Throughout her career, Jan has helped leaders run better businesses. She has a qualification in NeuroLeadership and in 2009 she started to use the findings from neuroscience and other behavioural sciences to back up the advice and learning materials she uses.
She has written books to help leaders to apply these finding to their leadership and their business. Her consultancy, Head Heart + Brain, is dedicated to improving business practice through applying the findings from neuroscience.
Working with the rational business strategy and goals –
- the head – with the emotions focusing on how people connect to each other and to ideas
- the heart
- the brain – using the findings from neuroscience and other behavioural sciences to inform our work.The business can improve the way people in organisations lead and manage by applying the science because people make better leaders and are more successful when they understand how the brain reacts to change. They can then manage their people in a way that works with the functioning of the brain, not against it.
When brain-savvy techniques are applied we see more engagement, productivity, and personal awareness.
