About The LEO Program and Our Story

The Life Ecology Organization (LEO) was founded in 2014 by Dr. Niraj (Raj) Nijhawan. Combining his expertise in healthcare and passion for brain science, Raj established LEO with a mission to improve performance and wellbeing in our fast-paced world.

Each one brings their unique expertise and insights to the table, contributing to the diverse range of perspectives that makes our program so effective.


Our mission is simple: we want to help create work communities that are engaging, effective, and ready to face today's challenges. Through our unique approach, we help participants become more resilient and productive, using evidence-based strategies for success and happiness.
