April Coaching Conversation: The Human Change Challenge & How to Stack the Odds for Success

When: 4/18/2023 4:30 PM - 5:45 PM


Have you noticed that sometimes you and/or your coaching clients say they want to make a change, but then when you check in on progress, not much has been made? Do you wonder why it's so challenging for human beings to change, even when they WANT to change? Would you like to exchange ideas with other coaches and increase the number of tools and techniques you can choose from to help individuals make more progress towards their desired changes? Join this session to learn the neurobiology of human change, gain simple concepts you can share to normalize for your clients why change can be challenging, and acquire tools and techniques to help you and your clients increase the odds of changing behaviors and mindsets.

Learning Objectives:
  • Normalize the human change challenge for yourself and your clients: Explain why change (even sought after, desired change) is challenging for humans based on current neurobiological understanding. 
  • Identify tools and techniques that increase the odds of moving in the direction of, and realizing, a desired change. 
  • Access additional resources for deeper learning about the neuroscience of change.     

CCEUs will be available for this program: 1.5 Core Competencies
