12 Brain Scans

13 The Gender Scale Male Female

14 Equal but different Brain differences are universal Over 100 Biological differences between male/female brains Women have more white matter/men more grey (white connects, grey localises) 15/20% more blood flow in womens brains (multi- tasking) Mens brains shut down/womens do not Female occipital and parietal lobes are more active in women (affects communication) Male temporal lobe is less active (hearing and translating) Testosterone surges in utero create spatial mechanical centres in male brains. Females remain verbal/emotive

15 Human evolution… has created two different types of brains (male and female) designed for equally intelligent behaviour. – Richard Haier, Professor of Pyschology, UC Irvine

16 Male/female brain activity leads to specific leadership style differences Women: more inductive in problem solving i.e. listening to others viewpoints Men: more deductive i.e. more risk-taking and relying on linear data and proof Hence the clear benefit in womens leadership development

33 Goals and Goal Maps (mind- mapping)

34 Go-getting your future & remaining balanced

35 How often do I try to seek a solution from a different angle, using my intuition and creativity as well as logic?

36 Genius Until one is committed there is the chance to draw back; always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would not otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man would have dreamed would come his way. W.H. Murray Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it! Boldness has genius, magic and power in it. Begin it now! Goethe

37 Saw analysis & time (choice management)
