Dr. Alan Watkins is an honorary senior lecturer in neuroscience and psychological medicine at Imperial College, London and an affiliate professor of leadership at the European School of Management, London.
He is the CEO of Complete Coherence , a consultancy that brings the latest approaches from neuroscience, physiology and systems theory to the human performance challenges faced by business leaders and sportspeople around the world. Alan’s strong desire to share more widely the benefits of this approach led him to write “Coherence – The Secret Science of Brilliant Leadership” (Kogan Page, 2013).
Alan’s work has focused on coaching CEOs and the neuroscience in the boardroom: How do we decide what we decide? How do we make better decisions? When working with individual leaders, he often tracks a person’s physiology for 24 hours, covering a normal working day. Insights from this monitoring guide transformational leadership and personal development.
In addition to working extensively with executive teams in organisations, Alan has also worked with the GB Rowing squad prior to the London Olympics and continues to provide guidance to the coaches and crews in preparation for Rio 2016.
