Why the Brain Follows

The lack of control and predictability has become the new norm. During the pandemic, so many leaders have been leading without knowing Why People Follow.

The pandemic has changed the landscape of the leadership development industry. Leaders at all levels look for guidance, but have found little. The leadership development industry failed to prepare leaders for crises like the pandemic because of its dependence on personal experience, anecdotal evidence, and personalities.
