TRAINING: NEUROSCIENCE FOR COACHES: 10 RESEARCH-BACKED STRATEGIES TO HELP YOUR CLIENTS CHANGE THEIR HABITS, THEIR BEHAVIOURS, AND THEIR LIVES

As a coach or helping professional who wants to help their clients achieve better outcomes and lasting transformations, you need to work with your clients' brains.

Learning more about the neuroscience of human behaviour enables you to select evidence-based tools, exercises, and practices that will get better results for your clients.

I'm holding a free Neuroscience for Coaches seminar on August 19th where you'll learn:

  • The neuroscience of willpower — and the REAL secret to developing unshakeable discipline
  • How to hack your client’s “progress loop” so their motivation remains high naturally
  • A surprisingly simple trick for overcoming procrastination and getting more done in a day
  • How visualization can actually PREVENT your clients from achieving their goals — and what they should do instead
  • A “like-magic” technique for creating instant focus, so your clients can do more of what matters to them
  • 8 ways to boost insight and generate more flashes of genius — so your clients can bring more creativity to their toughest problems
  • Why most affirmations are don’t work — and how to REALLY help your clients change their thought patterns (and their lives)


You’ll come away with a greater understanding of how your clients think, new tools to help them change their thinking, and more confidence in the exercises and strategies you recommend.

Date: August 19
Time: 12 noon or 6 pm
