Drawing on insights from evolutionary psychology and modern neuroscience, this paper highlights propositions about human nature that have far reaching consequences, when applied to leadership. We specifically examine the main factors of human survival and extend them to a model for leadership in the 21st century. The discussion concludes with an outlook on the organizational and structural condition that would allow for better and more balanced leadership.
