Regulate Emotions

Discover the neuroscience of emotions and how learning to regulate your own can bring about vast improvements in your productivity and relationships.


Module III

Learn about the science of the “social” brain, why it’s so important, and how to improve the effectiveness of your interactions by leveraging it.


Module IV
Facilitate Change

Analyze the neuroscience of change, why we struggle with it, and how you can become a positive change agent in your organization with this knowledge.

Learn from Leading Minds

Taking part in this course was an eye opener to a different world and to a new way of seeing and doing things. I became more aware of myself and of others. It would be interesting to do an MRI scan before and after the course to see brain changes. I’m pretty sure mine changed a lot!
Vera Alves
I believe the course would be of value to any person who is responsible for managing others – whether as a new endeavor or as a seasoned manager. Its impact in helping create change in one’s personal life is also very powerful.
Fantastic! I start to better understand my reactions and those of others. thus adapting what I plan to say or do… I wish I would have had that training earlier in my career (and for my private life as well). When I talked about this program around me, people are just amazed at the potential of our brain.
Laurence Laffargue
I really loved this course, and the introduction it gave me to a much wider field of thinking and reading about the brain. For me, it was a long-awaited theoretical foundation for ways in which leaders can make workplaces the safe, creative, productive places we all want them to be.
Leigh Tabrett
Any Executive Coach could benefit from taking the Certificate in the Foundations of NeuroLeadership to have a stronger grasp on how to work with clients in the process of changing behavior. The insight and research provided by the NLI is effectively adapted to the business world. I was able to find a corelation to all the content to some facet of my coaching practice and in a very practical way. I am a better Coach than I was 6 months ago thanks to this course.
