See below for an idea of the day's content:

The picture of the human brain is emerging from neuroscience. An understanding of the key ideas can enhance our work as coaches both in what we understand (the evidence and the theories) and what we do experientially and this is needed to work effectively as a coach.

Virginia will enable us to explore the proposition that “there are no single brains”.

·         The brain is an organ for managing relationships
·         relationship is the key carrier signal for effecting any change or development
·         via our relationship with the coachee we can create the beginnings of new networks in the brain that can be practised tested developed and strengthened outside of coaching.

Throughout the day we will bring in and weave together

·         neuroscience evidence for the proposition that there are no single brains
·         layered  onto our own experience as coaches
·         opportunities to practice and reflect on what we are learning on the day
·         with this new information we can make connections and make sense of what we now might do differently in our coaching practice.
