2020 Pre-Conference: Inside the Magic of Coaching: The Neuroscience of Changing Minds and Behaviors

With Jeff Nally and Brian Gorman

The 2020 Pre-Conference Institute will take you through the coaching framework: from preparing yourself and your client for the coaching session, to establishing the coaching agreement, through exploration, into reflection, and finally through designing actions.

How do you make the coaching magic happen so your clients maximize their personal and professional potential?

Join the GCA Pre-Conference Institute April 30, 2020. Deepen your understanding of the neuroscience that drives your client’s thinking and their behavior. Practice in real time with your coaching colleagues. Create new applications for your coaching. 

The Institute is facilitated by GCA members Jeff Nally and Brian Gorman, two coaches who apply neuroscience in their coaching every day. 

What’s So Good About the Coaching Framework and ICF’s Competencies?

The 2020 GCA Pre-Conference Institute will take you through the coaching framework: from preparing yourself and your client for the coaching session, to establishing the coaching agreement, through exploration, into reflection, and finally through designing actions. Each step of the way we will address the associated ICF competencies, identify what does and doesn’t work, look at the neuroscience as to why, and experiment with new ways of working with our clients.

Power-Up Your Coaching

What gives the coaching you do the power that it has? How can you “power up” to be even more effective? Neuroscience is giving us new insights into the human brains, and the human response to change, every day. What are you doing as a coach that doesn’t always work for you, or that you would like to strengthen?

Let us know. If we can, we will build into the Institute curriculum how you can power up that practice; if not, we will provide you with our insights at another point during the GCA Conference.

Join the GCA Pre-Conference Institute April 30, 2020. Deepen your understanding of the neuroscience that drives your client’s thinking and their behavior, and your own. Practice in real time with your coaching colleagues. Create new applications for your coaching.
