Developing great leadership skills includes learning and practicing biologically-based behaviors.
When it comes to changing the behaviors that can hold you back as a leader, it takes more than just learning new information. Amanda Blake, Richard Strozzi-Heckler and Staci K. Haines of the Strozzi Institute explore what science reveals about the importance of “social, emotional and biological learning,” and offer practical examples of “feeling, centering,” and “presence” in action to illustrate how a biologically-based “somatic” approach can help create better leaders. getAbstract recommends this report to those interested in leadership development techniques.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why “intellectual learning” isn’t sufficient for leadership development,
- What science reveals about how human minds interact with their “intelligent” bodies, and
- How training in “feeling, centering” and “presence” enables better leadership.
