The i4 Neuroleader is a wellbeing and brain-based leadership model which includes a practical training program that develops the competencies of Performance, Collaboration, Innovation and Agility for leaders and their teams.
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 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 scientist & leadership expert Silvia Damiano. In her book, ‘Leadership is Upside Down’, Silvia explains the rationale, thinking and science underpinning this development and why leadership models need to change.
Together with this groundbreaking research, the i4 Neuroleader Assessment Tools, Workbook & Online Training Course were developed to provide measurable practical strategies to enhance anyone’s leadership potential.
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.
Together with the principles of the i4 Neuroleader Model, we have also developed an application methodology, which provides the tools and processes to develop and embed the i4 competencies and core abilities which are featured in this framework. This leading edge program goes far beyond the traditional cognitive approaches, creating a more holistic and inspirational experience for participants.

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.
