The power of coaching is profoundly leveraged through practical applications of neuroscientific principles. Learn how to support you and your clients’ greater self-awareness, emotional capacity, resilience, and regulation through an evidence-based approach to changing the brain. This course assists coaches to grasp the basic premises of interpersonal neurobiology and translate it into action steps to empower their clients to transform their momentary ‘states’ into sustained ‘traits’.

About Kelly Wendorf
Kelly Wendorf, PCC, MECD is an executive coach, motivational speaker, author, transformational mentor, and socially responsible entrepreneur. She is the Founding Partner of EQUUS, an innovative leadership development organization that she runs with her partner J. Scott Strachan in Santa Fe, New Mexico. EQUUS uniquely combines neuroscience, systems theory, contemplative wisdom, attachment theory, somatic processes and nature-based wisdom in their coaching approach that is both experiential and transformative.
Kelly’s early experiences were vitally shaped by the natural and ancient world around her where she learned a way of listening to forces within people, nature and moments. This unconventional education grants her a gift of perception that liberates untapped potential and hidden gifts within individuals and organizations, helping them to solve problems differently through a wisdom-informed and wholeness approach.
Throughout her life she has lived and worked around the world, studying with many spiritual and Indigenous leaders in India, Africa, Indonesia, and Australia. Such immersion in multi-cultural perspectives has honed a passion for creating a new narrative in the human condition, empowering organizations, leaders and high-performance individuals to wield meaningful change in their communities and in the world. She has worked inside a wide spectrum of clientele – from Amazon to some of the most underserved communities.
Kelly founded, edited and published Kindred magazine (Australia), an evidence-based publication that explores the social, cultural and biological underpinnings of a compassionate society. Here she spent 15 years immersed in the field of neuroscience and neuropsychology and its application to social justice and transformative cultural change.
An intuitive lifelong horsewoman and gifted educator, Kelly developed The EQUUS Experience® — an equine-assisted learning process — in response to her frustration with the limitations of conventional learning methodologies. The process works with horses as co-facilitators, to illicit breakthrough learning through engaging in a 56-million-year-old system – the horse herd. The work, grounded in evidence-based research into the neurobiological approach to learning, engages the limbic pathway where the re-wiring of emotional and psychological habits is possible, translating into lasting change and growth. The EQUUS Experience® is trending as a powerful differentiator in organizational change circles.
