NeuroLeadership Group’s Brain-Based Coaching Certificate is your opportunity to learn cutting-edge research-based tools and skills to help you effectively coach high performance, business focused individuals within the workplace or private practice. We define coaching as ‘facilitating positive change by improving thinking’. The coaching models at the core of this program draw from the hard science of how the brain works and provide practical tools to help you improve other people’s thinking and performance.

After participating in this program, you will understand the neuroscience behind insight-driven coaching conversations, goal-setting, and habit building that unlock new possibilities for robust interactions that translate into measurable results for your clients.
What sets Brain-Based Coaching apart?

This unique Brain-Based Coaching methodology is built upon an applied neuroscience foundation. Brain-Based Coaching is neuroscience-based, process-focused, and outcome driven, making this approach ideal for coaching high performing, business focused professionals. The approach draws from contemporary neuroscience, along with research from positive psychology, adult learning, systems and change theory.

Our definition of coaching is ‘facilitating positive change by improving thinking’. Coaches learn to work at the level of improving people’s underpinning thinking, helping people move through the stages of identifying impasses, to generating insights, then enabling actions, through to generating sustained new habits.
