About Brain Potential

Leadership Training powered by neuroscience

The Brain Potential Story

After years of attending many short courses on neuroscience and related behaviours, Jan Sky undertook study at CHC Brisbane in Applied Neuroscience.  She graduated in 2020 with a strong desire to develop a training and coaching program specifically for leaders based in neuroscience.

Jan’s 30 years of training in the corporate space had highlighted the need for leaders to understand neuroscience as a basis for growth and skill development.

Increasing your brain potential equates to great awareness of self and others making it easier to engage with others at a deeper level and identify and develop future leaders.

The inclusion of coaching alongside learning will not only ensure you apply your knowledge but will help you to include your learnings into your workplace benefitting your team in many ways.

“At Brain Potential we turn the complex into simple so performance levels soar”
