"A timely book by Dr. Dimitriadis and Prof. Psychogios in this transformative moment, as the world sheds its old skin. Neuroscience for Leaders is a clarion call to business leaders and to the world's growing human-centered economy movement. The book offers insightful and practical approaches and frameworks necessary for leading a sustainable and meaningful socio-economic environment." * Siamak Z. Salimpour, Founder, Alchemy of Work *
"HR professionals worldwide are under pressure to upgrade their game by incorporating innovative methods and new ideas into their practices. At the same time, uncertainty and complexity being higher than ever have reinforced the belief that a strong focus on people is the only meaningful way forward for all companies, regardless of industry or location. Putting people at the very center of what you do requires a better understanding of what it means to be human, how we make decisions and what drives our behavior. Since neuroscience sheds a new light into human nature, this book is an important step towards this direction. Highly recommended." * Alexis Doukas, CEO, Optimal HR Group *
"With leadership remaining an ongoing challenge, this book finally sets the record straight that intelligence matters not least because it combines cognitive, emotional and intuitive dimensions." * Elena Antonacopoulou, Professor, GNOSIS, University of Liverpool Management School (about a previous edition) *
"I firmly believe that business results are the direct outcome of collective efforts, guided by a strong vision and even stronger leadership. However, until now the true nature of leadership was difficult to explain, regardless experiencing it daily. Dr Dimitriadis and Dr Psychogios have managed to untangle the mystery of effective leadership by revealing how the brain works in complex business environments. Read it, practise it and become a great leader!" * Maria Anargyrou-Nikolic, General Manager, Coca-Cola HBC Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina (about a previous edition) *
"There are many books on leadership - perhaps too many! However, this book is well worth reading. The authors have done a really great job in bringing together developments in neuroscience and thinking about leadership to produce a thought provoking view of leadership. They make the complex area of neuroscience very accessible and use this to produce a really helpful framework for thinking about leadership. The authors have achieved a fine balance between the rigour of their arguments and the practical applications of the framework that they have developed. Even if you have a lot of books on leadership on your shelves you should make room for this one." * Malcolm Higgs, Professor of Organization Behaviour and HRM, Southampton Business School, University of Southampton (about a previous edition) *
"Neuroscience is invading every scientific, economic and social aspect more and more. This book is the brilliant confirmation that understanding the mechanisms, processes and functions of the brain can help us solve problems, distinguish leaders from regular managers and uncover the right answers for generating growth." * Matteo Venerucci, Cognitive Psychologist and Brain Propaganda Founder (about a previous edition) *
"An amazing compendium that will certainly assist managers and professionals in advancing their leadership skills. The book deals with the subject of this interdisciplinary research to resolve complex problems while facing challenging environments. The authors have included numerous examples from a practical and holistic perspective in order to illustrate how to create common ground about our adaptive leadership and how to put into action our leadership brain capabilities by applying their proposed BAL model. It is a fascinating book which will change your life." * Panayiotis H Ketikidis BSc MSc PhD, Professor, University of Sheffield International Faculty, City College and Chairman of the South East European Research Centre (about a previous edition) *
