About the NeuroLeadership Summit

For three days, world renowned experts in both neuroscience and leadership will gather with a select group of 40 guests, on top of a mountain in spectacular Northern Italy. Together they will explore some of today’s biggest workplace challenges through the eyes of a neuroscientist, and build the framework for a new domain of knowledge: NeuroLeadership.

The program has been carefully designed to facillitate breakthrough thinking. There will be significant time for quality interactions in small groups amongst participants and with speaker-experts.

A team of CIMBA MBA students, familiar with the basic principles of neuroscience as applied to leadership, will collect ideas and then conduct real-time research to solidify that thinking. To preserve the thinking, a documentary of the Summit will be created for distribution. The Summit will also see the launch of the neuroleadership institute and journal.

The Summit will focus on the latest discoveries in neuroscience and how those discoveries can be used to help organizations:

– Increase the level of employee engagement

– Drive cultural change

– Improve decision making

– Assist in the development of high performance leaders

– Improve the performance of individuals and whole systems

– Achieve strategic and tactical business goals
