What happens in the brain as we develop our and others' leadership? And what does that tell us about how we best develop leadership in ourselves and others? David Rock and Jeffrey Schwartz's work on the Neuroscience of Leadership helps us re-think leadership training & development. Their 'attention' centred learning model - summed up as ARIA (Attention, Reflection, Insight, Action), with its focus on small doses of learning to supplement the HR department's usual offerings, and to help make the absorption and putting into practice of conference learning (only about 15% of conference learning is ever retained or put into practice) more effective, helped shape The Hub. One of the uses of an in-house Hub, for example, is as a community platform for people who have been through a course, workshop, program, initiative, conference or retreat, and need an ongoing network of people who have been through the same experience to help them retain, remember and reflect on what they've learnt, and to put those ideas into practice. Here's the link to Schwartz and Rock's 2006 article in Strategy+Business magazine, in case you missed it, or want a refresher: The Neuroscience of Leadership

If you voted in the World Leadership Gurus Top 30, the Hub's founder, Phil Dourado, came 14th this year (2012), up three places from 17th last year. The organisers say it is "because of the originality and impact of your work" that Phil was put in the Top 30 in the first place. And that means this Hub and the award-winning corporate versions we run for large companies. For more on how a private corporate version of The Hub works, email: email@example.com
