Coaching and Neuroscience

Coaching means supporting someone from "where you are" to "where you want to go"; it is a future-focused practice aiming to help clients determine and achieve specific goals. It is not therapy or other sort of psychological intervention.
 
Coaching draws inspiration from various disciplines including like psychology, positive adult development, career counselling, mentoring and other types of counselling and focuses on effecting change in a client’s current and future behaviour.
 
It is not easy to summarize the final end of a coach-coachee relation, but here are some possibilities:
 
• To attain clarity around the present and the future
• To create a vision and mission to live and/or work by
• To discover how to learn and how to be empowered
• To construct goals and support system
• To renew and energise at every level
 
Research from the more recent decades from neuroscience help to understand more about our brains than ever and as this branch of science discovers more and more about how the brains work, coaching can integrate this knowledge not only to help clients to understand human nature and behavior but also about change and best strategies to get to "where you want to go".
