From 2 hour workshops to Leadership Programmes, we love to promote the latest findings from contemporary neuroscience. Here we share the work being done in training institutions and universities in Scotland and Bangladesh.
Our brain-based initiatives reflect our passion for applied neuroleadership; a useful tool when clients are looking for something a bit more cutting edge. Understanding how our brain works can directly improve thinking and help us to nurture the habits we want to see played out in our lives.
In September 2015, Michele Armstrong delivered a short workshop on brain based learning at the Scottish Training Federation (STF) Annual Conference; this was so successful that Chief Executive, Stuart McKenna requested a re-run for STF members in May 2016. This inter-active workshop looks at optimum conditions for learning and applies the 4 key tools to the groups own learning as they devise how to apply the strategies in their training programmes. Feedback from participants on both occasions was excellent.
Partially based on a book of the same name by David Rock, Quiet Leadership draws on a range of theoretical models (e.g. Goleman and Adair) and explores a range of practical applications for delegates to get their teeth into. Although delivered in a number of organisations Including Dundee and St Andrews Universities), each course is adapted to meet the needs of each specific client, has been run as a 1 day and a 2 day programme thus making it both responsive and relevant.
Again, highly adaptive to specific audiences, neuro-leadership is a phrase coined by David Rock in 2006 and a relatively new leadership theory that permeates through all aspects of leadership - including self-regulation, change management, leading the team and interactions with others. Brain-based applications to coaching, leadership and living our best lives will be included in our Online Academy.
Exciting international links are also being established with Maxim Rahman of Minds at Work Global in Bangladesh. Having attended a Leadership Course with Michele in Edinburgh University, this led to a shared vision to transform lives by teaching others how to apply the lessons emerging from contemporary neuroscience.
