"Applying neuroscience to leadership matters. Intelligence is our greatest strategic asset, yet we live and work profoundly out of sync with our own biology. The fundamental role of great leadership is to create places of work where the highest level of collective intelligence can emerge and flourish. If any one of your employees is not showing up to work with full brain/ body engagement, you are squandering your only true competitive advantage." - Janet Crawford
