Eileen loves to show people how they inadvertently deplete and can deliberately energize their brains, particularly when they are at work. She has over 25 years of experience teaching thinking and interpersonal skills in the workplace. Recently she tapped into the most up to date knowledge on brain research to write a book called, Get More Power from Your Brain.
She keeps up to date on how insights from neuroscience are being applied to leadership development in the Fortune 1000 companies through her membership of the NeuroLeadership Institute in New York. These case studies form the basis of her monthly newsletters and course content.

As a lifelong learner whose teaching philosophy is deeply rooted in adult education theory, Ute most identifies with Kolb’s (1984) Experiential Learning Theory. Her life has given her diverse perspectives. Ute explored many cultures and countries and she has also experienced diverse academic disciplines and professional roles.
The ability to look at situations from diverse perspectives facilitates Ute's teaching. She shares stories of experiences that have led her to deeply reflect, seek understanding, learn, practice her new understanding, make mistakes, and start over.
Ute's constant critical reflection on her experiences aims at learning for continuous personal and professional growth.
Ute holds a Bachelor of Arts (Econ) from Heidelberg University in Germany, a Master in Business Administration from Dalhousie University, and is a candidate in the Master of Education (Lifelong Learning) program at Mount Saint Vincent University.
