Neuroleadership refers to the application of findings from neuroscience to the field of leadership.[1] The term neuroleadership was first coined by David Rock[2] in the US publication Strategy+Business.[3] Neuroleadership claims to bring neuroscientific knowledge into the areas of leadership development, management training, change management, education, consulting and coaching.


Neuroleadership is not without its critics.[4] They question whether having scientific brain data to back up what was commonly believed adds any value.
