Sharpening Your Coaching Skills with Neuroscience

Sharpening Your Coaching Skills with Neuroscience

This six-week coaching practicum course will help you to refine your coaching skills by applying neuroscience concepts. Did you know that every conversation generates a chemical component because of the interaction that occurs. Did you know that conversations have the power to change the brain?

Justin Kennedy, professor of neuroscience at South Africa’s University of Pretoria, says,

“When a person thinks new thoughts, the geography of the brain is actually changing—the electric patterns that create and carry thoughts, and the chemicals that control moods and energy levels change.” 1

 Ann Betz, speaker, consultant, and trainer on the intersection of neuroscience, extends Kennedy’s thought by adding that every time we do something or think about something, a neural pathway is either being potentiated or reinforced. Sustainable change happens when a person thinks new thoughts and then practices these new neural networks until they become more dominant than the older ones he or she wishes to leave behind. 2

When we understanding how coaching works alongside the neuroscience process that occurs in the brain—our coaching can take on a powerful and strong transformational influence.



If you have completed a basic coaching coaching course or completed CCE’s Essential Training course, this interactive Elective will be an effective course in advancing your coaching skills.
