Silvia Damiano's scientific background and curiosity about the human brain led her to a decade long journey of research into optimal brain functioning and the application of neuroscience in leadership and daily life. Her past and current roles have uniquely prepared her for the current undertaking, that of leadership activist & change agent.
She has a passionately held belief, that leaders in our 21st century global economy and their organisations must radically change long-held ideas of what constitutes effective leadership. In her ground-breaking book, Silvia provides both compelling evidence, the case for change and then a path forward for leaders to embrace a new leadership model - the i4 Neuroleader.
Silvia is the creator, thought leader and master trainer of the i4 Neuroleader Model, Assessment Tools & Methodology, founding The About my Brain Institute with the purpose of democratising leadership & neuroscience.
2017 i4 Tales Conference Topic: A Resilient Brian in a Digital Economy In the past 10 years, educational institutions have shifted the focus to build digital skills to better prepare the next generation workforce. Building our digital capability is not only about knowing how to live surrounded by technology but also about how to develop our internal resourcefulness and adaptability so we can face a world that constantly changes. Shrugging off the uncertainty caused by the speed of change requires knowing how to maintain a healthy state of mind and how to truly connect with those who can support us through the up’s and down’s of this digital economy.
