Knowledge that sets you apart.

LeadingAlive. is about connecting wholehearted, effective leadership and health through a neuroscience perspective.


LeadingAlive. addresses leaders and organisations who aspire to strengthen their leadership effectiveness whilst preserving individual as well as organisational health, who treat their employees as human beings rather than assets, and who run their businesses in an ethically responsible way.


LeadingAlive. is an evolving project, consisting of a series of highly interactive (self-)leadership workshops, that integrate evidence-based theory and practice from various emerging fields crucial to effective leadership, including neuroscience, 21st-century organisational development, and health.


LeadingAlive. is a cooperation of Hilde Eiselen, based in Ireland and the UK, and Christina Neuhoff, spice in presence, based in Cologne, Germany. 


​Hilde Eiselen works with career virtuosos. Her own career spans the executive and personal growth areas. With a background in psychology and an MBA from Trinity College, Dublin, she was for ten years CEO of the Trinity Institute of Management Education, a centre for international senior executive programmes. Before that she held executive management positions in multi-national corporations. Born in South Africa, Hilde has worked in 24 countries and lived in 6. She now owns an executive retreat in the Wicklow hills, not far from Dublin. This location facilitates Hilde’s work and research on the relationship between successful, sustained leadership and wellness. Choosing to live in Ireland, she can indulge her passion for people, deep love of nature and the outdoors.

„If you want a workshop that will resonate with you months afterwards, one that gives you practical tools to improve your life everyday, rather than just interesting theory; then the User's Guide to Your Brain course is for you. The techniques learned in the workshop are infectious and I use them with my team in work to operate mindfully and razor sharp effectively. We remember the neuroplasticity of our brains and that anything is possible especially if we don't entertain stress. For both work and play the workshop has reinforced to me that I am accountable for not burning out and that it's up to me to show up with a sparkle in all areas of my life.
Curious to learn more....then sign up and let Hilde and Tina teach you more.”
