INSTITUTO DE EMPRESA. LEE NEWMAN

My mission is to use behavioral science to develop and deliver training programs and tools that allow people to perform at their best amid the daily challenges of the workplace.


Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.
— Mahatma Gandhi

I am a dean, professor, teacher, trainer, speaker, author, and educational entrepreneur.  

I currently serve as a Dean of IE's School of Human Sciences and Technology and Professor of Behavioral Science and Leadership at IE University and IE Business School in Madrid.  

Imagine an organization in which employees at all levels are able to out-think and out-behave the competition… literally, over and over again in the moments of every workday that matter most.  This is a company with a behavioral advantage, and my professional mission is to help individuals, teams and organizations achieve this type of advantage.

Experience.  Prior to my current roles, I served as an Engagement Manager with McKinsey & Company in Chicago and as a founder and senior manager in two technology-based start-ups in New York City (Brainstorm Interactive, and HR One).

Education.  I completed interdisciplinary doctoral studies at the University of Michigan combining Psychology (Cognition & Cognitive Neuroscience) and Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence). I also hold an MBA (M.I.T. Sloan), a Masters in Technology Policy (M.I.T. TPP), and a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering (Brown University).
