Can We Build Nurturing Leadership Models?

Ori Brafman, Author

Author Ori Brafman presents the question of whether it’s possible to build more nurturing leadership models that function through trust-based networks. Brafman relates how the US Army is trying to tackle this issue, in light of so many service personnel struggling with the combat fatigue of the past decade. Brafman discusses the biology of the fight or flight mechanism and explains how the chemicals cortisol and oxytocin play a role in building connections.
