LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT COURSES & COACHING
B.Cognition Labs teaches leadership development courses that include individual coaching to help mid- and high-level leaders develop skills to lead and thrive. We help leaders shift from leadership as an individual to leadership as a contextual and social act of empowering, enabling, and adapting.
We look at leadership and adult development holistically and with empathy, to help leaders develop their skills and create an organization that values human beings, not just efficient processes.
Most of the time, people evaluate situations in a quick, analytical way. Psychologist Abraham Maslow studied people who seemed sophisticated and advanced in their humanity.
He believed these people had a way of knowing things in a different way, which he called B-Cognition, which encompasses empathy, and radiates love, joy, contentedness, and acceptance.
