Five Brain Leadership by Carlos Davidovich

Five Brain Leadership

How Neuroscience Can Help You Master Your Instincts and Build Better Teams

Carlos Davidovich, MD, with Jennifer Elizabeth Brunton, PhD

Lead smarter. A handbook for your brain at work.

High pressure. High conflict. High stress. Today, too many leaders believe that these states are not just natural, but inevitable. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Using his skills as a medical doctor and his knowledge from many years in executive positions in the biotech pharmaceutical industry, in Five Brain Leadership, executive coach Carlos Davidovich walks you through the latest breakthroughs in the burgeoning fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, and cognitive behavior to help you better understand your multilayered, magical mind, and how to work with it instead of against it in leading your team and building relationships.

Neuromanagement is at the intersection of neuroscience and daily life in the business world. It is leadership that is based on a full understanding of all five of our interlocking brains—our reptilian, emotional, rational, and, yes, even our heart and gut “brains.” Through practical tools and exercises, you’ll learn how to build your capacity in each of these control centers, and to recognize all the ways they are at play in how humans operate, interrelate, and react to change.

Five-Brain Leadership is your pathway toward turning good leadership into great leadership, and reaching new levels of success in all of life’s domains.


“Practical techniques and tools to become your best self-aware leader, no matter what challenges you face.”

“For any leader who wants to dive deep into understanding the power of our brain and how we can use this power to be the leader who we aspire to be.”
