Empowering Minds for a Better Tomorrow

Unleashing the power of brain science, the Life Ecology Organization (LEO) creates dynamic strategies for personal and professional growth.

Join us on our journey to promote resilience, innovation, and agility in an ever-evolving world.

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.

Our Extended Team: Though Dr. Raj is at the helm, LEO thrives on the collective expertise of our extended team. In our journey, we are supported by an extended team of talented consultants encompassing scientists, educators, storytellers, and thought leaders. 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.


How LEO Works

We focus on bridging the gap between our brain's survival instincts and the complexities of our modern world. Through interactive workshops and engaging activities, we help participants develop emotional resilience and a 'growth' mindset, leading to better mental health and higher work performance.

LEO teaches simple yet powerful “brain hacks” to stop negative patterns and promote resilience and mastery. These Brain Hacks help us to understand, control, and adapt our own brains. Thought-provoking activities reinforce these new neural pathways to achieve rapid transformation. The table below provides some of the brain hacks we teach and how they are organized. 


Measuring Success

As a fully science-based platform, we don’t just think the LEO program works. We’ve hypothesized, tested, and collected conclusive data showing that these evidence-based methods work, not just in one group but in every group that has completed the workshop. Participants will start to benefit within an hour, and we can teach champions within your organization to help sustain and build the practices after the program ends.

Participant survey results before and after the LEO workshop (data represents nearly 300 participants). Percentage reporting at least half their days affected by the following concerns: Depression, Sleep Issues, Energy Issues, Eating Issues and Anxiety.


To calculate the ROI of the LEO program, we used our cumulative survey results showing a 42% drop in depression and 40% improvement in sleep among LEO workshop participants. We then factored in published estimates of their impact on workplace productivity, with yearly organizational costs per person of $5,000-$6,000 for depression and $2,000 for sleep. This gives LEO workshops an ROI of $3,000–$3,500 per person per year based on just these two parameters. 

By fostering a culture of agility and adaptability, the LEO program helps organizations address issues such as poor engagement, depression, anxiety, stress, and low productivity, creating a direct, positive financial impact.

Our Impact

We've helped thousands of people change their lives through our workshops, webinars, and keynotes across the country. Through LEO, change at the neurological level isn't just possible—it's achievable and sustainable.
