Better Communication Through Neuroscience

The Wharton School of Business, through a collaboration between Wharton Executive Education and Wharton’s Center for Leadership and Change Management — have developed a series of fast, effective leadership tools that you can learn and start using in less than 15 minutes, with the potential to significantly impact your success as a leader and the engagement and productivity of the people you lead. They call these Nano Tools for Leaders.

I am highlighting one of the more recently released Nano Tool is a tool for getting your message gets across by fine-tuning your communications. This tool uses neuroscience research to hone one’s message to ensure greater reception.

“Real-world, face-to-face communication — complete with eye contact, body language, and other important sources of information — is a rarity in business today, and the potential for failing to convey an intended message or giving the wrong impression has grown. Neuroscience research has uncovered specific ways that you can fine-tune your message — whether it’s giving performance feedback, persuading your team to embrace a change initiative, or selling a product or service — to make sure others listen, attend to the message, and act on it.”
