Transforming LEADERSHIP EFFECTIVENESS through neuroscience

The NeuroLeadership Institute is a leading global research organization and the pioneer of bringing neuroscience to leadership and performance. Our brain-based, process-focused and outcome-driven methodologies facilitate positive change.

Companies We’ve Worked With


Drive performance by lifting the quality of conversations.

Diversity & Inclusion

Move the needle on today’s diversity and inclusion challenges.

Leadership & Change

Facilitate positive change by improving thinking.

Our Approach

“Despite the tens of billions of dollars we pour into training-related books, attendance at inspirational speeches, workshops, conferences, and training sessions, the workplace today is as dysfunctional as ever. Organizations are filled with disengaged, dissatisfied employees who don’t trust their leaders, and those leaders, in turn, face shortened job tenures, career derailments, and dismissals.”

What Research Tells Us

Awareness alone does not deliver sustained behavioural change. Awareness, supported by practices that build habits, does

Slow is now fast. Humans do not multi-task; new behaviours are adopted one at a time, people learn in chunks and they learn more and better when there is time and space to reflect

Humans learn socially. We observe others, we share thinking with others and transfer skills to others. The more people involved in the learning process, the higher the adoption rate. Organisation-wide change requires scaled delivery

Learning happens in the moment when new information fits into existing knowledge and enables a person to make sense of the situation – the information that was presented facilitated insight

Change that sticks happens in organisations when

Leaders create systems that inspire, encourage and include

People feel safe to belong, learn, share, experiment and contribute in a social context as well as individually

Neuro-learning is a waltz; 1-2-3 concepts at a time; small chunks linked to specific practices; supported with reinforcement with time to pause and reflect
