Publisher: About my Brain
There have always been many expectations and pressures on leaders at the top. However, in her book, Leadership is Upside Down, Damiano looks at leadership through a new lense by turning the pyramid upside down and encouraging everybody to embrace their own leadership. She presents a range of useful tools, grounded solidly in neuroscience, to help readers unlock their potential and create their own personal leadership style by increasing self-awareness and understanding the relationship between a brain that functions at its best and leadership effectiveness. In Leadership is Upside Down, Damiano also details the “i4 Neuroleadership Model”, which is based on four key competencies (performance, collaboration, innovation and agility) with sixteen underpinning pillars. She says this set of capabilities can unlock anyone’s potential to succeed as a leader in any endeavour. The premise of this approach is that, regardless of position or title, readers are able to inspire, motivate and empower others to excel and create a more positive, engaged and productive culture that meets the demands of the new ‘era of work’.
