The IIM, working with Team Working International (TWI), is delighted to present the 2nd in our ‘Neuroscience series’ of 2020 webinars.
All too often we are promised tools and techniques that claim to improve our leadership with little understanding with how or why they work. Neuroscience answers the question: ‘Why should I lead like this and not like that?’
Understanding ‘why’ drives real behaviour change. It prevents misunderstanding and tales leadership to a whole new level. As leaders, people start to act and think differently and that change will stick. Research shows that adopting such a growth mindset can double productivity.
As interims, we need to be able to lead effectively from day 1 on any assignment, to be able to deliver the agreed client objectives. Being good at it is central to our success. It needs to be a strength that we all invest time in continually, throughout our careers as interim practitioners.
Neuroscience brings its focus on the brain and subsequent impact on behaviour and cognitive functions to bear in building a new perspective to obtaining a leadership competitive edge. A short video can be found here
The seminar will, once again, be conducted by Tom Flatau, CEO of TWI.
Tom is an international speaker whose clients include HSBC, Louis Vuitton, American Express, Siemens, Kier, Emirates and Unilever. He trained with the Neuro-Leadership Institute and is a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership & Management.
His first degree is in Information Systems with a Masters degree in Business Analysis & Systems Design. Tom’s academic career included posts at British and American Universities. He used this experience and his later managerial career to develop the logic+emotion™ training methods that are unique to TWI Ltd.
Tom’s work is based on understanding human instincts and behaviour, derived from up-to-the-minute research in the fields of neuroscience and positive psychology. He writes extensively on leadership and negotiation and delivers international conferences.
