Helping You And Your Organization Design Outcomes in A Modern Marketplace.
BOLD Leadership Institute was formed because we believe the future belongs to those who are bold. We are transformational change experts. We know that lasting change does not happen without changing the environment, the culture, values, or giving serious consideration to what is going on in the brain of the person charged with leading the organization, or in your brain for that matter. Success doesn’t happen without changing the way we manage change. Let you brain lead the way!
Success requires strategic or tactical boldness. It means using evidenced based research to implement organizational change, to challenge the status-quo and outdated mode of operating. Success is defined differently for different people, but it will never be achieved without articulating your purpose or going through a process of discovery to enhance your impact as a leader in your own life.
The science of leadership asks you to dismiss flawed leadership models and unreliable evaluations of leadership potential. At BOLD Leadership Institute “we dare YOU to be bold”. Whether you are an emerging leader, a seasoned professional or an entrepreneur, we will show you how the brain works, how to promote desired outcomes, and—most importantly—how to apply scientific research into your personal life and your organization to shape and improve leadership competencies, strategy, operations, consumer preferences, emotional intelligence, team building, collaboration, goal setting, engagement, creativity, motivation, decision making and interpersonal interactions.
At BLI we are passionate about understanding the factors that affect behavioral change and individuals’ decision-making. With education and experience, improvements are seen overtime; influenced by nudges that have been validated through experimental evidence and cognitive neuroscience to help you perform at your best.

Our Founder’s Note
I was becoming increasing unhappy with the current state of leadership, the lack of women of colour in leadership positions, the biases in hiring and promotion, the same old management training and strategy approaches, and the disconnect between businesses and their corporate social responsibilities.
I have held senior positions in private, public and non-profits companies in telecommunications, healthcare, economic development, education and the criminal justice system. I have worked locally and internationally, in the USA, the Caribbean, Mexico, Africa and became just as jaded as the people I was consulting with.
Leadership is on life support but there’s light at the tunnel…
Talent is tired, stressed, disengaged, fleeing; a new approach is here…
Strategy has become more fluid and fast moving…
Innovation is changing everything; the future of work is more agile…
Behavioral science pushes you past the default or status quo; change is…
Scientific evidence is more powerful than dogma…
But thankfully, ‘the winds of change’ are here and whether we like it or not, there will be more overturned apple carts along the way. More people are bringing their breakthrough ideas to life by starting their own companies or seeking more purpose-driven work; new strategies are preparing the labour market for a new economy; more and more business leaders believe they can “do well” and “do good”; companies are leveraging neuroscience gaming and AI to identify, attract and retain the best people.
I know what success looks like- I have owned 3 successful companies, worked with others to turn their organizations around, advised on multigenerational workforce; and coached over 200 individuals to achieve personal and professional goals.
We have decided to take a different approach in our work by focusing on brain chemistry, psychology, and business to help YOU create sustainable behavioral change and success. By focusing on the science- leveraging neuroscience for impact and behavioral economics to nudge you to make the best decisions that are right for you.
