Dr. Sahar Yousef

Neuroscientist & Founder ❘ Becoming Superhuman
Faculty ❘ UC Berkeley Haas School of Business

Dr. Sahar Yousef and Professor Lucas Miller are both cognitive neuroscientists, as well as the youngest faculty at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business.  They teach one of the most popular MBA classes, called “Becoming Superhuman: The Science of Productivity and Performance” and have been featured in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, and Business Insider.

Outside of the academic world, Sahar and Lucas co-run “Becoming Superhuman”, a training and consulting firm which teaches busy professionals who think for a living how to get their most important work done, in less time, with less stress.

Using rigorously-tested scientific tools, they empower each person in a team to work in a way that is aligned with their biology, instead of against it.  Everything they offer companies was discovered and incubated in their home laboratory, tested and refined among their MBA students, and thoroughly vetted inside high-performing teams in high-pressure industries.
