    Think Like a Leader

    Nine mental habits of leaders

    ***Over 6000 users are learning about the science of people from Vanessa's courses. It's easy and free to join them!***

    Leaders think differently.

    Many years ago, I had the opportunity to shadow the CEO of a major technology company for one day. That one day changed my life forever. Walking through the hallways of his company, hearing him interact on phone calls and watching him tackle projects and challenges was like nothing I had ever seen before.

    He was a human behavior hacker.

    That day was the start of my fascination with people and the hidden forces that make us tick. Since then, I have studied hundreds of leaders like him looking for patterns. In this course, I will share nine findings and give you concrete actions you can take in order to think and act like a leader.

    The course is free and it's delivered every day for two weeks straight to your inbox or to Messenger.
