Through this interactive workshop, participants will learn about neuroscience and what happens in the brain with different approaches to coaching. Participants will learn about Intentional Change Theory (ICT) (Boyatsis, 2006), a process that supports behavior change. Information, as well as partner and small group activities will include both Compassionate change and Compliance change approaches.

Both are important for sustained change for both individuals and organizations. Through this workshop, participants will gain tools and tips to bring change to individuals and teams, and what happens neurologically in the brain when these approaches are used.
