“To accomplish the ‘impossible,’ the rules have changed. Now it’s about the chemistry of the brain and whose neurons fire fastest and best in changing conditions.”

– John Kao, M.D., Ph.D

We are living at a special moment in human history when neuroscience and technology are making the seemingly “impossible” possible, and where the most important battle in life and work is not to fit n or get by but to unlock every bit of your true potential.

Sometimes your brain is on your side in this battle, but often it isn’t. Built for different times and different situations than you deal with today, it sends you messages—which you often don’t even realize you are getting—that can cause you to back off when you should be stepping forward, be distracted when you want to pay attention, play small even when the opportunities are big, and think poorly when you want to be thinking at your best.

Neuroscience discoveries are upending conventional thinking about the structure and function of the brain and nervous system in learning, performance, relationships, adaptability, creativity and leadership—and are showing better ways to accomplish more of what matters. No speaker has higher global ratings in the field of neuroscience and leadership than Robert Cooper, Ph.D. (see the 7-page PDF titled “Independent Ratings & Endorsements”).

 

In a survey of leaders and professionals from more than 90 organizations, Cooper’s work was compared to 20 widely known leadership authorities and top speakers. Cooper rated highest on every scale, including value, usefulness, applicability, delivery, and overall results. In an independent rating by the Global Senior Management Interchange, the value of Cooper’s work was rated at 4.9 out of 5.0.

His research on the new neuroscience of high performance is drawn from three distinctive sources:

  • Cooper Strategic’ s work with thousands of leaders and professionals in hundreds of organizations in dozens of industries and fields
  • Findings from his research team of 72 colleagues that scours hundreds of the latest neuroscience studies and applications every day, and regularly examines a range of behavior-change research metrics, including findings from a database with more than a million top performers; testing these methods and keeping and improving the most useful ones while discarding the ones that don’t pay off
  • Our up-close work with more than two hundred leaders tracking their weekly challenges, improvements, and breakthroughs across a 12-month timeframe

Cooper’s commitment in every customized, interactive, application-oriented presentation is to design and deliver unprecedented access to leading-edge discoveries, tools and tactics that are immediately practical, testable and tailorable to individual and organization goals—and unlock peak capacity not just to improve but to thrive.

RECOMMENDERS

The New Neuroscience of How Recommenders Can Exponentially Grow Your Brand and Business

A ten-year research project has revealed that one of the most powerful driving forces of profitable, difference-making organizational success has been inadvertently overlooked—and these findings are reinventing not only marketing but also leadership. This is the first evidence-based neuroscience exploration of the quiet power of recommenders®—more than half of whom may not be your customers or frequent buyers—who invest a piece of their time and life without pay to recommend your offerings to individuals they care about and, as a result, they are the single most powerful overlooked force in increasing both innovation and sales. The data show that recommenders can create far greater impact and value to any enterprise than influencers, promoters, likes, fans, customers and followers combined. When recommenders are engaged, the customer acquisition cost is 1/10th the cost of traditional advertising, sales and marketing. The lifetime value of one active recommender? 4,700% of a single significant sale. Now, for the first time, your organization can quickly learn, apply and measure how to identify, understand, engage and multiply your recommenders.
