The i4 Model is a personal leadership and well-being framework that encompasses the competencies of Performance, Collaboration, Innovation & Agility, and their sixteen underpinning pillars.
The concepts that support this framework are based on the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience, neurogastronterology, sleep, nutrition, mindfulness, body movement, design thinking, strategy and positive psychology.
The economic landscape and work environments have changed and become more complex than we ever imagined. Existing leadership models have not kept up with these changes, thus the need to adopt a renewed perspective on leadership.
The ‘i4 Neuroleader Model‘ proposes a novel approach to leadership and a more cost-effective way to reawaken the leadership powers within us, by first identifying our inner abilities and then learning how to use them more effectively.
The provides the tools and processes to develop and embed the competencies and core abilities of the i4 Model. Going beyond the traditional cognitive approaches creates a more holistic and inspirational experience.

The i4 Model is named after four of the sixteen pillars that sit under Performance, Collaboration, Innovation and Agility. These 4 pillars are: integration, inspiration, imagination and intuition. These abilities can have a significant impact on leadership effectiveness, helping leaders better respond to a ‘VUCA’ world, a world that is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous.
The i4 Neuroleader Model is based on many years of research undertaken by Silvia Damiano. In her book, 'Leadership is Upside Down', she explains the rationale, thinking and science underpinning this development and why leadership models need to change.
The i4 Model is made up of competencies, pillars and elements that are important to consider when developing as a leader. The model in its full display is called the i4 Neuroleader Model Curriculum. This structured mapping forms the basis of all the About my Brain Institute’s programs, certifications and resources.
