generative Leadership, and Neuroscience: Foundations for Developing Socially Adept Educational Leaders," Wisdom in Education: Vol. 8 : Iss. 1, Article 3.
  • Summary: "This paper briefly discusses the role of neuroscience in social interactions; that is, highlighting the value of an integrative mind to an educational leader. This paper concludes with an implications section that advises empathy as a basis for educational leadership in today’s complex society."

#2: PULLING AT YOUR HEARTSTRINGS: EXAMINING FOUR LEADERSHIP APPROACHES FROM THE NEUROSCIENCE PERSPECTIVE

  • Citation: Wang, Yinying (2018) "Pulling at Your Heartstrings: Examining Four Leadership Approaches From the Neuroscience Perspective," Education Administration Quarterly: Vol. 55 : Iss. 2, pages 328-359.
  • Summary: "This review study aims to bridge neuroscience and educational leadership by exploring the neural mechanisms of the constructs relevant to educational leadership."

#3: HOW TO TAP INTO ABUNDANT LEADERSHIP

  • Citation: Dr. Swart, Tara. “How To Tap Into Abundant Leadership.” Forbes. Forbes Magazine, April 25, 2019.
  • Summary: Neuroscientist, Dr. Tara Swart, discusses findings and methods from her Brain Agility model, which is designed to help leaders draw on important aspects of thought in order to train themselves in their areas of weakness.
In addition to this public search, we scanned our proprietary research database of over 1 million sources and were unable to find any specific research reports that address your goals.

RESULTS OF INITIAL RESEARCH

  • There appears to be a sufficient amount of articles and publications available that address the intersection of neuroscience and leadership.
  • Many of the more in depth publications on the topic such as scholarly articles/journal publications and books appear to be paywalled. It seems that information that is publicly available for free tends to be more high level.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
We can compile a list of 10 pieces of research and/or published articles about the neuroscience of leadership. (The list of 10 will NOT include the three articles already uncovered during the initial research). For each article, we will include a Chicago style citation for the article, as well as a breif summary of the article. Resources will be from credible resources, which may include resources such as Harvard Business Review, McKinsey, Wharton, etc. ***For this option, we will ALLOW our team to include scholarly articles or other publications that are paywalled, such as examples 1 and 2 in the initial findings above.***
