Coaching Masterclass - Neuroscience and Coaching

Join us on Tuesday 12 March 2019 for our coaching masterclass on Neuroscience and Coaching.


How do we turn the current understanding about how the brain works into really useful knowledge in a coaching and wider organisational context? And in the light of this knowledge informing our practice, how should coaching develop?

This masterclass starts with how the brain works; how (we think) the mind works; and how the basic emotions create feelings and are the key drivers of the self-regulating systems we call people. If human beings are primarily physical rather than psychological systems then, like the whole of the rest of the universe, each is a demonstration of energy. Uniqueness is expressed in the shaping of the brain through experience and the consequential functioning of a central regulator that we call the self.

Organisations have the task of focusing all the energy that walks in every day on achieving the strategic and operational goals of the organisation. In coaching, our professional task is to understand the sources of energy within the individual that can be directed towards achieving personal coaching goals.

Who should attend?

This masterclass is for coaches who want to incorporate the most up-to-date knowledge as the basis for the development of their own coaching practice, as well as for L&D and HR specialists who equally want to consider who and what the ‘person’ really is.
