Stacey Ashley explores the three brains of leadership in this week’s opinion piece.

    I'm in the rather fortunate position to be a professor of leadership with a PhD in cognitive neuroscience.

    In fact there is something known as embodied cognition (or somatic marker theory) which suggests that our whole body gets involved in decision-making, emotional feedback loops, etc. It's also true that the gut has a reasonably sophisticated independent nervous system (the enteric nervous system of about a million neurons). The heart is not really independent the way the gut is. It's a stretch to ascribe too much to either of those neural systems, but the advice here is sound, if the reasons just a little to the south side of true.

    Overall, a good read.

    Thanks for the input, Marc - it's great to hear the scientific argument for "trusting your gut".

    Is this somehow connected to I.Q. and E.Q.?
