NEW FOR 2014

Brain research is leading us to a greater understanding of how to improve personal and leadership behaviors and performance. Those who grasp the meaning and implications of this research will be positioned to take competitive advantage. This program will provide hands-on application of concepts and techniques deriving from brain research and psychology that can improve your individual performance, as well as that of your team and organization.  


Neuroscience for Leadership focuses on:

  • Your agility and resilience as a leader
  • Your impact on others and in promoting diversity of thought in your teams
  • Creating the conditions for success in your organization by leading teams and shifting the culture from a fixed mindset towards a growth mindset, within an atmosphere of trust
  • Innovating into the future

Issues we will examine include:

  • The “Mind-Brain-Relationships Triangle” (Meta Cognition: thinking about thinking)
  • Understanding the Scope of Neuroplasticity in Adult Brains (are leaders born or can they developed?)
  • Mindsets (can you move from fixed to growth?)
  • Neurophysiology and embodied leadership
  • Contagion of Stress and basic human emotions
  • Reinforcing simple, pragmatic messages based on neuroscience
