Course overview

Fascinated by the latest neuroscience and how it might apply to improving leadership and organisations? Like to get a quick snapshot of the scope of the field, in a 1-day live event, without taking the plunge of serious study yet? Then NeuroLeadership 101 is for you.

The NeuroLeadership 101 program provides an introduction to the core concepts, organising principles, and frameworks that help you manage with the brain in mind. You will learn about neuroleadership and the broader context of the field. The program will get you up to speed on the most relevant research and how it applies to your role as a leader or developing leader in the organisation. We follow our own research to take a brain-friendly approach to helping you learn and interact with the core concepts. You’ll walk away with practical frameworks you can use back at your desk.

Throughout the course, we’ll share the neuroscience that will help you:

• Solve problems through insight – Help others solve problems by asking thought-provoking questions more than telling them what to do.

• Collaborate with others – Remove social threat from any situation to allow for more effective collaboration.

• Set and achieve goals – Set effective goals for yourself and others, then create the right conditions to achieve those goals.
