Rob Davies from Cirrus writes for HR magazine
Neuroscience is a subject many organisations are wary of discussing, despite many using its techniques and ideas. In an article in HR magazine, Rob Davies from Cirrus comments alongside other experts on the role of neuroscience in leadership and learning in today’s organisations.
It is a diverse field covering, to name a few areas, the study of brain development, learning and memory, the senses, sleep and stress.Now there are signs it is moving beyond the realm of science and psychology, having an impact in real-world applications, including that of business and leadership.
A number of companies are already using the theories of neuroscience, sometimes as part of a leadership development programme. Experts claim there are real implications for how HR approaches learning and development programmes, with a greater emphasis on collaborative learning. “Neuroscience increases our awareness of insight and intuition because it helps us understand what kind of thinking enables and inhibits effective collaboration and idea generation,” says Rob Davies from Cirrus, which has used the technique with clients including Network Rail. “When people learn together, collaboration enhances the learning experience and social interaction can generate innovative ideas.”
