MHS presented “Innovative Leadership and Brain Science: Introducing The SCARF Model” on April 26, 2022. The webinar was presented by Dr. Dino Signore, President of The Signore Group Inc. Brain science has become a hot topic in business over the last few years. New insights into how our brains work are being directly applied by innovative leaders and managers to improve performance, engagement, and gain a competitive advantage. This session explored brain basics, the residue from management 1.0 and the challenge of keeping people engaged and productive.
Dr. Signore explored the history of management and its evolution into its current state today. Techniques that were developed over a century ago, such as pay for performance, departments, and employee evaluations, are still being utilized in today’s workplace. As work has transitioned from assembly lines to offices, how do we transition those techniques to match the modern business environment.
According to gallop data, 70% of U.S. workers are not engaged at work. This lack of engagement can have a major impact on company productivity, culture, and actively cost organizations money. A key to improvement in engagement is understanding how individuals interpret different situations as either stress increasers or reducers. This can be achieved by understanding brain science through the SCARF model.
The SCARF model looks at five different areas (Status, Certainty, Autonomy, Relatedness, and Fairness) and looks to help leaders identify and reduce social stressors. These reductions can help team members make informed decisions and think creatively within their organization.
