NeuroLeadership, NeuroManagement


Objective: NeuroManagement integrates principles from neuroscience into the realm of management and leadership.  It involves understanding how the human brain functions in decision-making, communication, motivation, and behavior within organizational contexts. This conceptual paper explores how Neuro-leadership will serve as a link between psychological theories and organizational neuroscience.

Materials and Methods: This conceptual paper explores how Neuro-leadership will serve as a link between psychological theories and organizational neuroscience. the purpose of the study has been to review the literature by means of systematic literature analysis. Google Scholar and PubMed search engines were used to review the studies. The keywords NeuroLeadership, NeuroManagement, organizational were used. 122 articles were found. Irrelevant articles, which included 64 articles, were removed and 58 related articles were reviewed and analyzed.

Discussion: Neuro Management serves as a vital bridge between scientific insights derived from neuroscience and the practical application of these insights in effective leadership. Future leaders are expected to be more responsive, flexible, and adaptive while accomplishing company targets. A new direction in leadership studies has arisen with the recent advances in brain research, which aims at finding a relationship between the changes in context and organizational transformation.

Conclusions: Neuro Management stands as a pivotal discipline reshaping modern leadership and organizational paradigms by leveraging insights from neuroscience. In a general sense, NeuroLeadership refers to the realization of neuroscience-based findings in institutions within effective leadership. Increasing studies on the subject and explanation of learning processes in light of their biological basis have produced evidence-based strategies for leaders to manage their teaching and management processes more effectively.
