International Coaching Week 2019
Webinar: The Neurobiology of Coaching
When we coach our clients there are many things we must take into account such as their culture, gender, socioeconomic status, education, family history, personal health and physical capacity, the list goes on and on. However, every client I have ever met has had a brain (with perhaps one or two exceptions) and all brains run on the same basic principles regardless of history, culture, gender etc. Quite simply when we learn the basics of how the brain works we become more effective as coaches.
At its core the art of coaching is the art of helping our clients change habits that don’t serve them, maintain and reinforce the ones that do serve them and and to intentionally create new habits that will allow them to achieve groundbreaking and intentional results at work, at home and at play. When we understand the neuroscience of habits and the role of the coach in the journey, we become valuable allies to our clients as they travel on the journey to health, integrity and self-empowerment.

Engaged participants will learn:
- The neuro-anatomy of habits.
- How to change bad habits in ourselves and in our clients.
