SCARF: a brain based model for collaborating with and influencing others
What is it?
World leader in the field of neuroleadership, David Rock, explains his model and its many applications in the workplace. The work is based on the core principle that our brains create a Reward or Threat State when we engage with others.
SCARF’s application in leadership development is significant. I use it in leadership development with supervisors at every level. Its application never fails to stimulate awareness in the mind of the learner, which they can apply immediately back in the workplace.
Bill George, Peter Sims, Andrew N. McLean & Diana Mayer
Bill George is the creator of the world leading True North concept, which is applied throughout Leadership development. In this article, the elements of True North are discussed, intersecting emotional intelligence and authentic leadership.
Read from the creator of the True North concept himself. This is a 'must' inclusion in leadership development, as it provides a facilitated review of one’s life journey, challenging the learner to come to terms with the events which have shaped them and their leadership style. Its application elicits strong emotional responses in learners and must be applied carefully.
The definitive article that introduced Neuroleadership to a wider audience. It stitched together previously disparate strands of emotions, brain function, leadership impact, change and effective collaboration.
This is not bedtime reading. It is written for an academic audience but remains accessible. Ringleb and Rock lay out the case for why and how the brain impacts on leadership across a range of domains. You need this article as a foundation stone in your understanding of neuroleadership
Motivation revamped: A summary of Daniel H. Pink’s new theory of what motivates us
What is it?
A snappy summary of the best-selling work by Daniel Pink “Drive”, originally published in 2009. The article does a great job of condensing a 200+ page book into a 5 minute read. It explores the theory of extrinsic and intrinsic motivation and why rewards are so often not effective. The article and the book also provides positive guidance on what works and how to apply.
Read the article to see if the book is of interest. ‘Drive’ might just change the way you think about rewards and motivation. Based on their referencing of this work, maybe get in contact with Checkside in Perth if you need help in this area.
