It seems like every week there are significant discoveries about how the brain works and the impact that has on individual behavior.  These learnings will have a profound impact on managing as we learn more and more about how people respond to situations, stimulus and emotions.  Even more importantly, we may learn how little our management style impacts behavior and how much of how people act and react is hard-wired from the brain.  I think the knowledge that we will gain from brain research will have the most profound impact on management of any factor over the next 10 years.
