As a neuroscientist, I’ve spent over 20 years studying psychology and neuroscience. I’ve put together the 10 little-known neuroscience strategies I use to make my brain work for me. These strategies are immediately actionable and, on this live webinar, you’ll learn how you can use these 10 neuroscience strategies when coaching clients . . . and to make your brain work for you too.
