Brain-based Conversation Skills

This skills-based program teaches you how to have quality coaching conversations in any situation. We define coaching as “facilitating positive change by improving thinking;” a required skill for anyone in a leadership role in today’s workplace. If you’ve never coached before, you will gain a comprehensive ‘suite’ of brain-based tools to start coaching others quickly and effectively. If you’re experienced, you will sharpen your skill set and your conversations will be more brain-friendly and results driven.

During this program, participants learn how to facilitate positive change in others by working at the level of an individual’s thinking. They learn a process that helps people move from identifying impasses to generating insights, then taking actions which lead to positive and sustainable new habits.

Meet the trainer

I’ve attended NeuroLeadership Institute Finland’s six month brain-based coaching program, and that was one of the best training programs I’ve ever attended. I took the program several years ago and still use the stuff I learned pretty much every day.

Sami Honkonen, CEO of Digitaalinen asuntokauppa DIAS & Tomorrow Tech, Host of Boss Level Podcast

This program delivered on its promises in excellent fashion. A striking difference to many other programs is that here change on a personal level is facilitated and even required. It has been a life changing experience for me and I would do it again without the slightest hesitation.

Sami Venäläinen, Enterprise Lead, Apple

The program is a fantastic combination of theory, practice and inspiration in the same package. Important know-how for leaders willing to create change.

Tiina Mikander, Head of Third Party Risk Management, Danske Bank

The program has a solid theoretical background in neurosciences. The inspiring trainers were able to get us to both learn and apply a large variety of coaching tools. Even if I already was trained and certified as coach the program really gave me added value to my practice!

Antti-Juhani Wihuri, Mindfulness Teacher, Executive Coach, Mind at Work

I can truly recommend Brain-based Coaching Certificate to anyone who wants to become a professional coach, an authentic leader or just wanting to get more out of interaction with people!
