Over the past year neuroscience-of-coaching expert Ann Betz and I have had several fascinating conversations about the intersections between our work. This time we wanted to invite you to listen in as we explore.
This informal conversation was a wild and fun ride, as those of you who joined us live got to experience. One participant has already emailed to tell me she took 4 pages of notes!
Our aim was to explore, inspire, and teach, and in my humble estimation we achieved all three. Listen in to hear us discuss…
- the vital importance of integration – what it is and why it matters
- the neuroscience that underlies embodied learning
- the role of metaphor in creating meaning and integration
- practical, immediately applicable tools that get clients nodding their heads and eagerly trying out powerful but unfamiliar approaches to learning and change
This is the video I mention towards the end of the call:
