In today's rapidly evolving world, Shaleen Kendrick is the architect of the Neuro-Relational Leadership™ model, which is the solution to creating cultures that are dynamically balanced, adaptive in function, and promote new emergent abilities in individuals, organizations, and societal systems.

Neuro-Relational Leadership™ is a cutting-edge model that merges neuroscientific understanding with Enneagram wisdom to create cultures where humans can grow, thrive, and evolve.


This interdisciplinary model can be practically applied across various contexts to create growth and emergent abilities in individuals, organizations, and societal systems. 


Neuro-Relational Leadership™ Creates Dynamically Balanced, Adaptive Cultures with Emergent Ability

Neuro-Relational Leadership™ (NRL™) understands the powerful link between our brains and our relationships. It recognizes that our biology is inherently wired for connection, and our relationships shape our mind, body, and spirit.

Does your culture merely get by, or does it thrive? Cultures that get by maintain the status quo, while cultures that thrive know how to create new, emergent, beneficial abilities within individuals, teams, and systems.


Many traditional ways of living and organizational structures can be rigid, resistant, or unable to change, and there can be a lack of cohesion, collaboration, and innovation. This can lead to stagnant environments where individuals, organizations, and societal systems are constrained and unable to reach their full potential.

Neuro-Relational Leadership™ solves this problem by providing an interdisciplinary, holistic approach to leadership that integrates insights from across disciplines. By understanding the connections between brain function, nervous system responses, and interpersonal neurobiology, leaders can now create environments where individuals are practically empowered to grow and thrive.

This model illuminates connections between brain function, nervous system responses, and interpersonal neurobiology to promote a profound understanding of biological and social behavior across various contexts. 


The Neuro-Relational Leadership™ model, supported by current scientific understanding, guides effective leadership by providing neuro-social-emotional education on how neuro-relational awareness impacts individuals, organizations, and societies.


NRL™ guides individuals, organizations, and societal systems in the transition from reactive survival mode to proactive thriving. 

By integrating humanity’s three intelligence centers—mental (mind), instinctual (body), and emotional (spirit)—in unique ways and with interdisciplinary insights, NRL™ creates dynamic balance, adaptive functioning, and new emergent ability.


This shift in focus enables individuals, organizations, and societal systems to respond effectively to ever-changing circumstances and seize new, evolving opportunities.

Embrace scientific insights and connections that synergize individuals, organizations, and societies.


Discover how the Neuro-Relational Leadership™ model cultivates growth, collaboration, and innovation for peak performance and endless possibilities.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

"Truly effective leaders are distinguished by a high degree of emotional intelligence, which includes self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill."
