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 cognitive neuroscience 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 be 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

Are Leaders Born or Made?
Dr. Tara Swart is at the forefront of the application of neuroscience in business. In this podcast, she discusses the importance of neuroscience in business today, how it can benefit companies, and its application in developing the current and next generation of leaders.

How to Train Your Brain
In this blog post, Tara Swart writes, "If you want to train your brain to hone and prioritize your leadership skills then choose one to two desired behaviors at a time. Raise your awareness of when you do and do not do them. Deliberately and repeatedly practice these behaviors until they become a habit, and then move on to the next two skills."
