Building on principles introduced in their groundbreaking book Connecting Leadership to the Brain, this latest work empowers leaders with the practical tools they need to immediately impact others' learning and achievement. The authors present a broad repertoire of highly practical "how to" strategies and practices for building capacity and achieving results in a learning organization.
Unique features of this text include:
- Integrated intuitive reflection exercises
- Definition of leadership within the context of the 21st century
- Practical tips for understanding—and nurturing—the nature of intelligence
- A repertoire of 15 leadership strategies and 101 aligned practices

Short stories and subsequent "reflection zones" throughout the book help us to examine what we know about leadership through our experiences, and offer compelling insights into enhancing leadership through the brain-based techniques provided.
