- i4 Neuroleader Methodology
In the former Convent of Boadilla - Spain, we have been working with Silvia Damiano’s i4 Model, on Leadership and Team Development.
Yesterday, I wrote in this blog about Vulnerability (I prefer to use the Castilian term Humanity, because Vulnerability sounds like a weakness), as a combination of Courage (daring to show yourself as human), Guidance to others (Compassion), and Revaluation (Worthiness), according to the research by Professor Brene Brown.
The first step, in terms of understanding what gives us power in today’s world, is to transition from pure knowledge to the generation of ideas. Being a leader today goes beyond being a visionary person to become a creator.
Understanding how the brain works to really elicit and work with peoples talents. From being just courageous to learning to be human again (or vulnerable). From thinking we "know” to understanding that sometimes we have to admit that we do not know what is going to happen next and lastly from being comfortable with multi-directional feedback.
Integration to optimize Performance; Inspiration to foster collaboration; Imagination to develop Innovation and Intuition for Agility. has stated that the i4 Model came to her as a “Eureka” moment on a flight from Perth to Sydney, from the west to the east of Australia.
Particularly innovative is the analysis that Silvia Damiano makes of the brain with leadership behaviours, based on the classification done by the Amen Clinics, Prefrontal Cortex (attention, focus), Anterior Cingulate Gyrus (adaptability), Deep Limbic System (motivation), Basal Ganglia (integration of thought and emotion) and Temporal Lobes (emotional stability, long term memory ).
Intuition is no longer a taboo, but the integration of Head, Heart and Courage (brain, heart and gut).
