TRAIN YOUR BRAIN TO THINK LIKE AN ELITE LEADER
leverage the latest in neuroscience TO ACHIEVE BREAKTHROUGH GROWTH
In a world where the playing field has been leveled - where every organization has access to the same capital, technology, people and resources, leadership is the last great point of leverage. The problem with humans, however, is that as we struggle to keep pace with unprecedented levels of change, we’re doing battle with our own brains.
Modern neuroscience tells us that the human mind is incredibly adept at reinterpreting the immediate past, present and future in ways that help us justify our inaction and silently undermine our capacity for change.
As we consider changes in everything from personal habits to strategic initiatives, our brains, which have evolved over tens of thousands of years to be risk-averse, filter the information around us to convince us that we’re fine, our judgments are solid, and we can stay the course, just as we’ve always done.
But there is hope.
While most leadership development programs are expensive, time-consuming, high-touch commitments, it’s possible to cut to the chase. The good news is that most human learning takes place NOT under the watchful eye of a tutor or mentor, but in the daily crucible of events, where we try new things, fail quickly and move on to the next trial and error experience. Overwhelmingly, again and again, we learn by DOING. And in the case of leadership, it is by doing Eleven Essential Things that are designed to rewire our brains so that we all begin to think like the leaders we admire (and in whose companies we invest).
Over the past 30 years, Dennis Brouwer has developed a systematic approach to energize leaders, unlock growth, and build high-performance teams. Brouwer’s non-traditional approach of learning by doing, deconstructing, reconfiguring, and rebuilding has been successfully applied to products, processes, and teams. His unique background as a US Navy Flight Officer, bestselling author, turnaround leader and senior executive in the highest ranks of business blends together into an inspiring and actionable approach to organizational growth.
Let’s get started.
“The most important things I look for in an executive are leadership, judgment, ego-maturity and self-awareness. Dennis brings those factors to life and makes clear what’s possible with the combination of Creative leadership, a winning business model and a dynamic, resilient culture.”
