GSB Webinar “Inside the Wise Leader’s Brain: the Neuroscience of Leadership”, 27 October 2020

GSB Webinar “Inside the Wise Leader’s Brain: the Neuroscience of Leadership”, 27 October 2020

On October 27 from 17.00 to 18.30 (Moscow time), Peter Verhezen will give a webinar at GSB on the Neuroscience of Leadership. To join the webinar register here.

Webinar Highlights

In this talkPeter Verhezen will present a business perspective on how a leader’s decision can improve the performance of an organization over a sustained period. This will likely require a more holistic and inclusive strategic view that creates value for both shareholders as well as customers, employees and the community at large. As a professional in corporate governance and risk management, he will indicate how ”wiser” decision making could improve the organizational performance (that implies non financials such as ESG as well as a fair return on investment). Prof. Dr. Peter Verhezen will discuss his latest research findings in the neuroscience of leadership, and how in turbulant and uncertain times, human intelligence and creativity (which logically should result in „wiser decisions“) is still superior to machine learning (artificial intelligence).
