Power


See POWER as a block to empathy.



Power really DOES corrupt the mind: The brain activity of CEOs changes as they climb the career ladder and causes them to lose the ability to empathise
Researchers have found that CEOs and other leaders may suffer damage to their brain as a result of their rise to power (stock image)
  • "Neuroscientists measured the brain activity in people who felt powerful 
  • Parts of the brain that deal with empathy were less responsive in people in power
  • Prolonged feelings of power lead to permanent damage to this part of the brain
  • The study did not look at exactly why power changes the way the brain works"
