Dan Radecki is the chief scientific officer at the Academy of Brain-Based Leadership (ABL), as well as senior director of research and development at Allergan, where he serves as a global leader for multiple drug development programs. Dan holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology, a master’s degree in biopsychology, and a PhD in neuroscience. His extensive teaching experience includes instruction at the undergraduate, graduate, and medical school levels. Dan has worked in the corporate world for more than 20 years and his passion is in leveraging his knowledge of behavioral neuroscience to create an optimal model of leadership. In 2009 he created the content for the educational arm of the Neuroleadership Institute and served as the lead professor and advisor for the MS program in the neuroscience of leadership. This was the first program ever developed to incorporate cutting-edge neuroscience research into an optimal model of leadership. During the past five years, Dan has taught more than 400 leaders in 40 countries on the neuroscientific underpinnings of effective leadership. He recently extended this work and collaborated with colleagues in the leadership training space to help create ABL, which has taken a validated brain assessment and applied it to the field of leadership and teams. This has resulted in the only scientifically validated brain-based leadership assessment program available today.
