    Presenter:  Paulette Rao

    June 20, 2019 ICF-ICF Webinar 11:30-1:00 – 1.5 CCEUs

    Course Description:

    Why do coaches bother to study neuroscience? Recent scientific data about the brain helps us understand why coaching works and how to coach for maximum efficacy. Neuroscience is the study of the human nervous system, the brain, and the biological basis of consciousness, perception, memory, and learning. This knowledge about the brain allows us to better understand how clients think, act, and learn. 

    Studying the brain allows coaches and leaders to:

    • Understand why coaching works
    • Learn how to coach for maximum impact
    • Lead a conversation that facilitates learning
    • Improve their performance
    • Improve the performance of others (who report to us or whom we are coaching).

    These insights have the power to fundamentally rewrite the rules for every human endeavor involving thinking and learning, including how we educate, how we hire and manage staff, how we train people in the workplace, and how we develop leaders.

    In this program you will:

    • Understand how the brain works so that you can increase your efficacy as a coach
    • Learn how to create and sustain a positive, engaged state of mind to create the ideal circumstances for coaching to occur.
