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."
