Topic:  Coaching Through the Lens of Neuroscience

Speaker:  Janine Moon
CEU:  1.25 Core Competencies

4:15 pm - 4:30 pm - DOORS OPEN
4:30 pm - 6:30 pm - MEETING
6:30 pm - 7:30 pm - SOCIAL HOUR

The program will introduce and/or review neuroscience terms, structure, functions and a model that coaches can use to more effectively apply coaching competencies.

  1. Review neuroscience terms and ‘structure’ or brain parts relevant to coaching: hormones and chemicals; amygdala; neocortex; limbic system; synapses; neurons; pre-frontal cortex; basal ganglia.


  2. Recognize and apply neuroscience functions that underpin coaching competencies in order to intentionally use them with clients: neuroplasticity; feedback loops and reward systems; amygdala and threat response; brain chemicals and hormones that feel good and those that don’t; neocortex strengths and limitations. Participants will discuss/ practice using these functions with select coaching competencies, e.g. establishing trust; creating awareness; designing actions; planning and goal setting.


  3. Understand the neuroscience behind David Rock’s SCARF model and work with a partner to apply the model to case studies and/or current or past clients.


1. Participants will learn to consider neuroscience principles and findings in examining themselves and clients, in order to be more intentional with both self- and client coaching.


2. Working with partner(s), participants will consider several coaching competencies through the lens of neuroscience, e.g. how brain chemicals can be fostered when establishing trust and intimacy; how neuroplasticity comes into play when coaching clients in designing actions and goals to achieve coaching results; and how knowing about feedback loops and threat and reward responses can impact coaching presence.


3.  Working with a partner or group, participants will apply David Rock’s SCARF model to case studies to discover how to use the model with their own clients.

Janine's Bio:

Janine has many years experience in leadership, leader and organization development, executive and team coaching and C-level peer advisory groups. Janine provides leaders with tools that get to the bottom of employee resistance and low productivity, helping identify low engagement and define actions to jumpstart employee commitment. Her coaching in organizations is centered on individuals and teams whose interpersonal, collaboration and leadership skills need sharpening.   


            Janine has been coaching professionally for 18 of her 21 years as a business owner. She is one of five Master Certified Career Coaches in the country, and is two months from completing her Certified Executive Coach credential through Mentor Coach. In addition to corporate coaching and consulting, Janine teaches in graduate and undergrad psychology programs at Franklin University and has published two books on career success in the 21st century. She additionally offers peer groups—Women’s Political Leadership Circles—for women considering a run or in a campaign for local, state or federal elected office.


A runner for over 30 years, Janine continues to explore how human energy sources (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) impact business and personal contribution and satisfaction. Recently stepping into the roles of mother-in-law and step-grandmom, she lives in the Grandview area with her black lab, Shaylee.
