The role of leaders have changed irrevocably from the old "command-and-control" autocrats to that of skilled facilitators who are able to motivate, collaborate and engage people for optimum results. Neuroleadership infuses the latest findings from neuroscientific research and positive psychology into leadership practice to enable individuals to influence others more effectively.

SLI's flagship "Lead with the Brain in Mind" neuroleadership program (10 modules) provides established and emerging leaders with unique insight into the workings of the human brain when interacting with others. Available as a continuous 10-month program or single events, this program guides participants to understand how to strengthen their own mental resilience while vastly improving the way they lead and influence individuals and groups. Structured according to the latest findings on how we learn best, this unique program integrates solid academic input, experiential learning and practical discovery in a proven formula.

Programme Structure

The initial two-day masterclass (Module 1) provides an introduction to social neuroscience and neuroleadership. This includes individual assessments and an in-depth look at how social neuroscience can be used as guideline and framework to apply neuroleadership in practice.
