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.
