Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


Recent advances in neuroscience have allowed a better understanding of the phenomenon of leadership and its development. In particular, social and affective neuroscience have developed new neuroscientific methods and techniques that allow a more in-depth understanding of the implicit and explicit cognitive and emotional mechanisms characterizing different leadership styles, opening the field to new models such as that of "inspirational" and "generative" leadership. Therefore, the tools of neuroscience make it possible to analyze various phenomena underlying the style of leadership within the company context, such as the emotional expression, the types of communication, and interpersonal relational skills. In particular, a recent neuroscience paradigm, the "hyperscanning", has allowed analyzing the mechanisms of the body and brain synthonization between leader and employee during real interactional situations to better direct and develop excellent and functional styles of leadership.
