Dr Jeanine Stewart of the Neuro Leadership Institute - SCARF

  POSTED ON: Monday, November 23, 2020 3:02 AM by The Stockdale Center

 This presentation is part of the 'Brain Science and Effective Leadership Series,' hosted by the Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership.

Dr. Jeanine Stewart of the Neuro-Leadership Institute recently delivered a virtual interactive presentation on the "SCARF" neuro-behavioral model (Status, Certainty, Autonomy, Relatedness, and Fairness) that explains the five major domains across which the human brain assesses stimuli as "good" or "bad."  The SCARF model assesses the differences in people's social motivation: some  are more sensitive to status threat and rewards, others to certainty and relatedness. Having SCARF needs satisfied drives engagement and retention in the workplace, which effective leaders can help to maximize.
