In recent years, neuroscience has evolved to be a body of science that attracts worldwide interest in the coaching field. Professional coaches and organisational leaders are curious to learn how the brain works so as to improve their coaching effectiveness, both in personal and organisational contexts. But, how many neuroscientific studies have been conducted and even published in the field of coaching?

Most seminars and lectures about the neuroscience of coaching appears to borrow the insight from the cognitive neuroscience of human decision-making and behavioural change to enrich the perspective of coaching. Only a few, if not extremely rare, neuroscientific studies of coaching are conducted to deliberately elucidate the coaching impact on the brain.

This session will provide you with ground-breaking evidence of the neural mechanisms induced by coaching, both during a coaching session in a natural setting and post-coaching alteration of the brain pattern. You will learn that a brain-focused coaching approach, by aiming for optimising and/or altering particular brain functions, may actually result in a multidimensional change of humans beyond established coaching perspectives.

Who Should Attend?

  • Professional coaches
  • Coaching psychologists
  • Learning and development professionals
  • Human resource leaders
  • Business leaders
