What Neuroscience Can Teach Leaders 3

1.  The division between thoughts and feelings is in fact an artificial one. From a brain standpoint they are  indistinguishable (Phelps). The best ways to understand what you are thinking and feeling is to make time to reflect upon them, (Ochsner et al) and use language to label them (Lieberman et al). This means you will need a trusted advisor who will listen to you, e.g.: get a coach if you don’t already have one.

 2.  Habits are driven by the unconscious.  Some are useful, some are not.  It serves you well to notice your habits, examine each one and choose whether or not you want to allow it to continue (Rock).
