This weeks’ theme is neuroscience, and its application to coaching styles, HR practice, and social intelligence. The article that challenges the ‘left or right brained personality’ concept might cause a bit of a stir – let us know your thoughts!
We’ve also included the well known short video of Jill Bolte Taylor’s story on her experience of having a stroke, and – being a neurosurgeon – her ability to analyse exactly what happened to her – an incredible story, also available as a book if you’re interested. Enjoy!
