ICF: .5 hours – Core Competencies, .5 hours Resource Development
BCC: 1.5 hours

Speaker:  Madeleine Homan Blanchard, MCC, MS in Neuroleadership, co-founder of Blanchard Coaching Services, TED Fellow coaches, and founding board member of the International Coach Federation (ICF)


As consultants and coaches we need to understand how the latest research in neuroscience can support our recommendations. In this session Master Certified Coach will share:

  1. Some Surprising Truths about the Brain— what your brain needs for optimal functioning, what stresses it, and how to manage situations when it is overwhelmed or exhausted.
  2. Key Laws of Extreme Brain Care—how we can all arrange our workday to make better decisions and achieve new levels of self-control.
  3. How to help leaders to create a “Brain-Friendly Environment”.

Set yourself—and your clients—up for success through a better understanding of brain functioning.

Benefits from this session:

1) Identify what you are already doing that supports your own optimal brain function and what you might shift to make it even better.

2) Understand extremely complex scientific concepts in a way that you can quickly and easily explain them to a regular person.

3) Try on different ways to share critical information about the brain with your clients (when they really need to know) to help them shift their own behaviors to be more what they want to be (creative, kind, patient, generous, energetic, wise – you name it!).
