Neuroscience has provided a breakthrough in leadership development – particularly for managers in technical and specialist fields.

Significant technological advancements in fMRI, providing more knowledge about the brain in the last 5 years than ever before, and a fast-paced, overloaded work environment has lead to an increasing demand for neuroleadership – the science of leadership.

Kristen Hansen, Director of EnHansen Performance, is a leading neuroleadership speaker and coach, developing the TREAD program, focused on building traction for leaders – teaching them how to Think, Regulate, Engage, Adapt and Develop with the brain in mind.

“Neuroleadership provides leaders with not only the what and how of leadership but in many cases the why in scientific but simple ways. Understanding how the brain responds to different stimulus and the adverse affects that poor leadership has on creative and cognitive abilities, increases interest and motivation to lead better,” said Kristen.

Neuroleadership’s strength is in the provision of evidence-based, practical and systematic approaches to leadership – proving significant success in training managers that traditionally viewed leadership as a difficult concept.

It is an increasingly popular approach embraced by technical specialists in fields such as engineering, software development, and paramedics.

EnHansen Performance has seen significant demand in these fields, working with organisations including Ambulance NSW, Queensland Government Transport and Main Roads, Westpac and Google.

“The greatest shift I’ve noticed is a focus on self-leadership and improving the strategies a manager has to regulate, recharge, renew and rejuvenate,” Kristen said.

“Neuroleadership provides a robust set of strategies in these areas. The other area is the focus on coaching skills for managers. A brain-based approach to coaching direct reports is yielding excellent results.”

Enhansen Performance is hosting a half-day workshop – Know and Prime Your Brain For Success- in collaboration with international neuroscience expert Jeffrey Schwartz, on Friday 28 March 2014 at Cliftons, Sydney. To register your interest, visit: and-fulfillment.
