Our Brain-Based Approach To Coaching

Facilitate positive change by improving the quality of thinking


Results Coaching System

Designed by David Rock, the Results Coaching model is designed for coaching high functioning people who want help structuring and challenging their thinking.

The approach draws from contemporary neuroscience, along with research from positive psychology, adult learning theory, as well as systems and change theories. This method is ideal for coaching rational, business-focused professionals.





Underlying Principles of Results Coaching

Self-directed Learning

We believe that coachees need to be in the driver’s seat of the learning process. However this does not mean a coachee always has all the answers, sometimes a coach provides other useful perspectives or triggers new thinking. The coach’s role is to support good process in coaching, the coachee’s role is to do the hard thinking.



Solutions Focus

Research indicates that to focus intensely on problems can be counterproductive. Negative hard wiring in the brain is reactivated and strengthened, thereby reducing the ability to see new ways of thinking. The brain creates new circuits based on where attention is focused, so we focus closely on solutions rather than problems.



Positive Feedback

Acknowledgement of progress is the lifeblood of effective coaching and our coaches are skilled in providing this positive reinforcement and helping each coachee to develop the ability to build confidence through self acknowledgement.



Stretch Results

Coaching is focused on helping each coachee reach challenging and motivating goals. The coach’s role is to stretch the individual to move rapidly and effectively to the achievement of the defined goal, identifying and finding ways around blocks along the way.

Coaching is much easier to do if there is a clearly defined structure behind it. It supports the coach and coachee throughout the process, so that both know exactly what is expected of them at each step of the way.
