The Neuroscience of Learning and Leading




As educators and leaders, we should be concerned about the following trends:

  • A 40 percent drop in empathy in college students measured by standard tests of personality trait
  • A skills deficit in the empathetic arts – eye contact, listening and attending to others
  • A drop-in attention spans down from 12 seconds to 8 seconds (less than a goldfish)
  • Rising rates of digital dementia linked to heavy digital use and its impact on attention and cognitive abilities
  • Our obsession with multi-tasking and its impacts on productivity
  • Increasing rates of stress and psychological distress in students, higher in girls
  • The rising levels of poor sleep hygiene
  • A crisis of solitude – people are uncomfortable left alone with their thoughts for as little as six minutes and yet we know a quiet brain is necessary for insight and creativity
  • Prevalence of fixed mindsets and its relationship with school dropout and underperformance

Why do the best leaders and educators lead and educate with the brain in mind? Because they know when it comes to influencing, educating, engaging and motivating others, what’s happening in the brain makes all the difference. Neuroscience is unlocking secrets to what really matters when leading and educating others, but more importantly WHY it matters. The knowledge in this Masterclass will help you to understand the devastating consequences to the above trends and what you can do to change this.
