About the Course

Neuroscience for the Advanced Coach

With the maturity of the coaching profession, it’s time for a coaching program designed specifically for experienced coaches, offering depth and rigor, and addressing both the art and science of coaching. It’s also time for coaches and their clients to understand why and how coaching works, based on current scientific research and the developing understanding of the brain.

This four-quarter training for the advanced coach covers the latest research in the neuroscience of human development, innovative, brain-based coaching tools, and a road map for conscious evolution.

BEabove Leadership’s “7 Levels of Effectiveness” is powerful road map to consciousness and higher levels of effectiveness in all areas of life. Co-founders Ann and Ursula bring in cutting-edge neuroscience to ground this theory scientifically, as well as drawing on their combined 30 years of coaching and training to make it all real, applicable, and highly useful as a coach.

Active learning

A New Kind of Virtual Course

This program is unlike any virtual course you’ve taken before! Groups are small (8 people max) and we’re together for a full year so you get lots of individual attention and time to get to your leaders (us!) and each other. The content is not passive — it requires active listening and participation. It’s highly experiential and, as always at BEabove, we will be pushing the limits of what’s possible in a virtual class. 

Transformational Learning

Rigorous and Experiential

This program powerfully weaves the three strands of coaching, consciousness and practical, irrefutable neuroscience together, taking you through an inside-out process so that you understand it deeply in your core. This series is transformative in nature, giving you both highly effective new tools as a coach and deepened personal awareness as a human being. Classes are highly experiential, with many multi-sensory techniques for learning and remembering the complexities of the brain. If you’re a science geek, you’ll love the rigor and applicability of the information. If you’re a creative type, you’ll enjoy the opportunity to play right in the brain and the easy-to-use tools.

Reviews

What Our Students Say

This program was invigorating, transformational and fun! Ann and Ursula, both master teachers, delivered the content with grace and joy, and we were constantly engaged and actively processing and applying our new knowledge. Who knew learning about neuroscience could be so fun and interactive? I highly recommend this artfully integrated and inspirational training to anyone who is ready to shake things up, break things open, and try out some brilliant new tools in their coaching practice.

Kara Schommer

Director of Programs, Neighborhood House

Ann and Ursula, of BeAbove Leadership, have integrated consciousness and coaching with the latest findings in the field of neuroscience to create a powerful and accessible roadmap and guidebook. As a corporate coach, I use their resources with all my managers to help them excel in leadership — in their life and work and for the sake of those they lead. The BEabove Advanced Coaching Series is a must for the experienced coach.

George Rohrer

Life Strategy Coach, CPCC, MBA

The models I learned in this course have given me the language to explain why we react in certain ways, and why things in life sometime feel like they’re flowing while other times we feel stuck. Most importantly, this program has provided me with a way of explaining what is possible. Surprisingly, I don’t have to dig to0 much into explanation and everyone that I’ve shared this with gets it, because it is part of our human experience. The understanding of how the brain works is fabulous!
