Evidence from neuroscience suggests that by changing the way they think, leaders can significantly improve how they engage with and motivate others, make better decisions, and improve personal and organizational performance. The ability of the brain to adapt and change is referred to as neuroplasticity, and it can be applied not only to individuals but also to organizations.

This program enables leaders to discover the impact of the brain on their ability to lead, and reveals how they can rewire their brain to become more effective. Participants will investigate their thinking approach, natural preferences and blindspots as leaders, and discover how to boost their thinking skills and leadership behavior. Finally, they will explore the power of visualization to inspire action, and determine how to maximize their leadership potential to induce organizational change and leave a powerful legacy.

By completing this program, leaders will foster a culture of learning within their organization, and discover how to put a structure and process in place to lay the groundwork for continuous skill development in a changing world to future-proof success.
