Why knowing about breathing is important for a coach. What dysfunctional breathing affects (experience of stress, ability to process information, regulation of nervous system), basic assessments you can use immediately.
In this interactive and educational Special Interest Group (SIG), we’ll explore the science embedded in coaching to better understand how our brains and bodies respond and change through coaching. There will be a special focus on new and innovative concepts, as well as working with thought leaders in the science of coaching.
Topics may include science-based methodologies, frameworks, tools, assessments, coaching programs and other instruments to help us be the best coaches for our clients.  We may delve into neuroscience, psychology, positive psychology, biology, physiology and even physics, nutrition and other science-based concepts that can impact and transform our coaching clients.
