Your Brain Tells Plenty about Your Management Skills.
Coulson, Louis T.; Strickland, Alison G.
Executive Educator, v5 n7 p22-23,27 Jul 1983
Comparison of the thinking styles of 21 corporate chief executive officers (CEO's) and 23 school superintendents from across the United States reveals CEO's as right-brain oriented (innovative, intuitive), and superintendents as left-brain oriented (logical, rational). Author suggests both groups strive for "whole-brained thinking," balancing both orientations. (JBM)
