TRACTION. The Neuroscience of Leadership and Performance

Based on the NeuroTREAD™ model, how to Think, Regulate, Engage, Adapt and Develop with the brain in mind.

“TRACTION” summarises the latest neuroscience research on how to transform managers into agile leaders of change and performance.

Over 15,000 managers across various industries have benefitted from Kristen’s neuroscience approach in the last ten years.

By understanding the mechanics of their own brain, managers can engineer their own change and support change in others.
