  • Thomas B: A home run by Dr. Tara Swart and MIT. Practical, highly applicable and enthusiastically presented material that all leaders need. Stuff that's as important as understanding a P/L statement, maybe even moreso.

  • John S: As a prior participant in Neuroscience for Leadership, I found the both the content and the collaborative presentation methodologies used by Professor Swart to be very effective and extremely useful. I am late writing this do to work demands- however since the course, I have used critical pieces of the learned information almost daily and expect to continue to do so. Many thanks!

All research examples and case studies are very helpful to understand the concepts. The program is based on practical approach and Tara Swart did an excellent job of keeping the group involved, keeping the excitement up and the whole course moving forward.

  • Ayub M: i wish the program digged deeper . Thought it was very superficial . i could have got the take aways by just reading the book by Tara ( which i do believe is a great book ) Felt i did not learn anything incrementally new after attending the neuroscience and leadership program .

  • Toronata T: Wish to have more neuroscience tool and application in discussing the business topics such as risk, gender, diversity, financial, decision making etc. Wish to have more reading material than just 1 face amygdala journal prior to the class. Wish to have more pictures in the ppt instead of bullet point (to apply neuroscience principal in communication). Did not particularly agree in generalizing a personal example of not wearing reading glass because of neuroplasticity techniques applied in her personal story - Lack of Samples. Wish to have class being guided to share their specific neuroscience questions or insight because some of the class members are CEO and doctors and neurologist for examples.

  • Edward Group I: The course did not provide useful takeaway info. Did not cover the affects and variables that sugar, msg, metals, aspartame, environmental excitotoxins, emf, lighting, have on the brain. Also the exercises were not beneficial. Info was outdated. I would not recommend this course.
