NeuroLeadership focuses on individuals in a social environment making decisions and solving problems, regulating their emotions, collaborating with and influencing others, and facilitating change; NeuroLeadership engages “people” and is emerging with developments in research technologies providing researchers with the ability to observe brain activity. During organisational change staff are unsure about their job security; this stress factor can have a negative effect on the organisation; it is important to manage stress as an important factor; it has to be addressed. By managing stress while providing a better work environment and support, effective leadership will provide support to staff to be able to perform more effectively. A quantitative research method included 12 organisations; key implications, recommendations and conclusions from the last sections.
