lao tzu versus napoleon

A completely different approach for leaders, Brain Compatible™ Leadership takes a thought-provoking look at executives' styles by brilliantly assessing the ongoing hidden conflict between labour and management and then teaches how to deal more effectively with those emerging characteristics.

Lise Tanguay Chowdhury has worked in an unusual, open and honest leadership environment where she applies her own failures and setbacks as leadership training to help work past the hierarchical minefields.

Lise illustrates a unique leadership model based on Lao Tzu versus Napoleon which focuses on a down to earth way of organizing around the work, not around processes causing human shortcomings. Here is a work philosophy based on the science of the reptilian brain and the great impact that can be created by this type of leadership transformation.

After 26 years in Human Resources Management and Leadership, it seemed like the human dimension was being cast aside in the name of standardization and hyper normalcy.   It was then that I decided to dedicate my doctorate thesis to:  Designing a Brain Compatible™ Organisation, Lao Tzu versus Napoleon.

Through my speaking engagements and consulting,  I continue to champion Brain Compatible™ principles and to advocate the democratization of leadership. Brain Compatible™ consulting and lectures are offered in both French and English.
