Manage the Social Brain and Resilience

Recently, neuroscience researchers have said there is evidence that the brain has a separate social intelligence system comprising several connected brain regions.

This includes generating positive emotions required for achieving personal goals and coping with the immediate situation.

Assuming this system works better in some brains than others, this may help explain variations in individual levels of resilience. This suggests that organisations which support managers and employees in developing these capacities will build resilience too.

This ‘social knowledge network’ involves how people think, feel and socialise, including being aware of oneself and expressing oneself, functioning interpersonally, managing and controlling emotions, making decisions and solving problems of a personal and interpersonal nature.
