6 Integration Workshops and Q+As

Neuroscience fundamentally changes the way you coach

Coaching can bring about profound transformation. You know this.

There are those sessions when you see a client’s life change before your eyes. They break through the block that’s been limiting them for years, and you can see the glimmers of their true power. They tap into their own wisdom—wisdom you could see, but that was hidden from them.

But then there are those sessions where nothing seems to shift. No matter what you try—what angle you come from—it just doesn’t get into the core of the issue.

What’s the difference?

You may feel like you approached them with the same mindset, used the same basic principles, but something is fundamentally different. What is it?

Now, we are beginning to truly understand why.

Through decades of revolutionary research, neuroscience can tell us what happens in the brain and body when different coaching techniques are used.

These discoveries are transforming the practice of coaching. Neuroscience shows why a number of our “tried and true” methods fail. It shows us the ways we’re inadvertently sabotaging our own coaching work. It shows us how to guide our clients away from stress and closed-mindedness, and into positive learning states that allow genuine change to occur.

We know the immense benefits of this field of wisdom, and we know that by adding these tools to your practice, you can affect even more change in your clients and in the world.

So we’ve created an in-depth online training—the first of its kind—featuring the world’s top neuroscientific coaches and experts, who will show you how to work with your clients using this powerful body of knowledge.

This training will enable you to…

  • Discover why some traditional coaching techniques actually inhibit change, and what we can do instead.
  • Guide yourself into the neural state most conducive to deep intuition and clarity, so you can consistently create breakthrough sessions with your clients
  • Equip your coaching toolbox with techniques validated by neuroscientific research, so you can create positive change in each person you work with

This knowledge can transform your coaching practice. In fact, implementing the principles of neuroscience has the potential to be as transformative for you as it is for your clients.

You’ll no longer wonder whether each session will bring about true change. Rather, you’ll have the humble confidence that you’re doing exactly what you need to do in order to open your clients to their deepest wisdom.

Join us for The Neuroscience of Change.

How the Neuroscience of Change training works

The Neuroscience of Change is a 15-week online coach training.

It’s designed to take you deep into the world of neuroscientific coaching, equipping you with powerful change technologies proven by research.

Each session is live, so you’ll have the opportunity to interact in real time with the esteemed faculty for the training. Of course, everything is recorded and downloadable, so you can watch on your own schedule, and come back to the material again and again for deeper learning.

Here’s how it works…

  • The 16 core workshops are generally weekly, for 90 minutes on Zoom, They include a teaching lecture, followed by Q&A.
  • There will be 3 dedicated Q+A sessions of 60 minutes during the program where you can ask any extra questions you have.
  • And you’ll have the opportunity to deepen your learning with workbooks, transcripts, and 3 special integration workshops where we’ll use Zoom breakout groups for deep discussion and practice.

Like all our courses, The Neuroscience of Change is carefully designed to help you explore this powerful coaching methodology during an integrated learning journey.

Each workshop brings in new, critical skills that build on the previous material. Rather than a series of unconnected workshops that require you to knit them together yourself, this course will guide you through an integrated arc that builds on itself, teaching you the essential practice of neuroscientific coaching.

You’ll learn from global experts on neuroscientific coaching—people who will teach you the essential transformational practices, proven to work.

What coaches are saying about the Neuroscience of Change

This is by far the best course I have attended ever.

Vicky Miethe

Outstanding! The course has helped me sink into what I have known for a long time at some deep level, in a clearer and more confident way. This is a rare offering in the coach training world.

Jayne Willoughby

A game changer for understanding how we humans behave. Essential for coaching mastery.

Laura Sciore

I can now combine my own intuition and gut-feeling during a session, with what I know is going on in the brain, nervous system and experience of the client. That helps me to better read the clients situation (or my own), allowing me to stay in the unknown longer and eventually have more options.

Niels Horeman

This course has been inspirational! Having the neuroscience to back up my own ‘felt’ sense in coaching is a brilliant resource. I am feeling lit up by it all. Heartfelt thanks!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I still register if I can’t attend the live workshops?
Absolutely. Everything is recorded and downloadable. We always have a number of participants on each training who are unable to attend the live workshops.
How long will I be able to access the downloads of the training?
You’ll have guaranteed access for twelve months following the completion of the program. To retain them longer than this we advise that you download them onto your own computer.
Are the workshops live or pre-recorded?
All our workshops are live via Zoom video conference. Some of the bonus workshops in Module 3 may be pre-recorded.
What experience level do I need to take your course?
While there is no specific amount of experience required, our trainings are focused on more advanced coaching skills for existing coaches. However, they are delivered in a way that you should understand even if you are a relative beginner. If you are brand new to coaching and personal development, you may be better served attending an introductory coaching program.
Will you provide a certificate of attendance?
Yes, you will receive a certificate of attendance that you can use to receive CCEUs from the ICF. This can also be used to gain CCEUs if you become accredited with the ICF in the future.
Can I receive CCEU’s even if I can’t attend the workshops live?

Yes, you can gain CCEUs by viewing the recordings and filling out a Missed Workshop Form.

However, to comply with ICF standards you do need to attend at least 1/3 of the 16 core sessions live. In other words you need to attend 1/3 of the workshops in modules 1-3 to qualify for the CCEUs. We know this is hard in some timezones (we have many folks who stay up late)!

Is there a group discount available?
Yes, there is a discount for groups of 8 or more. Email us using the link in the box below for more information.
