Watch Sneak Peak Overview


The world of work has changed forever.

Democratising leadership & neuroscience

Helping people apply the latest findings from the fields of science and wellness and how this impacts performance, collaboration, innovation and agility is critical for business success today.

To improve connection in our workplaces, understanding how we function as human beings is one of the most important strategies to retain talent and minimise burnout.

We must learn how each of us feels, how we imagine and intuit, to inspire ourselves and others. People want to go to work and use their thinking and ideas to drive growth while also maintaining a sense of balance.

Some organisations are beginning to appreciate that flexibility and brain-friendly environments are critical to support their staff in this new way of working. After all, thinking and ideas emerge from our brains.

Most businesses, with a few exceptions, have not yet adapted to this new reality, neither the mindsets nor the behaviours that can sustain it, are being fostered or developed.


Wait, is this program really for me?

Yes! It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced leadership or wellbeing practitioner or just starting out. This certification is aimed at anyone interested in personal development and the application of brain-based leadership, wellbeing and ‘neurocoaching’ in a professional or personal setting.

This certification program helps participants develop awareness around the application of neuroscience to leadership and provides tools to build better teams by enhancing the competencies of performance, collaboration, innovation and agility at an individual and group level.

Tiffany Wann
Learning & Development Expert

The 360° Feedback i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment has helped me look in the mirror and also see myself in the eyes of people I love, like my family, my friends and also my team. Fortunately, I decided to continue with this certification, and that led to an ‘aha’ moment in my mind. I realised that my health wasn’t part of my core values and that I needed a change, which meant caring about myself and others.

The i4 Neuroleader™ Certification was easy to use, engaging and very logically laid out and presented.
