Using the science of the brain to improve coaching skills
The latest in a series of specialist master classes at the University of Chester has given coaches and talent management practitioners a new understanding of brain science to motivate and manage key employees.
The Neuroscience of Coaching for Engagement workshop was designed for those responsible for coaching or learning and development programmes with senior leaders and business executives. It examined how neuroscience can help boost outcomes and coaching success.
Neuroscience specialist, Chris Samsa, showed his public and private sector audience how to apply neuroscience to day-to-day coaching practices. The audience discovered how neuroscience could help achieve much deeper levels of engagement for a more positive and productive working – using alternatives to feedback and through creating an environment to enable people to experience greater insight.
The event was part of a highly successful series for practitioners in the North of England, hosted by LeaderShape and Chester’s Centre for Work Related Studies (CWRS.eu). LeaderShape is a group of experienced CEOs and business executives offering high impact Masters level qualifications, accredited by the University of Chester. LeaderShape Director, Danielle Grant, said:
“Companies are increasingly committed to nurturing senior talent and need the highest level tools to ensure a return on their expensive executive investments. Research shows Leadership is the single most important factor in success and creating effective engagement is a very crucial part of the leader’s role. LeaderShape’s senior team understands what organisations go through – because we’ve been there! We believe it is crucial to help people build their own roadmaps to success with robust qualifications backed by the most reputable organisations, such as Chester – a UK leader in work-based learning.”
Tony Wall, Accreditation Specialist and Senior Lecturer, at CWRS, a leader in work based and negotiated learning said:
“The results from creating a deeply engaged team or organisation are absolutely amazing – all the participants took away something they could use immediately. ”
The event was accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF) with 7 CCEUs and could form part of a prestigious CWRS or LeaderShape qualification. Previous events have included The Art of Masterful Coaching and Team Coaching.
