Thoroughly researched and finely written, the real brilliance of Neuroscience for Leadership is how it links scientific brain network research with solid advice on decision-making, employee motivation, and organizational growth! Perceptive and brilliant!

Tara’s talk was thought provoking, engaging and witty. It generated a lot of discussion in the room and after the conference. Tara’s talk went down so well with a critical audience, due to the scientific rigor that underpinned the content, the fact that the subject matter was relevant to all of us, and the quality of the delivery.

Tara Swart came to MIT Sloan to teach and the students stood and applauded. They appreciated learning about the brain, but also about how to use that knowledge in a corporate coaching context.
