I really believe that actionable knowledge is power and understanding how the brain works, empowers leaders and educators to be the best version of themselves and the result is ‘increased workplace performance and productivity’- Maureen Chiana.
Our Strategies consist of Five Key Areas: NeuroREACT:
Rewire your brain for success – awareness of beliefs, mindset, perceptions and impact in the workplace
Emotional Intelligence – managing emotional and mental states for increased performance
Adaptability – empathy, flexibility through change/leading change
Connect – Increased employee engagement with learners and each other, through more effective communication, feedback and collaboration.
Transform – transformation with behaviour change that boosts productivity, and outcome whilst increasing expectations and profits.
You learn to use brain-based skills to breakthrough mental and emotional limitations, to become serving leaders that lead at a higher conscious level.
You learn to manage your emotional state, so you breakthrough negative thinking patterns to achieve the organizations goals, build resilience & confidence, stay focused to lead at a higher level and achieve higher performance, higher productivity and profitability.
By using these skills, you will maximize the value you get from the communication and collaboration of your staff, which is essential to improving the quality of service provided across your institution.
- Receive an Accredited CPD Certificate on completion
- Work at your own pace
- Interactive & engaging sessions
- Get ongoing support to embed your learning
- Join our leaders community where you can interact with other leaders, get support and build relationships.
- Lots of worksheets, exercises and activities to help you 'rewire your brain'.
This time calls for a new conscious leadership capacity to meet the challenges faced, in a more intentional and strategic way.
To develop such a capacity would allow leaders create a workforce of greater possibilities.
Your success as a leader or manager does not depend on 'What you do' or 'How you do it,' but on the 'Inner workings of your Mind'.
Conscious leadership is about integrating your mental and emotional states and collaboratively bringing innovative solutions to the challenging issues of the organization.
Success isn’t possible without changing the behaviour of people throughout the organization. But changing behavior is never easy even when it is obvious, that new habits will lead to significant progress.
Leaders and managers that understand the recent breakthroughs in the Neuroscience of leadership can lead and influence mindful change: true transformation must take into account the functionality of the brain, and the ways in which it predisposes people to resist some forms of leadership and accept others.
It is imperative now that to truly be a successful productive organisation calls for looking forward and leaving the past behind.
Most organizations have missed out on the benefits of collaborative working as they find that highly competitive teams are secretly working against each another.
The Benefits of this are:
- creation of an empowered workforce with lasting transformative change.
- increased employee engagement
- greater creativity and innovation
- increased productivity and high performance
- support with 'Succession Planning'
- with an overall outcome of improved sustained business results.
“I attended a business conference with Maureen as a Keynote Speaker - her session was on Wired for Success.
The session unlocked my mind, my thinking, my brain! Suddenly, I looked at my notes at the end of her session and there was the answer - I had mapped out my journey. Thank you Maureen for a fruitful session.”
“Maureen carried out a highly regarded and successful development day on Emotional Intelligence for Leaders at our NHS Trust. The day was expertly led and delivered, with a depth of scientific knowledge and effective communication to make the subject matter accessible to all. Highly recommended.”K. Woods - NHS Kent
“Maureen is excellent at what she does - nurturing leaders using approaches in neuroscience. What particularly stood out for me was how accessible she made very abstract scientific concepts.”Gloria Appiah - Lecturer at University of Kent
“The way in which you set your mind can enable positive and quick progression within your professional life.
After working closely with Maureen, and taking part in different trainings, a mind-set which was confident and encouraging was gained and built upon.
Salary in the last four years has increased significantly with a move into management in a short space of time.
Maureen is an expert in changing mind sets and enabling individuals, teams, as well as organisations to be able to move forward towards a goal. ”
“You inspired me and gave me self confidence and look what happened!! I have just won the Excellence in teaching and learning award.
I also won a West Norfolk Champion award (for my teaching and helping students and therefore making an impact on my community). The mayor of King's Lynn presented me with the award.
Thank you for just being you and literally changing my life.”

Teams that want to excel
The ability to improve business performance has to look at behaviour rather than personality in order to create organisational change and to develop team and personal performance.
Time Frame - Half day to One -day Introductory sessions.
Full Training Programs range from 3 - 12 months depending on your specific requirements.
Training is usually spaced out to give time to practice the new skills and tools and address any aspect of developing self and others.
- Consultancy - We work with you to identify areas for improvement and develop a training program that leverages on science to create behaviour change and form new daily habits.
We deliver this work in a dynamic blended model that can be virtual and/or in-person, allowing for inclusion of employees wherever they may be.
- Prism Brain Mapping Diagnostic - We always start with leaders/mangers or teams doing this diagnostic to help establish their unique behaviour or team behaviour preferences based on brain activity. Unlike traditional psychometric instruments, PRISM approaches human behaviour from the perspective of neuroscience, rather than psychological theory.
- Brain Based Coaching is included in our packages for stickability.
- Learning Styles are varied to support different preferences, such as: facilitation, webinars, case studies, role-playing, video tutorials, group work and games.
- Assessments - Participants are expected to work through worksheets, templates, action plans with a variety of tools and techniques to aid their self-study, learning and action taking.
I am a NeuroLeadership and Resilience trainer, speaker and mentor. I leverage on recent research, on the Neuroscience of how the brain works to empower leaders, educators, women in leadership and business owners to unlock their potential, maximise performance and build high performing teams, organisations and lives.
My philosophy is centred on the principle that leaders can achieve high performance, increase productivity, fast results and high team engagement by having the tools to develop high emotional intelligence, replace limiting beliefs and thoughts with enabling ones, understand behaviour preferences, be more adaptable, more innovative and more resilient. This can be achieved by making the brain work optimally and becoming a Conscious Leader.
Having worked in senior leadership and management positions in different sectors, I have also successfully run my own businesses in the Education, IT and Hospitality sectors. I had the opportunity to also work on various Medical Research projects over the years.
I am very passionate about supporting leaders to use insights from Neuroscience to see into your blind spot, expand your vision and more effectively influence outcome, release resistance, build more emotional agile teams and mobilise the entire organisation quickly and efficiently to a clear and common goal of excellence.
