Leadership Development Programme

Leaders are crucial to the success of organisations. They need to ensure alignment between your business objectives and your people who will deliver it. Neuroscience and other sciences offer reliable insights into what leaders need to be aware of. Much organisational training and the perspectives underpinning them contradicts modern research about how people really work. Our invitation to you is to take advantage of the leading-edge knowledge we have about how your people truly unlock success. Choosing the right partners for your leadership development programme is a big responsibility.

Our various leadership development programme options provide the opportunity to advance leadership for yourself, your team and your organisation through the practical application of the latest findings from neuroscience. The programmes help leaders improve culture, become more resilient and, of course, lead more effectively through an understanding of how the brain works. We help give leaders a real advantage in shaping their organisation while enjoying the process and helping others do the same.

  • Grounded in the latest neuroscience research. Immerse yourself in reliable and relevant neuroscience information to enhance your leadership skills and get to know yourself and your teams better and raise performance.
  • Apply your learning with practical insights. We strongly believe that real learning is applied through practice, and that is why throughout our programmes, you will be using your new knowledge and skills in the context of your own organisation and trialling, evaluating and improving it with the support of your peers.
  • Fully online / or face to face / or hybrid. All modules can be delivered in a virtual or face to face environment, allowing you to access the learning whichever way works best for your people.
  • Interactive. Connecting with real people in our live sessions goes beyond simply watching pre-recorded videos and lessons so that you can learn from others in similar situations and expand your networks.

Our experts have invested a lot of time over the years scrutinising insights from a vast amount of academic research that’s unlocking the secrets about how we work. We keep up to date so you know you’re getting input you can trust. We’re also experienced in working with leaders of all levels in organisations.

Our programmes address the topics most frequently asked for…and the ones no-one knows yet to be asking for! Neuroscience enables us to get out ahead of the curve.

The programme uses a specialised form of cross training to build capability in as short a time as possible. We know employees have a lot on. Each leadership development programme works alongside a high workload, encouraging new helpful habits that will benefit your leaders long after they’ve completed it.

“Our senior team introductory session with Amy provoked a high level of interest and engagement. Since working in this role, I haven’t seen the group latch on to something so quickly in such a strong way.”

Steven Napier, International HR Director, Twinings Ovaltine

“I have had the opportunity to work with Amy for approximately a year and in that time she has proven to be very engaging regardless of whether talking to a senior global stakeholder or a junior professional.”

Caroline Henderson, Director, Global Assurance Talent Team, EY

Leadership Development Programme Options

Open programme

If you have 1 – 11 leaders you’d like to benefit from the neuroscience of leadership then our open leadership development programme run in partnership with the Moller Institute is your best option.

In-house programme

If you want to develop teams of your leaders then we can run a tailored leadership development programme for you in house.

Introduction to Neuroscience of Leadership

If you want to dip your toe in and see how your people respond to our style perhaps a keynote or short workshop would be a good starting point.

Environments that catalyse High Performing Neural Environments

  • The concept of High Performing Neural Environments is one we’ve developed over several years and it underpins a lot of how we’re able to help organisations get great results.
  • Different neural environments are conducive to different results.
  • Triggering different neural environments depends on the person’s external environment.
  • Leaders hold the keys to unlocking people’s potential through adapting those environments.

Understanding, and keeping up with, the science isn’t always easy.

You need trusted guides. We have a team dedicated to keeping up to date. A lot of the knowledge emerging from neuroscience is tangled up in a world of academic jargon. We do the time demanding, heavy lifting making sure we’re extracting the gold-dust from the research. Equally important, is translating those insights into practical applications for your leaders.

 

What resources are included within each programme?

This depends on which leadership development programme you opt for. However, we always like to design programmes with the neuroscience of learning in mind. This means we’d love to always include:

  • Introduction: For individuals to understand the expectations of any programme & how to succeed.
  • Self-study: Videos and reading material which can be dug into at the desired pace.
  • Guided reflection: Required for the deep development we’re looking for in leaders, self-reflection is an essential part of the process. As is gathering feedback from others.
  • Live teaching / engagement: Opportunities to ask questions, unpack applications, connect with others and really embed concepts.

Module topics you can build your leadership development programme from:

The suggested programme comprises four modules, with the first module providing a foundation for progression onto the three subsequent modules. Together the modules will help you gain a better understanding of people, how your teams react to change and how to make this as effective and positive as possible. The modules are:

  • Optimising Leadership through Neuroscience: Foundations (core)
  • Optimising Leadership through Neuroscience: High Performing Cultures
  • Optimising Leadership through Neuroscience: High Quality Thinking
  • Optimising Leadership through Neuroscience: Behaviour Change Introduction (project-based)

And others upon request.

Enhanced Leadership Development Programme: Building Better Brains

To further support leaders and provide continued professional learning, we highly recommend this additional video-based series of 50 topics aimed at Building Better Brains. They can be used to develop a learning culture, coaching culture and provide a great focus for self-reflection and action points.

Q

“Thanks Amy. It’s the second time I’ve seen you – and I genuinely loved it. I’m really looking forward to hosting my ALG to see what my group took from the session. I hope we get to work with you again. I’ve never been so interested in something with science in the title!!.”

Lisa Asbury, Leadership Development Specialist, Sainsbury’s

“Amy thanks a lot!!! You should know that our managers are using phrases from your speech and presentation now in their everyday work!:) So thank you very much indeed! It was extremely useful for us.”
