Each year, NLI convenes scientists and business leaders for the NeuroLeadership Summit. The goal is simple: cultivate insights. We want as many people as possible going back to their organizations with new ideas for how to tackle their most vexing challenges.

This year is no different. So we’ve assembled a deep bench of leading researchers to share what they’ve been learning — in matters of teamwork, learning, motivation, and more. For 2019, we’re focusing on the human. We want to know what makes an organization more human, and which insights from science can help leaders bring more humanity into their own organizations. (No spoilers, but growth mindset, inclusion, and habit formation are three topics to keep an eye on.)

For instance, we’ve done a lot of research in the last year at NLI looking at things like the relationship between social learning and effective learning. What we’re finding is that organizations can become more human (and more effective) when they design learning programs that get people interacting with one another.

Another key theme is inclusion. In the abstract, just about every leader would say inclusion is a worthwhile goal. But what does it actually look like to include people? Research suggests it comes down to matters of helping people to find their voice and speak up. It also involves knowing when to leave people off meeting rosters and projects, so they can focus on other things.
