What is Brain-Friendly Leadership?

In our last blog, we explored what a ‘brain-friendly’ election campaign might look like. This generated some interesting commentary around the use of the term ‘brain-friendly’ and a question about what this term means?

At NeuroCapability, we use the term ‘brain-friendly’ to describe practices and approaches where attention is consciously paid to the key organising principle of the brain (ie: to minimise threat and maximise reward).

Leaders who adopt brain-friendly practices and approaches understand the importance of managing threat and reward responses for self and in their interactions with others.
