Atlanta, GA (July 11, 2017) – Turknett Leadership Group announces Joshua A. Turknett, M.D. is joining Turknett Leadership Group as a Principal Consultant, leading the firm’s foray into the neuroscience of leadership and learning.


Dr. Turknett is a board-certified neurologist who has practiced in the Atlanta area for the past twelve years. He is also a clinical researcher, best-selling author, musician, and the founder of Brainjo, a company that uses the science of learning and neuroplasticity to create optimized learning systems.


Dr. Turknett received his B.S. in neuroscience from Wesleyan University and his M.D. from Emory University School of Medicine. He is medical editor of the Journal of Evolution and Health and is a leading voice in the ancestral health movement.


With over two decades of experience in the field of cognitive and behavioral neuroscience, Dr. Turknett now brings that expertise to the Turknett Leadership Group team to integrate behavioral neuroscience into TLG’s existing services and develop credible, neuroscience-driven learning solutions based on the Brainjo Method. Dr. Turknett will lead the incorporation of the neuroscience of learning into coaching programs, assessment, and culture change processes, and will help assure that leadership development programs, whether individual, classroom-based, or web-based, result in “learning that sticks.”


He is also partnering with TLG to create the Turknett Center for Elite Cognition, a new initiative to develop comprehensive programs for optimizing cognitive performance, creativity, and idea generation at both the individual and organizational level. As artificial intelligence becomes more important and pervasive, companies that thrive will be those that maximize their collective human intelligence and uniquely human capabilities.


Dr. Turknett, an Atlanta native, is the son of Bob and Lyn Turknett, co-founders of Turknett Leadership Group. He lives in Roswell, Georgia, with his wife and two children.
