LEADING WITH SUBSTANCE
A NEW WAY TO THINK ABOUT LEADERSHIP

LEADING WITH SUBSTANCE

A NEW WAY
TO THINK ABOUT LEADERSHIP

Our programs are based on neuroscience.

Discoveries, particularly in the area of social cognitive neuroscience, provide us with a fact-based, deeper understanding of how relationships are built and broken; how emotions impact us and how to better communicate with each other. We can use this new knowledge to our benefit.

Powerful conversation occurs when you
combine what we now know about the human brain with the skills of coaching, and tune into our intuition. We define a powerful conversation as one where

‘both parties leave the conversation with
different thinking than they came’

…a conversation that has been insightful and useful, and that influences a change in thinking or behaviour – and that takes skill.

Neuroscience of Leadership

rewiring the way humans think, lead and behave

Our Programs

We deliver programs in five key areas

NeuroCONVERSATIONS

Using Neuroscience to have conversations that count.

Investing in developing the skill of powerful, effective and useful conversation is a critical part of leadership development

NeuroTEAMS
Developing Leaders who understand and value the impact they can make by taking a coaching approach to creating high performing and high functioning teams
NeuroPERFORMANCE

High Performance collaboration for high performing teams.

Use a brain-based (evidence-based) approach to achieving the following:

  • Operating from a growth mindset
  • Embracing feedback
  • Engaging in High Performance Conversations
NeuroBRAINS
One of the big neuroscience discoveries of recent times is that our brains are plastic – you may have heard the term neuroplasticity – and what has been of most interest is just how very differently we are wired – much more than we previously believed.

This program is designed to help you to discover and understand your own brain wiring at a deeper level, and to understand that in fact, you are in control of how your brain can change and develop in the future – we call it self-directed neuroplasticity – you have the power to change your brain.

NeuroLEADERS

Leading Through Times of Change

This program gives you a new framework to have the confidence to EXPERIMENT with new ways of engaging and communicating, and to DIAGNOSE the human behaviour that is getting in the way of great performance and great relationships.

This will ensure you can PRESCRIBE more useful.

Coaching & Mentoring

Coaching and Mentoring is a proven tool in leadership development. It delivers results by increasing effectiveness, building effective relationships and empowering individuals and teams to reach their personal and organisational goals.

The benefits of coaching include:

Increased productivity and work performance

Improved business management,

Improved time management,

Better team effectiveness,

Increased self-awareness and self-confidence,

Accountability and responsibility,

Better relationships, and

More effective communication.

Our Philosophy

Leading Humans is a coaching, mentoring and leadership development company founded by Michelle Loch. We use practical neuroscience to improve leadership performance and are passionate about creating leading humans who are masterful at leading humans!

We work with individuals and organisations that value and invest in their people, because we believe that people matter. We believe that people are amazing. And we believe that things can be done to enhance that ‘amazing’.

Our expertise is in the neuroscience of leadership. This emerging discipline takes recent discoveries in neuroscience, particularly social cognitive neuroscience, and applies them in a practical way to the discipline of
leadership. What we find is that when you teach people about how the human brain works, they become better leaders of both themselves and of others.

All our programs are underpinned by this new science and we find that this helps the leaders we work with
understand ‘why’ they need to change the way they think and behave, leading to greater sustainable success.

Who we work with

Michelle has been a breath of fresh air to our organisation and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any organisation looking to positively impact on the way their management performs and teams respond

Matthew Magin

Chief Executive Officer, Burdekin Shire Council

Michelle exemplifies and models what she teaches, so I was completely immersed in the quality learning experience. Working with Michelle to deepen my knowledge, and refine my skills to a new level of self-awareness has ignited a more nuanced approach to leading others to new ways of thinking. I am so excited about the learning continuing as it enhances the work I do every day.

You need more people focused on the the right things more of the time, powerful conversations are the most sophisticated technology you have for getting things done
