Neuroscience teaches us about the brain mechanisms that influence the mind, the driving force behind every thought, memory, emotion and behaviour that people have, and as coaches we need to learn to work with both. This two-day specialist interest workshop will provide you with an understanding of the brain-body mechanisms associated with stress and anxiety and how they are triggered. From that you will practice implementing the learning into a coaching conversation to help you better support your coachees with their work-related stress.
Want to know about running this programme at your organisation? Let's have a chat.
A reduction in manpower, increased workload, tight deadlines, too much pressure and responsibility, coupled with a lack of managerial support are often cited as the main causes of work related stress, which during 2016/17 resulted in 45% of all working days lost due to ill health (Health and Safety Executive, 2018). However, a more worrying trend is the increase in presenteeisum which has more than tripled since 2010 (CIPD 2018). It is therefore unsurprising that the topic of stress and anxiety is becoming a common denominator in coaching conversations, with many coachee’s narratives corroborating the statistical evidence.

- About the mind-body-behaviour connection.
- How to integrate into your practice systemically – how it affects you as a coach, the coachee and your coach-coachee relationship.
How you learn
The two-day workshop blends theory and participation to allow you to practise neuroscience and coaching skills in person, gain insights into how this coaching model is used and how it can be applied in your line of work.
You will work with fellow participants in triads (coach/coachee/observer) throughout the course to practise your coaching skills, gain feedback and embed your learning.
You will be led by expert faculty who will provide personal and direct feedback from observing your work.
Your learning experience
Learning is shared through faculty-led sessions with practise in triad groups.
The programme’s experiential style of learning allows you to practise coaching skills from the start.
Your learning and development are always supported in a safe and comfortable environment to ensure you grow your confidence by working with your strengths and receiving personal and structured feedback from peers and faculty.
You will receive a certificate of attendance on completing the course.
