Power Politics and Pressure Workshops

Our workshops are tailormade to reflect the issues that are arising in your specific business context.We look at the neuroscience of how the brain responds to ‘in groups’ and ‘out groups’ in the workplace.

We explore the subtle yet important male- female neurobiological differences in relation to power and pressure and how these show up in politics. Through our interactive workshops we help leaders and teams arrive at productive solutions.

Who we work with

Mindbridge works with a range of leaders forging the way at some of the world's largest companies.

Business leadership

Neurosmart™ was completely different – there’s nothing else like it out there in terms of diversity training programmes. Companies have a tendency to always put people into boxes, whereas neurosmart™ helps you understand the difference between people and the thinking you need to draw on everyone’s strengths.

More about our services


When leaders understand the neuroscience to help them as individuals and their teams reduce stress, they can then create conditions to enable the brain’s highly powerful cortex to work at its best. The neurosmart™ programme gives leaders the tools to help achieve this.

multi media workshops

Multi-media delivery

Our workshop programs are tailor made not just in terms of content but also format and the media we employ to deliver them. Digital media can be used in all kinds of ways to make the workshop more, powerful, inclusive and convenient.

Our workshops and content is made to be delivered in person or using online media in a virtual space or even some mix of the two.

More about digital media in our workshops

  • We can use digital media as part of our real world workshop to increase engagement or where it’s the very best way to display an idea.
  • Many of the teams we work with are spread across countries or even continents. We can have real world workshops but include virtual participants joining us into the room.
  • Where the workshop is best suited to being fully virtual, you’ll find we’ve become very effective at reaching out and including all participants in the session to get the very best from web-based workshops.

I have developed models of applied neuroscience in action. These have been tried and tested with busy leaders.

Kate Lanz, CEO of Mindbridge A purple background glow

My vision is to build brain-friendly working environments. I want to help leaders understand the power of igniting the neuro-chemistry that causes people’s brains to thrive. This enables them to be a positive influence on motivation and performance through the application of modern neuroscience.

At Mindbridge, we partner carefully and closely – we build long-term relationships and provide a safe environment to explore challenges and issues. By doing so, we are able to get close to the people and the culture of the organisation we’re working with, and can then provide a bespoke, focused and relevant approach.
