About Dr. Leaf
Dr. Caroline Leaf is a cognitive neuroscientist with a PhD in Communication Pathology. Since the early 1980‘s she has studied and researched the Mind-Brain connection. During her years in clinical practice as a Communication Pathologist she developed tools and processes that have transformed the lives of patients with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and released the potential of thousands of young students and adults.
She has presented her unique Switch On Your Brain with the 5-Step Learning Process® and the Metacognitive-Map™ learning tool to more than 100,000 students worldwide.
She developed the Geodesic Learning™ theory (brain-compatible learning) that has been conservatively shown to increase academic performance by 35-75%. This revolutionary theory explains the Science of Thought, stating that everything you do is first a thought in the you physical brain. You think, and then you do, which cycles back to the original thought, changing it, and the thoughts connected to it, in a dynamic interrelationship. Therefore if your thinking is toxic, then your communications and actions are toxic, and vice versa.
She has published articles in academic journals and consumer magazines and has been widely interviewed in newspapers, on radio shows, and on television shows about her research and theories.
She frequently lectures to both Christian and secular audiences worldwide, linking scientific principles of the brain to intellectual and emotional issues in simple and practical ways. She speaks on diverse topics relating to optimal brain performance, including:
- Thinking and learning
- Controlling your thought life
- Managing stress
- Eradicating toxic thoughts
- Overcoming mental, emotional, and spiritual strongholds
- Understanding male and female brain differences
- Applying wisdom
- Identifying your unique gifts
