Research-Based Coaching Programs With NeuroLeadership Institute

At NeuroLeadership Institute for Individuals, we facilitate insights for coaches around the world. Our goal is to help you understand the brain and use your newfound knowledge to connect with those you coach. With a science-based coaching course like ours, you can grow as a leader and approach changes and challenges with confidence.

We have two separate programs for individuals to help you harness the power of neuroscience. Our Brain-Based Coaching (BBC) program uses neuroscience as a foundation for business coaching skills. If you're a coaching professional, manager or HR specialist, we've designed this program to help you coach your team and drive positive change.

Our CFN Certificate in the Foundations of NeuroLeadership is ideal for anyone looking to learn more about the relationship between neuroscience and leadership. This program is an excellent option for individuals seeking self-improvement, future leaders developing skills to meet their goals and current professionals who want to enhance the workplace experience.

After you've completed our fact-based coaching program, you'll have the certificate to show for it. BBC certificates can contribute to International Coach Federation (ICF) accreditation, and a CFN aligns with a Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) certification.



Backed by Science for Effective Results

The NeuroLeadership Institute creates programs based on scientific principles. Our team of neuroscientists created these programs to illustrate how the brain learns, responds to change, regulates emotion, solves problems and interacts with others. These skills are vital in the professional world, whether you're a leader or a professional working your way up.

We give you the tools to form insights of your own. Every coaching and leadership experience is different depending on the environment, and we help you develop a foundation to succeed in becoming a more effective leader wherever you are. Learning about people and how they work will change the way you see the workplace.

Once you've retained the knowledge, we'll help you make an actionable plan to carry your skills forward. With a plan following your certification, you can drive results.

Get started by learning about different types of leadership styles, challenges faced by business leaders, effective business management techniques and more!

What Participants Say


"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."

"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."

"With its Brain Based Coaching Certificate program, NLI gives experienced as well as newbie coaches the tools and skills to have more effective, action oriented coaching conversations. The skills taught here are very pragmatic without being transactional. It is the best of both worlds, full of heart but keeping the brain in mind to forward the action. Even just a week later, this program is allowing me to serve my clients better."

"This program is exactly what we needed to form our internal coaching program. The model, framework and tools will provide some level of standardization among our coaches, with enough skill-building for our coaches to best use the tools. Our internal coaches are equipped to provide coaching to our high potential or newly promoted leaders."

"This course is life altering, it provides such understanding of how the brain is working behind the scenes that it makes sense of, not only the coachees world view but mine too. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to think, act and ask questions more meaningfully."

"The potential to generate insights is a very precious and useful skill. It’s worth a lot to transform actions into successful and healthy habits. This is an excellent course for anyone interested in understanding the neurobiological underpinnings to both successful executive coaching and change management initiatives. This informative course (NLI models are simple and easy to remember) stretches the brain muscle and gives the right balance of theory and practice for managers, executives and business coaches."
