Coaching Benefits the Brain!
–> Neuroscience is giving us an increasing understanding of the brain, how it works, and what can influence its working. We all know that sleep and nutrition can impact brain functioning, but did you
know that coaching can as well?
At the International Coaches Association (ICF) Advance 2014 conference, Ann Betz, CPCC shared four facts about coaching that are substantiated by neuroscience:
1) Coaching helps create positive neural pathways, which leads to lasting, sustainable change.
2) Coaching and being “coach-like” tends to put people in a state where their brains are more open to learning, visioning and growth.
3) The tools of professional coaching have been scientifically proven to reduce stress, which leads to more sophisticated thinking, emotional intelligence, empathy and creativity.
4) Coaching helps build crucial connections between various parts of the brain. A more well-integrated brain is correlated with more success in leadership and life.
Research has also demonstrated specific benefits of coaching for students with ADHD.
