Neuroscience for lawyers and leaders

Stephanie, our lawyer-blog­ger friend, alert­ed us of 2 great arti­cles co-authored by her and Dr. Jef­frey M. Schwartz, a research psy­chi­a­trist at the School of Med­i­cine at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia at Los Ange­les and one of the world’s lead­ing experts in neuroplasticity.
We high­ly rec­om­mend them for lawyers, busi­ness pro­fes­sion­als, and lead­ers in general.
I. A Blue­print For Self-lead­er­ship (or “Lead Your Brain Instead Of Let­ting It Lead You”)
“For years, top ath­letes like Tiger Woods, Jack Nick­laus and many oth­ers have been using neu­ro­sci­en­tif­ic tech­niques to fuel their excel­lence. By draw­ing on five prin­ci­ples of neu­ro­science, you can become a bet­ter leader of your­self and others”
By Stephanie West Allen and Jef­frey M. Schwartz

II. Law Stu­dents: Cre­ate A Well-round­ed Life

Each stu­dent has a choice between acqui­esc­ing to the brain changes caused by law school or co-author­ing the alter­ations. To fos­ter a full, well-round­ed life, it’s just as impor­tant to exer­cise your non-lawyer synaps­es as the ones you etched in law school” By Stephanie West Allen and Jef­frey M. Schwartz
