The i4 model features brain and body processes that are often forgotten in leadership and organisations. These include inspiration, intuition, imagination and the integration of healthy brain functions.

Applications of this innovative brain-based model and tool include:

  • Leadership development
  • Talent selection

The i4 Neuroleader tools are competency-based assessments that measure a set of abilities, traits, attitudes and behaviours which can easily be self-assessed as well as observed and rated by others. The set of capabilities featured in the i4 Neuroleader Model can unlock anyone’s potential to succeed as a leader in any endeavour. The expanded i4 model shows the four key competencies and sixteen underpinning pillars.
