Change Leadership: Why Your Head, Heart And Gut Are Critical To Listen To

(Brian Gorman, Forbes Coaches Council)

When was the last time you listened to all three brains?
Neuroscience now tells us that we each have three brains. The one we most often think about and pay attention to is the “head” or cephalic brain. We also have a heart (cardiac) and a gut (enteric) brain. Each has sensory neurons, motor neurons, ganglia, and neurotransmitters. They are able to take in information, process it, store it and access it when needed. They are all true brains!

Flights from the Brain: Why People Gain Joy from Agile Collaboration

(Erica Jacoby, LC Global)

I recently had the honor of attending the 175th Anniversary celebration of Miss Porter’s School, where a high caliber panel of neuroscientists discussed how the mind construes meaning from the arts and ultimately gains joy from the process.

– Leaders get blindsided by unknowns, with no clear way to overcome obstacles without creating more problems or becoming part of the problem.
– The system gets disrupted, harming people, relationships, and initiatives.
– The change doesn’t get adopted as conceived, with financial and personal fallout.
As change agents, the models we use to address these issues have met with limited success. Is it possible that our approach is causing some of the problems?

Managing change remotely

(Wayne Turmel, The Remote Leadership Institute)

Managing change is a key skill for any leader. Whether it’s a small change in the scope of a project or your entire company being folded into a new organization, keeping our teams focused and productive is one of the most important things leaders do. It’s not easy. It’s even harder when we’re scattered across time zones, oceans and departments. How do we effectively lead change in remote teams?
