The Neuroscience of Leadership

NeuroLeadership is an emerging field of study focused on bringing neuroscientific knowledge into the areas of leadership development, management training, change management, education, consulting and coaching.

The NeuroLeadership movement is intended to help individuals and organizations of all types fulfill their potential through better understanding how the human brain functions at individual, team and systemic levels.

Performance Leadership: A Brain-Based Approach to Driving Performance Through Coaching.

Performance leadership is designed for busy leaders and managers who want to significantly increase the effectiveness of their development conversations with others. Participants learn core coaching skills that move others quickly from impasse toward insight and motivated action, ultimately for the development of new habits.

Participants also learn how to apply coaching skills in everyday workplace scenarios such as solving problems and making decisions, giving everyday feedback, conducting performance reviews and running productive and engaging meetings.
