Leadership research and cognitive neuroscience: The state of this union
The Leadership Quarterly

Advances in cognitive neuroscience and other approaches to understanding human behavior from a biological standpoint are only now beginning to filter into leadership research. The purpose of this introduction to the Leadership Quarterly Special Issue on the Biology of Leadership is to outline the organizational cognitive neuroscience approach to leadership research and show how such an approach can fruitfully inform both leadership and neuroscientific research. Indeed we advance the view that the further application of cognitive neuroscientific techniques to leadership research will pay great dividends in our understanding of effective leadership behaviors and as such a future symbiosis between the two fields is a necessity.
