Neuroscience – Part 3 of 3

with David Ogle, Dose Coaching

Metacognition is our ability to think about our thinking; coaching is a process predicated on leveraging metacognition to generate new awareness, develop thoughtfulness, spark insight, and create behaviour change. Ever stop to think about why, exactly, this process works? This series is not going to teach you the mystical answer that only neuroscience can provide; it does not exist. It will, however, discuss relevant research, principles, and considerations from the field of cognitive and social neuroscience that are relevant to people with brains, and also coaches. We will cover a few core principles of neuroscience, examine cognitive processes for which coaching serves as an intervention, and discuss considerations that are equally relevant for coaches and their clients (multitaskers, beware!). We will create space for discussion and peer collaboration while keeping “the science” digestible and relatively long-latin-term-free. You will not walk away knowing exactly how the brain works, but you will gain exposure to research-based information that will enhance any coach’s toolkit.


  • Attendees will walk away with an understanding of core processes within the brain that affect coaching as a practice.
  • Attendees will learn about key cognitive outcomes that coaching is trying to create for a client.
  • Attendees will be exposed to a variety of research and cognitive factors at play for both coaches and clients within a coaching session.
