Neuroleadership refers to the application of findings from neuroscience to the field of leadership.[1] The term neuroleadership was first coined by David Rock[2] in the US publication Strategy+Business.[3] Since then, according the Australian Financial Review[4] "it has entered the vocabulary faster than you can say brainwave." NeuroLeadership is an emerging field of study focused on bringing neuroscientific knowledge into the areas of leadership development, management training, change management, education, consulting and coaching.


Neuroleadership is not without its critics.[5] They question whether having scientific brain data to back up what was commonly believed adds any value. Yet, advocates assert that neuroleadership provides a scientific basis and language to management studies that managers can relate to. Further, they believe that the relatively young field of neuroscience will continue to reveal new insights into how to lead effectively.
