The Brainwaves for Leaders blog is published by Neuresource Groups sister company Neurocapability Press. Through these blogs our aim is to explore and share the practical applications of the neuroscience of leadership to build brain friendly leaders and organisations. ‘Brain Friendly’ leaders and organisations understand that their people are their most valuable resource.   Brain friendly leaders tap into the growing body of neuroscience knowledge to enhance the way they facilitate and lead change, solve problems, make decisions, collaborate with others and manage pressure and conflict.

Brainwaves for Leaders incorporates the successful elements of more than 20 years of consulting experience in organisational change and development, corporate training, and executive coaching. Our focus is on the latest developments in the neuroscience of leadership. Many of our contributors are experts in the field; others are newcomers and bring a fresh perspective. You’ll find a range of material and an abundance of ideas on the use of brain-friendly techniques to improve your work experience.
