You’re Wired to Be a Leader

Research tells us that there are seven brain attributes—thinking and behavioral tendencies—every leader naturally takes advantage of to a greater or lesser extent, and finds they’re effective to a greater or lesser extent depending on the traits of the individuals they interact with. These neural pathways are etched in the brain over many years:

  1. Analytical thinking happens in the left hemisphere of the brain
  2. Structural thinking also takes place in the left part of the brain
  3. Social thinking is a right-brain tendency
  4. Conceptual thinking is right-brain, visionary thinking that jumpstarts innovation
  5. Expressiveness is a behavior style you use to communicate your ideas
  6. Assertiveness is a behavior style you use to put your ideas to work
  7. Flexibility is a behavior style you bring to the way you get things done
