The Neuroscience of Trust

with Kenneth M. Nowack, Ph.D.

 Kenneth M. Nowack, Ph.D.

What is trust? Is it an emotion? Or something in the brain? What does it have to do with coaching relationships, business relationships and team productivity?

Dr. Nowack will guide us through the latest neuroscience research of trust by differentiating between fact and fiction, and how the myths get in the way of applying the information gathered from these studies. He will introduce research on the neuroscience of trust, demonstrating a relationship between the trust hormone oxytocin with important individual, team and organizational outcomes. You will learn about both the inhibitors and promoters of the trust hormone oxytocin and how you can apply them in your coaching practice.

Bring all your questions for an in-depth discussion about trust with one of the leading experts in this field.


  • Six neuroscience myths that are popular today
  • The leadership practices that create high trust cultures
  • The link between oxytocin, trust and empathy and the implications for coaching
  • Understand the four active ingredients of coaching and the role of trust
