Speech Title: The Brain on Business: Understanding how your brain helps you lead and perform as an executive.


This presentation will focus on the latest findings from neuroscientific research on how the human brain functions and the implication of those results on business performance in areas such as leadership, strategic thinking, ethical reasoning, talent development and leading change.  It was review some of the presenter's published articles in Harvard Business Review and a forthcoming article in the NeuroLeadership Journal as well as the ever expanding break-through research coming from neuroimaging  centers around the world.




Professor Gilkey holds a joint appointment at Emory University, where he serves on the faculty of the Goizueta Business School as a professor in the practice of organization and management, and the School of Medicine, where he is an associate professor of psychiatry. He is the recipient of the university's highest teaching honor, the Emory Williams Award. Rick also serves on the faculty of Duke Corporate Education.


Current research is in the area of neuro-imaging, which involves the use of MRI scanning technology to gain images of executives who are involved in strategic thinking, moral reasoning and creative problem solving. This research focuses on understanding how the brain operates in high level cognitive tasks of an executive population, and how to facilitate these types of learning and thinking.


Rick Gilkey's articles have appeared in several leading professional journals, and he has served as an editorial consultant to The New York Times and Fortune Magazine. Rick is co-author of a book on post-merger management entitled "Joining Forces: Creating and Managing Successful Mergers and Acquisitions", (Prentice-Hall), and he is a contributing author to "Organizations on the Couch: Psychoanalytic Approaches to Understanding Organizational Dynamics". He is also editor of "The 21st Century Healthcare Leader", and contributing author to a book on strategic corporate leadership entitled, The "Agile Organization", published by Jossey-Bass. His forthcoming book on "Executive Coaching", co-authored with Randall White, Ph.D., will be published by Aronson Press in the fall of 2002.
