Who We Are
When Fortune 500 companies take on a major change initiative, it can produce some of the most gut-wrenching experiences in the business; but it can also create defining moments for an organization. Noesis exists to help companies-in-transformation with applied neuroleadership.
Founded in 2009, Noesis is the only training and consulting firm of its kind that helps leaders and companies translate neuroscience into practical leadership behaviours. We respond directly to the fundamental obstacles of transformation, which are largely 100,000 year old reflexes of the brain.
Through well-designed and widely implemented training programs, business leaders and their teams can respond to change initiatives with clarity, insight and resilience, rather than risking their transformation projects to instinctive responses that don’t serve the organization.
