The Neuroscience Behind Coaching & Professional Development
The field of neuroscience has begun to explore how certain interventions used in coaching and professional development can facilitate positive changes in the brain and body.
Neuroscience teaches us that how we think affects how we feel and therefore how we behave. Coaches help clients shift their thinking to be more present-moment focused, optimistic and less fearful, which can stimulate neuroplasticity and lead to substantial changes in one’s mood and behavior.
So… What is Neuroplasticity?
We used to believe that once we became adults our brain could not change and that changes only occurred in infancy and childhood. Modern research has shown that the brain continues to create new neural pathways and can alter exciting ones in accordance with new experiences, learned information and can create new memories.
Neuroplasticityis what underlies our capacity to learn new things and enables mental and behavioural flexibility. The brain is always going through a remodelling process. It has the capacity to change and grow through experience and enables people to bounce back from adversity and setbacks. This allows for people to build and tap into greater resilience and well-being.
Coaches help clients build resilience based on neuroplasticity by providing them with opportunities for greater learning. The client can be directed to more functional patterns of thinking that can restore cognitive and behavioural flexibility.

ONCE YOU DECIDE, YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Limiting beliefs are beliefs you hold that keep you from doing what you want to do. The human mind has an amazing ability to come up with infinite reasons why you can’t do something.
There is a good chance you have limiting beliefs stopping you right now and you don’t even realize it.
Limiting beliefs come in a variety of shapes and forms. They might be thoughts like:
- “I always mess up when I try this.”
- “I’m not good at this.”
- “It’s selfish or immoral for me to succeed.”
- “I’m not meant to be successful at this.”
- “If I try this, people will judge me.”
It could be any negative recurring thought that stops you. Regardless of what the specific thought it, this type of negative thinking will hold you back from achieving your goals. To eliminate them, you first need to identify them.
Calling out Your Limiting Beliefs
You can dispel these negative beliefs by calling them out and telling yourself they’re not true. Each of us has a different set of recurring negative thoughts. What are yours? Simply realizing when this is happening is a great first step for combating them.
