- How do you make the right decisions, time after time, in the face of extreme challenges?
- How can you foster far-sighted leadership throughout your enterprise?
- How do you build the capacity to do better?
- What does it take to change the world?
For the better part of a decade, we’ve been researching these questions, drawing on insights from neuroscience, organizational learning, social psychology, and the study of ethical values. We published the results in The Wise Advocate: The Inner Voice of Strategic Leadership, by Art Kleiner, Jeffrey Schwartz, and Josie Thomson (available Jan 29, 2019 from Columbia University Press).
Jeffrey Schwartz is a research psychiatrist at UCLA School of Medicine and a leading expert on neuroplasticity. His many books include Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior (1997) and You Are Not Your Brain: The 4-Step Solution for Changing Bad Habits, Ending Unhealthy Thinking, and Taking Control of Your Life (2011, with Rebecca Gladding).
Josie Thomson is an award-winning executive coach, speaker, author, and two-time cancer survivor. She is the author of Enliven-U: A Little Book of Inspirations.
Susan Mackie is a leader in the areas of innovation, creativity, design-thinking, and applied neuro and cognitive sciences. She is a collaborator with Stanford University professor Carol Dweck on the development of insight and practice related to the growth mindset.
