Dream Focused, Business Minded

Bringing Neuroscientific Knowledge into Leadership and Management.

It’s a different world now. Markets and workforces are increasingly global and diverse. Change is so rapid that one leader can’t hope to keep abreast of all developments, much less be responsible for the innovation needed to keep ahead of them. Decision making is broadly distributed across an organization, and collaboration is required with numerous parties outside it.

In this course we will explore the application of neuroscience experientially to work on your inner game. Over the 6 weeks we will examine increasing self and social awareness, re-examining relationships, trust, influential conversations, conflict, stress, transparency, culture, habit change, and more. Those who participate in all sessions should notice real change in their relationships, defensiveness, confidence, performance, agility, and happiness.
