Making leadership coaching part of any organization's DNA is a must. More than ever, in today's uncertain, fast-changing world, the difference between success and failure lies in the ability to expand an organization's strategic leadership capacity, its ability to learn and adapt, and the resiliency of its leaders.

ICF CCEs: 1.5 Core Competency (Pending)

Learn how to help your clients build resilience by understanding, accepting and managing their “Lizard Brain,” the unconscious and instinctual system responsible for the “flight or fight” behavior in humans.

 “Lizard Brain” evolved to help humans respond to physical threats and danger and continues to play an important role in human survival. However, this neurological alert system can also lead to default negativity, limiting assumptions and unhelpful thought patterns. 

Join this interactive session to learn about the neuroscience of emotions and how you can use the Straight As of Emotional Intelligence to help your clients build awareness, accept, and manage difficult emotions.

This presentation will include guided discussions and practice activities to help coaches:

  • Understand how the Lizard Brain helps and hinders people in responding to life’s challenges
  • Learn and practice strategies for managing the Lizard Brain
  • Use techniques like the “Straight As of Emotional Intelligence”
  • Integrate elements of neuroscience into your coaching practice
