The Diploma of Neurobiology of Coaching, Wellbeing & Brain-Friendly Practices has been designed with the most current insights from neuroscience and biology in mind.
This program will help you acquire a ‘neurocoaching mindset’ and allow you to go deeper into how to evolve the competencies of performance, collaboration, innovation and agility once your clients receive their i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment results.
You can benefit from learning the content and using the material as it stands in your coaching practice or by adopting the i4 Neuroleader™ Methodology as your guiding compass.
Whether you are a consultant, a coach or a leader, you will be taken on a journey of self-discovery that will not only provide you with ideas and experiences you can use in your own life and with clients or team members but will also give you the know-how to apply the processes, tools and protocols to develop brain-friendly cultures.
Creating awareness on how to optimise our brains to achieve better results in business and, at the same time, knowing how to preserve the wellbeing of the people involved is not a simple task, and it requires a systematic approach.
As a ‘brain-friendly coach’, you will be able to take any organisation's talent to a new level and help establish brain-friendly conditions to produce a conducive environment for new knowledge to be shared, adopted and sustained over time.
The total commitment for this Diploma is 108 hours. You can complete the two learning components within 12 months or in as little as 6 months. We have made this program flexible to fit into any busy schedule.
