In organizations around the world, leaders are facing a deluge of urgent issues: a crisis in employee engagement, the need to make workforces more diverse, and the challenge of making workplaces feel human in an era of increasing dependence on technology and remote communication.
At the NeuroLeadership Institute, we believe brain science can help provide solutions. Join us on Your Brain At Work, the official podcast of the NeuroLeadership Institute — where top researchers and thought leaders share breakthroughs in brain science and industry leaders reveal the strategies behind their success.
By helping them understand how the brain works, we equip leaders with the tools to transform their organizations — building new habits and changing how people work, communicate, and make decisions. Combining research and practice, brain science and business leadership, Your Brain at Work explores how insights from the lab can provide solutions that work across industries and at any scale.
Season 1 guests include broadcast journalist Soledad O’Brien; Dean Carter, Director of Human Resources, Finance, Legal, Shared Services at Patagonia; Deb Bubb, Vice President of Learning and Inclusion at IBM; and FD Wilder, Senior Vice President of Go-To-Market Strategy and Innovation at Procter & Gamble.

Customer ReviewsSee All
Great Content, Sound Quality should be improved
The NLI is an excellent organization that’s doing a lot of important research on how we work. I truly enjoy this podcast and have added it to my library. The only constructive point I have is that all interviewees (including Dr. Rock) should all be interviewed in a real studio. Listening to someone via Skype is not the sound quality I would expect from an organization this size. If you’re a home podcaster it’s one thing, if you’re an international organization the expectation is different.
He is absolut the best
Great content, terrible sound
I love the content, but the audio quality is terrible. Echo-y interviews. Plus David Rock makes this clicking/sucking sound of his tongue against the roof of his mouth every few words, and it is so annoying that I have had to stop listening mid-episode a few times. In the last episode, one of the guests started doing it. Please stop! It is so distracting!
