Neuroscience Approach to Agile Leadership Development

A world-class framework and neuroscience approach to developing high-impact, agile leaders:

  • Research indicates that effective leadership skills can impact a company’s bottom line by 28%, yet 87% of organizations do not believe they have sufficient leaders who can steer their organizations through disruptive change towards future success.
  • Neuro-Link’s High Impact Leadership Agility Development  Program has proved to help our clients develop agile leaders who significantly drive business results and impact the company’s bottom line.

Rapidly changing technologies coupled with data explosion and the generally heightened pace of change are causing disruption at every level of society and in every industry. It is redefining what the current and future global landscape looks like and the skills needed to be employable, successful and competitive.

To achieve and maintain organizational success, it requires mentally agile leaders with a fast, focused and flexible mind to adapt to new technologies, systems and structures fast and easy and the ability to learn, unlearn, relearn and multiskill quickly. The only way that organizations will achieve and maintain a competitive advantage is if they have leaders who have the mental flexibility to out-think, out-learn and out-create their competition. This makes brain power the number one skill set necessary for agile leaders to solve complex problems and have the analytical and creative thinking abilities

Neuro-Link follows a neuroscience approach towards developing agile leaders. We believe “you can’t improve what you can’t measure”. We start our leadership agility development process by doing a Neuro Agility Profile® (NAP™) assessment of people. The purpose of the assessment is to help people identify which elements they can improve to optimize the brain-mind elements that impact the easy, speed and flexibility with which they think, learn and process information.

Program overview

How Your Neurological Design Influence How You Lead:

Servant leadership, values-driven leadership and agile leadership are some of the most  powerful constructive forms of leadership in the worlds of business, education, sport and the political arena. The High Impact Leadership Agility Leadership Program includes these leadership philosophies as they compliment each other and fits perfectly  into the Neuro Agility and Emotional Intelligence Frameworks of developing leaders.

Leadership agility is the ability to make smart and effective decisions in a rapidly changing world. It’s being able to anticipate the best way to go forward; knowing the best ways to inspire your team; turning thoughts and ideas into actions; and evaluating results for successes and failures. As a leader develops agility, they increase their ability to become situationally aware and adapt in complex, quickly changing environments. More agile leaders are generally capable of seeing more options, engaging stakeholders more collaboratively, and making more informed decisions.

Servant leadership is about inspiring, serving and influencing others. All people can serve, inspire and influence others, but in different ways. During this program you will explore a neuroscience approach on how accurate awareness of your neurological design and intelligence preferences will determine how you influence, serve and inspire others. Your Neuro Design is the point of departure for developing each leadership competence.

Values-driven leadership is about leaders embracing and embodying values they perceive to be greater than their own ego, comfort and existence. They are purpose-driven leaders who’s values are born from their purpose. Their purpose is clear because they accurately understand who they are, what they stand for and what they believe. The point of departure for developing values-driven leaders is using Neuro-Link’s Emotional Intelligence Framework.
