Brains Inspiring Businesses for Leaders and Executives
Brains Inspiring Businesses for Leaders and Executives is written by a group of experienced coaches associated with ION Consulting, people who Dr Paul Brown has gathered together in the course of his career as an acclaimed professor of Applied Neuroscience and the main architect of the professional development programme for coaches, The Science of the Art of Coaching, delivered over 12 seasons.
The chapters are distinct, bringing the various authors' personal insights and experiences to the surface. All hold to the central thinking around the power of emotions and energy and their critical roles in our decision-making and approach to managing relationships and work culture.
The book references Dr Brown’s ‘London Protocol of the Emotions’ framework, which links the core ‘primary’ emotions of Sadness, Shame, Disgust, Anger, Fear, Surprise/Startle, Excitement/Joy and Love/Trust to the six emotional reaction Fs: Faint, Freeze, Fight, Flight, Frolic and Faith, and the allied roles of the neurochemicals cortisol, noradrenaline, dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin in that framework.
The thirteen authors, all of whom have either been on Dr Brown's six-month brain-based continuing professional development programme The Science of the Art of Coaching, or have published with him give passionate accounts of the value of what they have discovered in their corporate and individual consulting work, using the brain-based knowledge that they have.
