A cohesive theory for leading and landing lasting, positive change in individuals, teams, and organizations as fast as humanly possible—from the inside out—in order to adapt to the outside-in changes in our complex, disrupted, and crisis-hit world.

Bio-Transformation® is underpinned by the latest brain, behavior, and complexity science integrated with trauma-informed therapies and wisdom and practices from the contemplative and embodiment traditions.

A Coherent Theory & Map of Human Transformation

30 years in the making, Bio-Transformation® seeks to unlock the blueprint of how to best lead and land lasting transformations in people and the teams, organizations, and systems we humans co-create. We do this by harnessing game-changing advances in brain, behavioral, and complexity science; integrate them with timeless wisdom and practices from the great contemplative traditions; and then push and push to find workable and practical simplicity within radical complexity.

All our consulting processes, leadership programs, transformative circles and teamwork engagements, capacity-building programs, courses, tools, toolkits, and content are powered by the results of this work: a brain-based yet heart-led pathway, toolset, and practice-set to empower leaders to transform relationships, communities, organizations, institutions, and systems—and so they regenerate our crisis-hit world.

Biodynamic & Regenerative

Bio-Transformation® or Bio-T® sees human beings—and the teams, organizations, communities, and societies we co-create—as complex, living, adaptive systems rather than as mechanistic, linear, and algorithmic machines.

Complex and adaptive living systems do not change like machines or lines of code do. Our messy but brilliant human biologies are alive: constantly sensing, seeking, and adapting in real time.
We evolved a highly-tuned and extraordinarily complex physiology and psychology that allows us to adapt to emerging ecological pressures and changes in our environment so we both survive and thrive in constantly-shifting systems. All species, all people, all organizations, and all societies evolve over time in a dynamic interplay with nature.
Therefore we cannot master the change of human beings or human systems without understanding, as best we can, how biologies—hearts, minds, nerves, emotions, beliefs, habits—change. Bio-T® unifies the best of specific and focused disciplines into a broad yet deep theory and philosophy of change.

Works From Cell to System

Bio-Transformation® is a cohesive, coherent, and comprehensive methodology for rapidly and effectively transforming our toughest problems at any level of magnification—from complex leadership problems to complex societal challenges.

At the level of everyday leadership and life problems, BTTP contains a step-by-step pathway and set of practical exercises to help you transform chronic emotional pain and trauma, persistent negative thoughts, stress and overwhelm, personal and family crises, relationship breakdowns, and major leadership challenges.
At the level of leadership and team development, BTTP contains a developmental framework and leadership curriculum that seeks to accelerate and amplify your natural evolution as an individual towards ever-higher degrees of transformational capability—by accelerating the development of both your cognitive complexity and embodied wisdom—so you can take on and solve ever-more complex problems in your life, family, community, organization, and system.
At the level of business units and organizations, BTTP contains a pathway and toolset for resolving intrapersonal and interpersonal conflicts, confusions, and breakdowns that are blocking necessary business transformation and organizational change, enabling you as a leader to break through the barriers that are stopping you and your organization from finding a more adaptive and future-forward set of business models, structures, strategies, and team cultures; and a transformational innovation process and toolset for identifying future models and transitioning to them.
At the level of systems, BTTP contains a detailed, human-centric framework for understanding the dynamics of a system and a systemic transformation process to adapt to evolutionary pressures and becomes more complex and regenerative; how and why barriers to inevitable and necessary adaptive changes are arising (usually a complex mix of historic trauma, diminishing addictions, outdated belief systems, conflicting values, archaic processes, obsolete regulations and legal frameworks, and outmoded structures); and how you as a systemic/societal leader can unleash transformation across networks from the inside out—starting with changing yourself.

Multilevel or “Fractal” Framework

Bio-Transformation® combines, into one coherent method, tools and techniques that cover the four elements of human being: felt senses, emotions, beliefs, and behaviors.

