Leveraging Neuroscience to Power Organizational and Individual Performance

Understanding how the mind works can help us explain why some leadership styles are more effective than others. In the area of talent development as well as more broad business functions where there are teams and reporting structures, neuroscience can help bring to light questions such as why certain feedback, incentives, or threats motivate some people and discourage others.

Leveraging Neuroscience to Power Organizational and Individual Performance brings the latest research on neuroscience, considering implications for learning on both the individual and organizational levels particularly relevant for talent development officers and those who are charged with attracting and retaining top talent.

This three-day program focuses on neuroleadership: the application of discoveries in neuroscience on leadership development and management training. Questions about creating a culture of learning within your organization will be addressed, with specific relevance to talent and development. The research-backed approach of this program is designed to help participants understand and improve the way we think about, process, and execute leadership styles.

Program participants examine how the program learnings can help improve organizational performance – with immediate application for your own role. In the Individual Case Project, participants bring an organizational challenge they are currently facing to the program and, with the help of coaches and peers, develop an action plan on for their return.

Each year, a different key note speaker from the university speaks at the program. In 2016, the keynote speakers are Michael Shadlen, professor of neuroscience at Columbia University, and Chris Washburne, associate professor of music at Columbia University. Their joint session, entitled "Jazz and the Neuroscience of Decision Making: Exploration, Creativity, Communication, and Resolution," will feature live jazz music followed by a lively discussion on the relationship between jazz, neuroscience, and leadership.

Also new to the fall 2016 session is Modupe Akinola, Columbia Business School faculty and expert on how organizational environments can engender stress and how this stress can have spill-over effects on performance. Likewise confirmed for the fall iteration is Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson, associate director of the Motivation Science Center at Columbia University, who researches, writes, and speaks about the science of motivation.
