How We Work With You
A neuroscience approach to coaching
Have you ever wondered why supporting people in change processes is not easy? Neuroscience has been gaining increasing attention in recent years and is providing soem real clues about why change is so difficult based on greater understanding of how our brains work.
Recent advances in understanding how our brains work can improve how you lead change, manage staff or work with others. This understanding (referred to as NeuroLeadership) is revolutionising how leaders lead.
NeuroLeadership has important implications for how we:
- support people making decisions
- address problems
- collaborate with and influence others
- remain cool under pressure
- facilitate change
As part of our coaching offerings, clients are introduced to insights from recent international NeuroLeadership summits and to models and ideas which improve how you give feedback, cut your meeting times in half and develop greater insight about how you can support sustainable change across the various contexts of your life.
Our coaches are undertaking post graduate studies to specialise in this field through Middlesex University. If you would like further information, please contact us.
How we work with you
Coaching a focused conversation that creates clarity and awareness and moves a person into action.
The coach and the client(s) meet in person, or have conversations regularly, i.e. once or twice a month, for 12 sessions.
The typical coaching process:
Establishing the current reality of the person and situations they are facing. What’s going on now? What’s working? What’s not?
Defining specific goals to be reached within the coaching contract period (typically 6 – 12 months).
Developing strategies and actions to achieve goals which includes clarification of areas of development and identification of internal and external barriers.
Closing the gap between the current and desired reality, monitoring and ensuring forward moving actions.
Review and feedback of progress. Support structures for sustained behaviour modification.
During the sessions the coach will listen, ask questions, provide insights and fresh perspectives, give honest and effective feedback, insist on forwarding action and setting of stretch goals, keep the client focused and intervene when non-helpful behaviours, limiting thoughts or procrastination appear.
