The Neuroscience of Change

Understand the Brain — Transform your Coaching

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. They clearly see the vision that they want to devote themselves to.

But then there are those sessions where nothing seems to shift.

What’s the difference?

They seem the same. You sit before your client, fully present, listen attentively to their problems, help them define what’s really going on, and how to move towards what they want.

Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t.

And now we know why.

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

These discoveries are transforming the practice of coaching. Neuroscience shows us what the most powerful and effective coaching techniques actually are. It shows why some of our “tried and true” methods fail. It shows us the ways we can inadvertently sabotaging our own coaching work.

Through extensive neuroscience research, we now know how to guide our clients away from stress and closed-mindedness, and into positive learning states that allow genuine change to occur.

This knowledge can transform your coaching practice. In fact, a coach who does not have the benefit of this immense field of wisdom is unnecessarily limiting the impact of their transformational work.

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.

Join us for The Neuroscience of Change.
