    Dare to Lead With Your Brain

    The neuroscience that brings new perspectives on leadership

    Why do we act and react the way we do? Why do we get stressed, and why is it so hard to change? What is really necessary to increase my own and my team’s motivation? 

    Whether you are new in the leadership role or decades deep into leading others, these types of question are always relevant. Sure, there is an abundance of literature on leadership, but it is only in recent years that advancements in neuroscience has given us a deeper understanding of why we act the way we do. 

    This course will provide you, as a leader, with insights on the brain and the mechanisms behind human behavior. You will receive tools dealing with motivation, stressed employees, increasing performance, breaking bad habits and improving your organization’s decision making processes.

    Your Learning Brain

    Nothing but the facts on how the brain works when you're learning.

    In this Daily Bits Of Facts course, we dig into the latest research in the field of neuroscience to bring you bite-sized lessons on how the brain learns when it's influenced by factors such as stress, emotions, sleep, curiosity and information overload. 

    You should take this course if you're interested in finding the answers to these questions:

    • How does lack of sleep influence learning?

    • What role does curiosity play in academic achievement?

    • How does stress affect your "memory factory" - the hippocampus?

    • Are there cognitive activities that help the aging brain stay sharp?

    Let's learn about learning!
    What our users are saying about the course:

    "It's perfect for if you want to understand human behavior and know more about your brain. Really interesting angle to neuroscience"

    Getting to Know Your Brain

    Everyday neuroscience for curious people

    Ever wished you had paid more attention in biology class? Do you feel that you know very little about the one organ you couldn't survive without? Interested in learning about neurotransmitters and what causes some of the most common mental disorders? 

    Look no further – this is the course for you!

    In ten very short lessons, we will go through some of the most important parts and systems in the brain. You will also get a brief, neurological explanation to what might cause depression, anxiety, and addiction.

    Don't expect to learn everything there is to know about the brain. Instead expect to learn enough to understand your reactions a bit better, and enough to drop a fun fact or two about the brain at your next dinner party.


    Said about the course:

    "I love learning about neuroscience, for me who has read lots of books on the subject this was a great reminder. Recommend it to anyone interested in knowing about why we behave the way we do"

    Thinking right & wrong

    Make better use of your brain

    Do you use your brain in the right way? 

    The human brain is constantly evolving, but this evolution is excruciatingly slow. Abilities that once helped us escape sabre-toothed tigers are not nearly as useful in an office or in a traffic jam. Despite this, our brains keep opting for the Stone Age reaction of fight or flight. Meanwhile, the abilities we could really use in modern life often escape us. 

    In this course, you will get acquainted with the cornerstones of thinking, such as logic, correlation, and reasoning under uncertainty. We will focus on some common mistakes our brains make, and we will provide you with tools you can use to avoid them. This is the perfect course for anyone who wants to become a better and more rational decision maker and improve their understanding of the brain and thought processes.

    The Fundamentals of Learning: Creating Connection

    Master the skill of learning

    Most people don’t think of learning as a skill. They think of learning as a given. Whether you’re good at it or not. Whether you have it or not. We’re here to tell you that anyone can become a good learner if they apply some techniques that have been proven to make learning stick.

    Knowing how to learn is a skill, and in this course, we’ll show you the science-backed tricks to get good at it. 

    In order to make learning stick, we need to create connections in our brain. By hooking the new information to previous knowledge, we ensure the encoding of what we’re learning deep into our memory.

    If you want to know how to create these connections that make learning more effective, then this course is for you.
