"MapQuest" the Emotional Geography of Your Board


The relationship between reason and emotion can have significant implications for how a school board governs. This is because emotions serve as shortcuts to deeper decision-making and judgment. When the information received is incomplete, intuition rather than intellect often guides a board member's responses. Brain research has taught us that human emotions are inseparable from human thought.
