Neuroscience talks about two networks our brain switches between under different circumstances.
TPN (Task Positive Network) is activated when we are consciously engaged in an activity for example when working under pressure and trying to meet the deadline. Goal setting and accomplishing a task at hand are features of TPN.
DMN (Default Mode Network), like the name suggests is our “go to” mode when the mind isn’t actively involved. This is where the mind wanders as opposed to being focused in TPN. DMN is often linked to introspection, relationships, creativity and visualization.
Emotionally intelligent individuals know how to create a healthy balance between the two networks & function at an optimum level. It is a misconception that EQ is a weakness, in fact the ability to know when to focus on target completion & when to focus on relationships is a uniquely human trait often seen in Highly Successful Leaders.
This is what is truly required during such testing times from Leaders…Strike the Right Balance!!!!!!
