Scientific Research

Imagine having a team of scientists obsessed with talent problems you haven’t yet been able to solve. At NLI, we listen to the market to hear what questions keep talent executives up at night, and we deploy our in-house PhDs and extended scientist network to find reliable, practical solutions.

This is not research for research’s sake. Our team distills vast scientific literatures into simple, actionable strategies that help companies perform better. We do this in three ways: original experimental work, original industry research, and synthesizing thousands of academic studies. This mining for patterns of insight informs better talent practices.

To stay up to date with our thought leadership, subscribe to the NLI blog: Your Brain At Work.

Delivery: Leveraging the science of learning

Not only are the contents of our partnerships steeped in the latest scientific research, but so is their delivery. We are experts in behavior change, and we design our consulting and learning solutions to bring out the best results from the brain’s strengths and constraints with the least cost.

NeuroLeadership Journal: Putting science to work

Since 2008, NLI has published the NeuroLeadership Journal, where leading academics have collaborated with practitioners to distill vast research literatures into actionable insights. Published multiple times a year, the journal’s editor-in-chief is Jay Van Bavel, who runs the Social Perception and Evaluation Lab at New York University. Paper authors include Elizabeth Haines, Tessa West, Matthew Lieberman, and Elliot Berkman.
