Pilots and doctors are tested for competence, why not leaders too?
While we have long had the academic study of leadership, this has not yet led to an ability to objectively measure or predict who could be a good leader. Instead we have a plethora of leadership theories such as the 'great man' theory (leaders are born not made), 'trait theory' (leaders have certain qualities) and 'transformational leadership theory' (leaders are able to inspire followers).

This is about to change. A new field, called "NeuroLeadership" allows us to objectively test who we put in charge as thoroughly as we test doctors and pilots. Meet the man who coined this term at this special presentation brought to you in partnership with SBODN, The Silicon Valley Coach Federation and the Future Forum.

The ability to intentionally address the social brain in the service of optimal performance will be a distinguishing leadership capability in the years ahead. Discover strategies to more effectively engage your employees' best talents while supporting collaborative teams and creating an environment that fosters productive change.
