Brain-Based Coaching

Posted by on Feb 22, 2013 in Coaching, Cognitive Neuroscience, Feature, Psychology | 0 comments

Coaching is a process that helps people change.

Are you rational?

Posted by on Apr 11, 2010 in Cognitive Neuroscience | 2 comments

I’ve just read one of Seth Godin’s recent posts (you can find it here – http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2010/04/are-you-rational.html).

The worst thing we can do...
