When Facts Don't Change Minds: Neuroscience-Based Coaching Strategies That Can Help

Date: April 9, 2020

Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Virtual (via Zoom)


This session will be held virtually via Zoom and is open to ALL who wish to attend.  It is sponsored by the Executive, Team, & Group Coaching Professional Development Network of ATD Chicagoland.

Based on the work of brain researchers including Dr. Dan Siegel, Dr. Iain McGilchrist, Dr. and Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett, we’ll explore three phenomena -- Amygdala Hijack, Confirmation Bias, and Prediction Error – that can hinder a client’s effectiveness and limit his or her potential. We’ll look at what physiologically takes place in the brain when these phenomena occur and what a coach can do (based on neuroscience research) to be effective with a client under these circumstances.

Join us in this interactive, easy-to-understand session where we explore whether neuroscience supports the axiom “seeing is believing” or if it’s really the other way around!

After participating in this session, you will be able to:

  1. Define amygdala hijack, confirmation bias, and prediction error
  2. Recognize when your clients are experiencing priming, amygdala hijack, confirmation bias, and prediction error
  3. Use coaching strategies supported by neuroscience to help clients when these phenomena occur
