Change, Neuroscience and Coaching
Change Brain, Change
Today, the fields of neuroscience and quantum science allow us to go
well beyond just a cognitive approach (just changing how we think)!
Exciting new findings
from neuroscience can now be directly translated into behavioral change
strategies to make people smarter and better at what they do.
The brain is a network
of neural networks (multilayered neural architecture).
Experience-dependent plasticity (EDP) mechanisms enable real neural
networks to form memories and thereby learn by changing the excitatory
or inhibitory properties of synapses that connect neurons to each other.
For behavioral change
agents to be effective in behavior change work they need to understand
the foundational neuroscience explaining how the brains architecture
works -such as; how emotions affects beliefs, values and cognition and
interact to produce behavior.
From the exciting
field of Neuroscience (Neuroscientists focus on the brain and its impact
on behavior change and cognitive functions.)
The latest studies clearly show that a willing person placed in a
stimulating, challenging personal development program employing the
latest brain-based learning and behavior change methods will show a
dramatic increase in the number of nerve cell connections in their brain
(synapses -electrochemical connections between neurons) –and ultimately
their cognitive abilities.
Firstly, do brain exercises
change behavior, make you smarter, or just better at doing the exercises?
-Recent studies suggest cognitive training
provides only a modest boost to regular daily cognitive activities.
Brain training also doesn’t impart knowledge. The exercises may improve
a person’s performance doing the exercises but they will certainly not
impart any self knowledge or how to transform them self to a higher
level of functioning or improve their well-being. Brain power is the
capacity to learn how to use one's mental resources -whatever they may
be -to best advantage. A more realistic goal is to enhance our mental
functioning in certain key areas that is referred to as cognition.
Cognition / Action
Briefly, cognition refers to the ability of our brain to attend,
identify, and act. Cognition also refers to our thoughts, moods,
inclinations, decisions and ultimate actions. Included among the
components of cognition are alertness, concentration, perceptual speed,
learning, memory, problem solving, creativity, and mental endurance. In
short, we can make ourselves smarter and better by how we manage our
breakthrough discovery in behavioral change!
The ongoing breakthrough research in the field of neuroscience provides
us a blueprint how to teach people to easily access and exchange their
primary behavioral drivers to obtain more sustainable, favorable
outcomes. Traditionally change agents take a costly, time intensive
cognitive approach (via training, coaching or therapy) that only
provides limited results (50% to 60% success rate even when delivered by
- Today’s new science
clearly shows us that Emotion proceeds cognition (our actions and
results). The Behavioral Insititute’s Master Coach Course provides
students the knowledge, tools and models for enhancing a person’s
cognition by improving their brain's performance through better
management and regulation of the master control switches of their
cognition –their emotional states.
- A core principle at
work here is that to change behavior, people cannot leave the place they
are at and move forward until they have arrived at a state of full
awareness of their relevant behavioral drivers at work. Our clients
therefore need to re-live and reclaim the relevant disowned
event/experience before they can change their behavior in future similar
events to generate enhanced results. In this empowered process, our
clients have no fear that they will be asked to change who they are but
understand that they will simply re-discover and re-harness relevant,
more productive behavioral drivers they have may have disclaimed,
dismissed, lost , simply misplaced or not consciously felt.
All of us actually select
the kind of brain we have by what we do. So, the big question is -how
can an organization help their employee’s bring about positive,
enriching changes in their brain's structure and function to enhance
their productivity and well-being, or will they allow it to undergo
"disuse atrophy" which will ultimately affect the organizations future

The Course is uniquely designed to show students how to transform
individual intelligence and natural brain power into organizational
intelligence and tangible bottom-line results through the use of proven,
cutting-edge self-change/mental development tools/models (based in the
behavioral sciences). Note: The learning platform is behavioral (from
‘behavioral science’) based coaching.
Organizations -"Success is never final"
Is "organizational intelligence" - basically, brain power writ large -
the defining proposition for businesses that hope to survive through the
coming decades? We can define organizational intelligence as the
capacity of an enterprise to mobilize all of its brain power and to
focus that brain power on achieving its mission.
-The Bottom Line:- The Behavioral Coaching Institute's Master Coach Course provides:
- Students learn the steps their clients need to take to increase and strengthen their cognitive ability (higher
level of cognitive functioning). It's important to remember that our
brain holds the key to everything we will ever accomplish. Moreover,
there is also pleasure gained from the exercising our brain's powers.
students are taught how to help their clients optimize their
intellectual capabilities, raise their performance levels, be happier
and accomplish even more in life than many people who may score higher
on standardized intelligence tests. This is achieved by: 1) learning the
key basic principles of how our brain works and changes itself (the
underlying science of ‘self’-change) and, 2) taught how to select a
client’s best suited emotional drivers that controls their thinking and behavior (what they do -including results/outcome) and quality of life.
