► About Neuroscience ◄

We work with leading organizations across industries including technology, financial services, government, professional services and health care

The NeuroLeadership Institute is a leading global research organisation and the pioneer of bringing neuroscience to leadership in the business context. Since its inception, 24 years ago, the Institute has united the world’s foremost neuroscientists, leadership researchers, and organisational practitioners with the purpose of transforming how we think, develop, and perform.

Neuroscience research explains dilemmas that have, until recently, perplexed leaders of organisations, consultants and researchers. Dilemmas such as – why leadership development programmes often disappoint, why change initiatives continue to fail, why performance management does not lead to better performance and why experienced leaders, with honest intentions, continue to make biased decisions.

Current complexity defies conventional logic.  Our clients work with us because we understand why conventional wisdom does not address some of the critical concerns leaders think about most: performance, culture and adaptability.

Our clients imagine different futures, create workplaces where people are inspired to perform and experience change as a business adventure.
