Applied Neuroscience Testimonials

Utilizing her extensive knowledge and research about the intersection of neuroscience and leadership, Wendy Swire has developed a high-quality presentation on the theme of “Neuroleadership.” Her presentation balances information and practical activities to provide participants with a solid understanding of how their brains function and impact their leadership style and decision-making processes.”
– Mickey A. Benson, PhD., President, Monitor Associates, Inc.
Doubling down on my existing commitment to try to expose myself to as many new ideas and new people as possible, now I know that there’s evidence that establishing those neural paths is important.”
Defense Contractor
I already had high hopes for Wendy’s webinar on neuroplasticity because of some previous programs on neuroscience. She packed this one-hour session with precise definitions, research examples, coaching experiences, and ways to apply the concept of neuroplasticity in our own coaching practices. Perhaps the most effective element of her session was the challenge to incorporate these insights into our own lives by embracing learning, novelty, and personal change at any age.”
Gay-Lynn Carpenter, PCC President, International Coaching Federation of Virginia
I am more conscious about being in the moment and staying engaged. I will try to be more intentional about my personal learning, growth and exercising of brain power.”
