The Neuroscience of Leadership Development

This research report explores the topic of leadership development in relation to how leaders learn and how the body’s response to challenge and stress can improve cognitive performance. The aim of this current research was to explore this proposition using Ashridge Business School’s highly experiential The Leadership Experience (TLE) programme. The design of this programme was based on research which explored what Board-level leaders know now that they wished they’d known ten years ago. Their insights were used to develop an intensive leadership simulation that takes participants through a series of these critical incidents and allows them to experience the emotional roller-coaster associated with them in a safe and supportive environment. The objective was to resource participants to cope better with the leadership challenges they may end up facing in the future.
