The programme is based around 11 core leadership attributes and was launched in Australia in 2017 by DBD parent Kaplan.

ELEVEN, one of the world’s leading neuroscience and behaviour-based executive leadership programmes, was launched at Dublin Business School last night.

The programme was created for executive leaders based on world-renowned research in psychology and neuroscience.

The event took place in the EPIC Museum at the CHQ Building, where guests heard from the creator of the ELEVEN Leadership Programme and behavioural scientist Milo-Arne Wilkinson and mentalist Keith Barry.

“Business leadership has evolved and those who lead must evolve with it”

The programme is based around 11 core leadership attributes and was launched in Australia in 2017 by DBD parent Kaplan. Guests on the night got to explore the ELEVEN attributes of extraordinary leadership.

The growing demands and challenges within modern organisations mean there is an appetite for something new to enhance the careers of today’s leaders.

Dublin Business School, Ireland’s largest independent third level college with more than 9,000 students, has conducted extensive research into leadership programmes in Ireland and, coupled with DBS’s extensive experience in the field, they have identified a gap in the traditional executive education space – that of emotional intelligence.

“ELEVEN brings together both Irish and global thought leaders from the areas of psychotherapy, psychology and business leadership to create something truly innovative and unique”

Behavioural scientist Milo-Arne Wilkinson, who is travelling over to Dublin from Australia, will be taking attendees through their paces and challenging beliefs when it comes to business leadership.

“Business leadership has evolved and those who lead must evolve with it. This programme is designed to make leaders the best they can be,” she said. “ELEVEN brings together both Irish and global thought leaders from the areas of psychotherapy, psychology and business leadership to create something truly innovative and unique.”

Cliona O’Beirne, director of marketing and admissions from Kaplan and Dublin Business School added, “Dublin Business School is delighted to be the first in Europe to welcome this innovative leadership programme. We pride ourselves on world class executive education and the ELEVEN programme is a fantastic addition to our portfolio of programmes.”

ELEVEN leverages the latest research in behavioural science to deliver a suite of programmes designed to unleash potential and create extraordinary leaders. Centred on the development of specific behavioural and adaptive thinking abilities through targeted, interactive and experiential modules, ELEVEN is designed to achieve real and sustained behavioural change.

Developed by a group of neuroscientists, psychologists, psychotherapists and executive coaches, involving over 900 interviews with executive leaders, the ELEVEN leadership programme is centred on attributes instead of competencies and utilises multisensory adaptive learning specifically designed to provide real and sustained behavioural change.
