What Participants Say


"I actually miss this course now that it’s over! I got so much out of it, and enjoyed it so much. I can only imagine how much work goes in behind the scenes to pull this together so seamlessly, so thank you and your colleagues so much for all your work on this – it’s greatly appreciated, and has made a real difference in my life – personally and professionally."

"The importance of focused attention to learning, effective emotional control, and effective social interaction and the brain work needed to develop the capacity for focused attention because the default for the brain is self-narrative via the default mode network which is the opposite of focused attention."

"The Foundations in NeuroLeadership program enabled me to convert my fascination with neuroscience into practical knowledge and tools that have improved my professional and personal interactions and my work results. I would recommend this program to those interested in science-based ways to optimize your brain capacity and the performance of others."

"This was a phenomenal program. I learned so much about how to increase learning and engagement within my organization."

"It really validated a lot of what I'd heard elsewhere from other programs and courses."
