About this Event

Mastering Self-Awareness: A Neuroscience Approach

One of the major benefits of coaching is that it provides a space in which individuals can become more self-aware. This often leads to insights and breakthroughs in personal development. However, building and maintaining self-awareness can sometimes feel difficult. What is happening in the brain as we become more self-aware? And, given that this can sometimes feel like hard work, what are the benefits of greater self-awareness?

Anyone who wants to lead, coach, collaborate or generally interact effectively with other human beings would be well advised to start by paying attention to themselves. Why? Because only through becoming more self-aware can we gain the feedback we need to master our own behaviour. Often what is missing is our understanding of ‘How To’ do this. This workshop will help you build important skills including:

How to develop the right mindset

Any form of excellence begins with the belief that we can improve, and a willingness to strive for improvement. Neuroscience makes clear that learning is always possible. But always believing that you can learn and consistently practicing new skills is often more difficult than you might think. This is where heightened self-awareness comes in.

How to increase your self-awareness

In order to increase personal mastery, it is necessary both to be aware of your own behaviour, and the way that others respond to it, in real time - moment by moment. Being this self-aware is not always easy, especially when you’re under pressure.

How to keep going when under pressure

Sometimes we fail not because we can’t do something but because we can’t maintain it under pressure. Using the neuroscience of self-awareness, you can create habits to draw on, regardless of how much pressure you’re under.

Another kind of pressure is being really busy all the time. It is challenging to be self-aware because task takes over. Being self-aware is a skill that requires time and space to develop. Neuroscience gives us ways to step back and so increases our effectiveness.

How to get more value out of feedback

Being self-aware requires both that you pay attention to feedback and increase focus on events which are within your control rather than those which you cannot control. In this workshop, we will show you how to build these skills. We will do this by giving you neuroscience tools and techniques that put you in the driving seat.

By the end of this one-day workshop, we will:

  • Reveal mindsets that lead to the development of excellence through greater self-awareness.
  • Show you how to develop these for yourself and others.
  • Give you tools to increase self-awareness even when under pressure.
  • Focus on what can be controlled so that you can increase anyone’s personal effectiveness.
  • Give you tools to notice and reduce busy-ness.
  • Spotlight how greater self-awareness could serve you and your clients personally and professionally.

The workshop is designed for coaches who are seeking tools to help individuals to improve creating greater mastery through self-awareness. The workshop will be interactive and you will leave with tips and tools that you can use immediately. It will also be an opportunity to network with other coaches and to ask relevant questions of a trained neuroscientist.

Patricia Riddell is Professor of Applied Neuroscience and an expert in the fields of coaching and leadership. She has degrees from the University of Glasgow, Imperial College, London and the University of Oxford. She is on the faculty of Henley Business School where she contributes to Masters programmes in Coaching and Behavioural Change and Leadership. She also delivers custom training in other business schools and in organisations. She is co-author of “Neuroscience of Leadership Coaching” (Bloomsbury Press, 2017) and has contributed to leading textbooks on coaching. One of her main interests is the ways in which neuroscience can be applied in the business world, supporting and extending our understanding of human behaviour. She has a unique combination of neuroscience, NLP and business related knowledge and skills which she uses to design neuroscience solutions for individuals and organisations. She enjoys working at the interface between science and the business world, and finds this role challenging and exciting.
