Change is pain

Here's an interesting piece about the Neuroscience of Leadership. It is particularly interesting because it does away with a lot of received wisdom in management literature. The salient points are:
  • Change is pain
  • Behaviourism doesn't work
  • Humanism is overrated
  • Focus is power
  • Expectation shapes reality
  • Attention density shapes identity
I am not sure that the authors' statement that the brain is a quantum environment really holds, though - an electron is certainly not an atom-sized entity. Nor do quantum effects usually apply in the "chemical" world.
