Social, Sleep and Learning: Update from the 2013 NeuroLeadership Summit

Herrmann International’s CEO Ann Herrman-Nehdi filed a video report from this year’s NeuroLeadership Summit, where she was also a presenter.

Some highlights:

Matt Lieberman’s new book “Social” explores the impact of the social brain on everything we do. Key lessons for learning and development professionals:

  • When someone is learning to teach versus learning to memorize, it engages the brain in a way that is much more effective in terms of long-term retention. Consider this when designing learning experiences.
  • The discussion about the tension between the analytical brain and the social brain is substantiated by our HBDI® data. It’s rare to see both in play, and important for us to understand how to help leaders activate the social part of who they are.

Jessica Payne’s research on leadership stamina reinforces how important sleep is. If you feel sleep deprived, get 20 minutes more a day – go to bed earlier, sleep later or take a power nap if necessary to improve what you can get out of your brain.

Tony Bingham, President of ASTD, says that 70% of learning in today’s organizations is informal. What are you doing to build in more tools and opportunities for informal learning?
