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.

  • Module 1

    The Fundamentals of Neuroscientific Coaching

    with Amanda Blake, Lisa Feldman Barret, Alan Fogel, and David Treleaven

You’ll learn to deepen your own embodied self-awareness, while guiding your clients to do the same. We’ll explore the power of presence, the importance of the distributed brain, and how you can tune in to the myriad avenues of wisdom available to you in each moment.

What coaches are saying about the Neuroscience of Change

This program has revolutionized the way I coach. Both me and my clients are less in our heads, and able to connect with the body and tap into our creativity.

Alicja Nocon
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

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

Vicky Miethe

For those who worry about finding the right words, the right questions, or the right tone, this course bursts wide those assumptions, inviting a full body engagement in service to our clients. The blend of evidenced-based science, best practice and warm conversation makes this a must for anyone seeking to advance their coaching practice.

Trace Haythorn
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!

Diana Blanchard

This has been a life-changing course! It has given me outstanding knowledge, insight and understanding of the human condition. I can now work with embodied self-awareness to help my clients understand and nurture themselves from a place of unique wisdom and compassion. This course has been fascinating, challenging and rewarding in equal measure.

Elizabeth MacDonald
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.
