Neuroscience in Coaching with Pieter Rossouw

By Robert Holmes | podcast

Jan 29

Neuroscience in coaching simply means taking the study of the brain and using it in coaching practice. Who better to talk to than a neuroscientist focusing on the efficacy of coaching – which he calls one of the “talking therapies”. Dr Pieter Rossouw served Nelson Mandela in bringing healing to the traumatised nation of South Africa. He says “Talking Therapies” are the bomb when it comes to helping people change their brains – neuroplasticity.