Behaviors & processes/protocols: BTTP draws on heuristics research, behavioral economics, behavioral psychology, sociology, anthropology, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies (CBT), cultural anthropology, rapid-change coaching, growth hacking, commercial advertising/mass behavior change, and persuasion research to help you break destructive habits, rewire nervous systems and social systems, redesign life, leadership, and systemic behaviors—turning inspiration for change into concrete action.
Beliefs & strategies/policies: BTTP draws on brain research, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, continental philosophy, linguistics, psychotherapy, evolutionary theory, mind reprogramming, hypnotherapy, deep ecology, ethnography, indigenous wisdom, narrative theory, story editing, systems thinking, complexity science, regenerative design, design thinking, and mass mindset change to help you and your people relinquish outdated assumptions, break through disempowering and obsolete beliefs, and re-invent language patterns, stories, strategies, and plans to forge the future
Emotions & culture: BTTP draws on affective (emotional) neuroscience, emotional intelligence, interpersonal neurobiology, wisdom traditions (Zen, Advaita Vedanta, Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism, Dzogchen, Taoism, Shamanism, Ife, Stoicism etc.), Imago Relationship Therapy, attachment theory, art and sound therapies, voice dialoguing, yoga philosophies, and flow research to help you transform persistent moods (anxiety, stress, depression), build confidence, courage and conscious awareness, and repair relationships with others so everyone can flourish
Felt senses & systemic harmonics: BTTP draws on interoceptive science, somatic practices and trauma therapies (yoga, shamanism, movement medicine, tantra, breathwork, meditation, brainspotting, craniosacral therapy), embodied cognition theories, psychedelic research, elite sports coaching, and transpersonal therapy to help you transform trauma, heal wounds, and reorganize around interconnection and collective coherence.

Theory and Practice

Bio-Transformation® is woven from the very best scientific knowledge and theory unified with concrete and embodied practices from the contemplative traditions, trauma-informed therapies, and coaching.

Bio-T® purposefully brings together the latest science of brain networks, behavioral economics, cognitive psychology, complex systems, and affective neuropsychology; and meticulously triangulates it with essential wisdom from Eastern and Western philosophies, contemplative sciences, and indigenous wisdom.
As it is focused on making positive, breakthrough, lasting change happen fast, Bio-T® contains a suite of change ‘hacks’ from fast-growth entrepreneurship, social activism, mass mindset and behavior change (e.g. advertising and behavioral economics), performance and breakthrough coaching, and disruptive innovation—as well as many embodied practices for rewiring and reorganizing the body from trauma therapies, healing modalities, and mindfulness/meditation and movement disciplines.
With over 90 organizational transformation tools and 40 individual leadership and wisdom practices, Bio-T® supports positive change at any scale. 

The 8 Principles of Bio-Transformation®

Bio-T® has at its core 8 elemental principles for mastering transformation in ourselves, our organizations, and our systems. Together, they help accelerate the journey of mastering the science, craft, and wisdom of being truly transformational.

The 8 principles provide an integrated framework that can be applied inside a relationship, a team or family unit, a business unit or company culture, or an entire social system.
We explicitly connect the work of personal development to the work of organizational, systemic, and societal development: making positive change happen in the world.

The History & Development of BTTP

The co-creators of Bio-Transformation®, Nick Seneca Jankel and Alison McAulay, have spent 12+years integrating the results of their own individual attempts to crack the code of transformation.

Nick Jankel is a Cambridge-educated medic, historian and philosopher of science, systemic change explorer, disruptive innovation expert, leadership theorist and developer (and TV transformation coach—BBC, MTV). 
Alison McAulay is a former US elite gymnast and contemporary choreographer, trauma therapist, craniosacral therapist, yoga teacher, social entrepreneur, embodied transformation coach, theorist, and embodied leadership expert.
As business partners, life partners, co-parents, and co-theorists, they have codified Bio-Transformation®—evolving and unfolding as it is—into a framework to unlock human and societal development that integrates the latest science, timeless wisdom, and holistic principles that focuses on driving real-world change from the inside out.
