In networking with fellow coaches, I have noticed a clear trend. The coaches are quick to declare “The neuroscience says…” One thing my self-awareness demonstrates to me repeatedly “I know little about neuroscience.” But a long-standing study of human behavior has led me to the conclusion that we can in fact change our brains, overcome resistance and gain greater cooperation between the part of seeking meaning, fulfilment and contribution and the part of us merely seeking survival. Thrive~al and survival align to create a brighter world through a better you!
To this end, it is my good fortune to meet Bryan Sykes. He IS a neuroscientist and has a deep passion for not just knowing human behavior but understanding what is underneath, driving the behavior and developing strategies for making sustainable change in support of our higher goals and aspirations.
I had an interesting, stimulating, and practical conversation with Bryan which will be published in the next few days. Stay tuned to learn how you can retool and refuel.
