After having gained the ground of the personal development and the education, the neurosciences take hold today of the management. At the Solution Human Resources exhibition, held from 19 to 21 March in Paris, no less than five conferences mobilized this discipline. Advances in research have put neuroscience in the limelight. The first workshop around cognitive intelligence, "how to boost its adaptive intelligence," has also sold out.

It must be said that the speaker of this conference, Pierre Moorkens, co-founder of the Institute of NeuroCognitivism, knows how to be convincing: "Twenty or thirty years ago, we did not know what was going on in the brain, he argues. Today, neuroscience makes it possible to go much further in understanding how it works ".

The promise is enticing: it would be possible to shape our brain at will and optimize its performance, whether in terms of intelligence, memory or management of emotions. This is based on the most recent scientific discoveries, which make it possible to map the functioning of the brain more precisely.

Researchers have long focused on the left and right hemispheres. But the latest scientific breakthroughs have revealed that the brain is actually ruled by four different drivers, including the reptilian for acquired intelligence and the prefrontal neocortex for adaptive intelligence. " The first makes decisions quickly, while the second serves to qualify and accept events "Says Pierre Moorkens.

Manage complexity

Recent research on brain function has shown that stress is caused by the conflict between these two areas. " The reptilian does not know how to manage the complexity, whereas if I develop my adaptive intelligence, if I am curious … I learn to relativize, supports the co-founder of the Institute of NeuroCognitivism. Faced with a colleague is always late, we can get upset, but also adapt to this situation: if I decide to start the meeting at 9 am, whatever happens, it will encourage him to come sooner the next time ! According to Pierre Moorkens, Air Force fighter pilots who have been trained to develop their adaptive intelligence in stress situations have managed to improve their performance by 700%.
