Neuroscience, leadership, and innovation

In the latest blog for the Ivey International Centre for Health Innovation, Western University grad Tracy Robinson discusses how neuroscience changes thinking about innovation and leadership in organizations.

“Leaders have to adapt to increasingly complex change environments. They are essentially ‘the brains’ of the operation,” Robinson writes. “Since no environment is more complex than the human brain, it can be productive to demonstrate how brain activity can help to confirm and inform the theoretical constructs about innovation in a community.”
