Brain Based

Information, Skills and Practices that build Inspirational, Inclusive & Innovative Leaders

Neurobiology based 360º Feedback Assessment Tool, E-Learning Platform and Coaching & Development services 

Sometimes, it’s important to work a little more closely with an individual or team to harness and build their human potential and help create sustainable, meaningful change & leadership strength. We provide certified i4 Neuroleader practitioners to facilitate leadership coaching and development programs built on the i4 Neuroleader framework and tools – a brain-based leadership development model created by Silvia Damiano and the team at About My Brain Institute.

The i4 Neuroleader Program offers engaging leadership development grounded in neuroscience and accredited by the ICF.

The i4NeuroleaderTM Platform is a fully resourced and scalable eLearning space that includes a 21st century leadership and wellbeing program powered by a neurobiology based 360O feedback assessment tool. Used to measure and develop the leadership competencies of the Imagination Age (Performance, Collaboration, Innovation & Agility), this platform and associated coaching helps to optimise brain body function and enhance wellbeing to create more integrated, inspirational, imaginative and intuitive leaders – resulting in inclusive, human centred leadership fit for the challenges of the 21st century.

The i4 model & methodology applies the latest scientific research of brain and body processes to develop the human behind the leader and can be offered at any level of an organisation. Whether you are investing in your current leaders, growing future leaders, or creating a thriving organisational culture, our Leadership development services enable people to perform, collaborate, innovate and navigate work, life and leadership in all its forms with agility.

We need to support a new breed of leaders who evolve beyond the outdated leadership styles and management strategies that enabled – and sometimes actually encouraged – leaders to leave our humanity at home.

The i4 model is a new leadership model and a new leadership philosophy

Great leaders are everywhere, not just in the executive suite. The i4 model democratises leadership by eliminating bias – gender, racial and generational because the skills of the model transcend those things. The i4 model is a model based on brain function that takes traits, characteristics, behaviours and abilities from both the left and right side of the brain and integrates them into a seamless whole. This is a leadership model that facilitates both leadership of self, and leadership of others. 

Existing leadership models were conceptualised to fit in either the industrial or information era, where the command and control style of leadership was the most prevalent. This style has been displaced because of the needs of a 21 century workforce that is more flexible, diverse and global. We’re moving out of the information age where leadership imperatives were to tightly and efficiently manage people and achieve goals and objectives for simply the lowest cost. We’re moving into the imagination era, where the new leadership imperative is to engage people, to inspire, to read the times, to move fast and to sustain long-term value. The imagination era sits within the global context of a VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous). Innovation alone within the context of a VUCA world isn’t enough. To survive, and more significantly to thrive, a VUCA world calls for agility, collaboration and performance as well as innovation. The i4Neuroleader model focuses on these 4 competencies essential in our rapidly changing world.

Everyone operates in a leadership capacity at some point in their work or life so providing the information and tools to help people develop or refine their leadership abilities is an essential aspect of maximising human potential for any organisation. Improving leadership at the top is essential for all organisations in creating a positive ripple effect but developing leadership at all levels is vital to creating a positive and thriving culture and sustainable future.
