Tienes que trabajar muy duro para pensar con claridad y hacer las cosas sencillas. Pero merece la pena, porque una vez que lo logras puedes conseguir cualquier cosa.

What should HR professionals know about neuroscience? I keep being asked ‘what relevance does neuroscience have for HR?’ These clients have done a little reading, seen the more sensational media on ideas like mirror neurons and the Tarantula study and some of the claims about research into the human brain. There are lots of claims and a vast amount of research being done and the number of articles makes it hard for HR professionals to sift through what is relevant and what is not.

I believe the best way of thinking about neuroscience if you are in HR, is as research which can verify or discredit our assumptions and psychological theories about how people interact, make decisions and work effectively.

It’s important to have clear values in place from the start – ideally before you hire your first employee. These aren’t always easy to define, but it’s important to be creative and think long and hard about your principles before you begin the recruitment process.

Nflict in the matrix - the challenges of moving away from hierarchical structures. Kevan Hall is CEO of Global Integration, consultants and trainers in matrix management, virtual teams and global working. He is also the author of "Making the Matrix Work. " Many international organisations are moving away from a hierarchical structure to a matrix organisation, designed to improve work and processes that cut across the traditional vertical silos of function and geography.

Even those without a formal matrix structure are using virtual teams and cross functional working to become more “horizontally” connected.
