  • 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.

  • Brian B: Dr. Swart provided us with valuable insights based on in-depth research and contemporary practices in neuroscience. The material and exercises allowed me to learn new information regarding brain physiology, brain chemistry and the effects on team dynamics and organizations. This program helped me understand things I can do personally to help my organization improve through "brain gain". I highly recommend this program for anyone interested in understanding how the brain is an asset in managing and developing people and organizations. Regards, Brian Barnes
