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.

A great opportunity lies ahead for those who are passionate about developing people. If you are a coach, learning & organisational development professional or a business leader, you may have already noticed that leadership needs to be taught at all levels for people to have the ability to bring their ideas to fruition.

Being effective at managing a team or leading an organisation requires having a balanced and healthy brain & body, as this significantly influences decisions and actions.

These concepts are the basis of our proposition and the core of the i4 Neuroleader™ Methodology, designed to embed these new ways of thinking for the future of work.

Expand your thinking and incorporate this amazing new knowledge and the world's most cutting-edge leadership development methodology into your practice.

By participating in the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment Certification, you will be able to integrate the role that our biology plays in the development of leaders and collaborative teams. You will walk away with a renewed perspective of yourself and acquire cutting-edge concepts and tools that you can immediately apply to your personal life and workplace.

Details on how we assess your completion:

Assignment 1 encompasses a hands-on experience with your own i4 Neuroleader™ 360° Feedback Assessment. You also have access to the i4 Neuroleader™ Course. Completing this additional 40 hour course is a prerequisite for being able to finish this certification program.

This additional course serves as a self-paced learning tool designed to enrich the understanding of the i4 Neuroleader™ Model for individuals at any level. It offers additional development opportunities post the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment results. The course's focus is on nurturing leadership competencies crucial for the Imagination Age, emphasising the optimisation of brain function for enhanced overall well-being. Participants are guided toward evolving into leaders characterised by integration, inspiration, imagination, and intuition.

This assignment includes a 1-on-1 Zoom debrief session with one of our expert coaches. During this session, your i4 Neuroleader™ Report results will be thoroughly explained. The session not only serves as a chance for you to understand the assessment debrief process but also allows you to prepare yourself for your practice debrief sessions in Assignment 2. This assignment serves as an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment, the tool you will use with clients or staff post-certification.

If you have purchased both programs simultaneously and haven't previously completed this course, we recommend dedicating time to its lessons before proceeding to subsequent sections of the certification program. Full certification is granted upon the completion of both programs.

Assignment 2 requires you to carry out two practice debrief sessions using the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment. You're free to select any participants for these sessions, including clients, colleagues, friends, or family members. For this task, you must choose one participant who agrees to let you record the Zoom meeting. Our team will evaluate your session, offer feedback on your debrief, and confirm that the report has been accurately debriefed.

Assignment 3 marks the final step toward obtaining your certification. Through a 1,000-word written reflection entry, you can share insights gained from your experience and elaborate on how you plan to apply the i4 Neuroleader™ Model & Methodology in your practice.

We accept submissions in English and Spanish.

Throughout the program, we have included knowledge quizzes to help solidify your understanding of the material. These quizzes are designed as tools to aid in memory retention, and their outcomes do not impact your overall success in completing the program.

Yes it is! The i4 Neuroleader™ Model & Methodology was first conceptualised by Silvia Damiano, who founded the About my Brain™ Institute in 2009.

With a science background combined with 20 years of experience in leadership development,
Silvia created the i4 Neuroleader™ Model after collating and analysing the most recent and cutting edge neuroscience findings applied to leadership.

Other inputs that contributed to the development of the model and assessment, included interviews with experts, surveys and analysis of the traits of inspirational leaders conducted at a global scale across a variety of industries over a 4 year period.

Once the i4 Neuroleader™ Model was tested and its impact studied, the process of developing the assessment commenced in 2012. The outcome of this research was the development of a 128-item questionnaire which assesses the abilities, traits, attitudes and behaviours that underpin the meta-competencies of PerformanceCollaborationInnovation and Agility.

The assessment and certification programs were officially launched in 2013 after a period of prototyping, testing, and statistical analysis. Since then, the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment has been completed by over 30,000 people in every single continent and across a variety of industries in the public and private sectors.

In 2014, Silvia Damiano published the book ‘Leadership is Upside Down’ which
describes the research and the rationale of the i4 Neuroleader™ Model as well as the business case of why we need to look at leadership through a new lens to thrive in the 21st Century.

The design of the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment Certification is centered around certifying individuals to utilize the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessments. This neurobiology-based 360° feedback tool is supported by a fully resourced learning space, aiming to assist individuals in becoming more integrated, inspirational, imaginative, and intuitive.

Participants are able to quantify their leadership abilities, learn to optimise brain function and enhance their wellbeing through a 360° feedback process and self-paced learning modules. We are proud to offer one of the most cutting-edge leadership development programs available in the marketplace that supports consultants in content delivery and training.

We are committed to delivering prompt service and technical expertise to facilitate a seamless digital experience and ensure the smooth progress of your assessment projects.

The i4 Neuroleader™ Model, Methodology and Assessment is a unique body of work that started in 2009, combining the output of years of research and Silvia Damiano’s original insights. The i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment Certification has been designed to train individuals on how to use, debrief and coach with the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment. You will also learn how to use the ready-made teaching resources in your coaching or consulting practice.

The teaching resources cannot be used without purchasing either the Self or 360° Feedback Feedback i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment on a per-person basis and keeping your annual i4 Neuroleader™ Practitioner License active. These resources are designed to enhance the implementation of the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment and Practitioners are required to purchase either assessment for every participant when conducting the i4 Neuroleader™ Program. This serves as a licensing fee to use the Intellectual Property and the teaching resources offered.

The Self Assessment is a more affordable option to cover the licensing fees when conducting the program (a nominal fee per user), while the 360° Feedback Assessment provides you with a more comprehensive package for the benefit of your clients, in addition to providing the 360° Feedback scores. This fee per participant, constitutes the corresponding royalty for using this Intellectual Property.

If you would like to host a public program and be listed on the About my Brain Institute website, please contact us to discuss your case and apply for a license. Organisations wishing to include any portion of the i4 Neuroleader™ IP in a public offering must reach out to us to secure a license.

Please note that this certification program only permits i4 Neuroleader™ Practitioners to use the IP for the purpose of delivering programs sold as part of a private consulting service within organisations or to individual coaching clients.
