Leadership is influence.

A team is not a group of people who work together. A team is a group of people who trust each other.

Organizations don’t transform. People do.


About Brainwave

Organizations are made up of people.  And people are driven by their values.  As simple as that.

When people can bring their values and passion to work, they will feel engaged and committed. Consistent research shows that when people are engaged, they perform better, and they excel. And when people excel, your business will experience growth and results.

At Brainwave, we believe that to succeed as a leader, you must find the common purpose and universal values of your team and organization. When you as a leader embrace and live your deepest held values, you will generate the trust needed to make your people excel, and your business succeed and sustain.

All leadership starts with self-awareness.  Authentic leadership can only be developed “inside – out”.  When you commit to evolving, results will follow.

Our values reflect what is important to us.  Who you are, what you hold dear, what upsets you and what underlies your decisions are all connected to your values.


Why Values Matter (more than ever)

At Brainwave, we believe that our individual values are behind our attitudes and behavior. We see a growing awareness and interest in the topic of “culture” as a source of competitive advantage among clients. What makes up the culture of an organization?


The Values-Driven Organization

Richard Barrett’s book “The Values-Driven Organization” gives not only insights into values-based leadership and how it enhances organizational performance. It also provides concrete tools and techniques for how to get there.
