[Ile de France] Reducing Stress and Building Resilience: A Neuroscience Approach for Coaches – 19 octobre 2021
The pandemic has added stresses to many people’s lives that they could not have expected. These additional stressors have tested resilience leaving more people wondering how they can cope. At this time, coaching provides an excellent opportunity to consider how we might deal more effectively with stress and build resilience.
Patricia Riddell, Professor of Applied Neuroscience, uses her understanding of neuroscience and her knowledge about the world of coaching to develop tips and tools that help coaches to understand themselves and their clients better. Previous workshop attendees have often commented on her ability to make the complex easy to understand and put into practice. In this one-day workshop, she will address the neuroscience of stress and resilience in ways that will be of immediate practical use to coaches. Often what is missing is our understanding of ‘How To’ behave more effectively. This workshop will help build important skills including:
How to differentiate negative emotions
Often, when you ask people how they are doing, they will say they are “stressed”. But what does this really mean? Stress has become a catch-all term for a number of negative emotions. In this workshop, we will explore how to differentiate these emotions and therefore provide greater clarity about what might be the best way to address the specific challenge.
How to prevent rumination
Some people find that they turn over negative events again and again in their heads without really changing the problem – this is rumination. Understanding what neural networks are active and how this can be disrupted can provide coaches with a tool to help coachees stop this.
Understanding stress and resilience
Why do we have a stress response and what makes some people more resilient than others? When we understand the neuroscience of the stress response and the nature of resilience, we increase the potential to help individuals who are stressed to build their own resilience.
Tools for building resilience
We will spend time discussing how the understanding that has been gained in the workshop can be used to create more “how tos” when it comes to building resilience.
The workshop will explore these topics with respect to neuroscience and by using interactive exercises to let you apply these new ideas immediately.The session will be informative and fun. Come and learn about how increasing your knowledge of the brain can help you and your coaching clients.
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. 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 collaborates with colleagues at Henley Business School to research aspects of leadership. As a result of these collaborations she has developed a unique combination of skills that allows her to bring neuroscience solutions to individuals and organisations.
Patricia provides access to Applied Neuroscience through customised training, consultancy and open programmes. She brings both her training as an NLP practitioner and her neuroscience background to this work. This allows her to combine the latest neuroscience with practical interventions to immediately impact real world challenges facing individuals, teams and organisations. Her customers include Henley Business School, Oxford Saïd Business School, Headspring, Cartier, Sage, UK Government departments and financial institutions.
The current revolution in our understanding of the complexities of human behaviour provides an opportunity to use our brains better. Understanding and communicating this information requires a new breed of professional both with expertise in neuroscience and experience in the ways in which neuroscience can be used to tackle real world issues. Patricia’s range of experience and expertise is exquisitely suited to this role. She enjoys working at the interface between science and the business world, and finds this role challenging and exciting.
ICF Paris International is an English-language initiative by ICF Chapter Paris Ile de France.
