Coaching multiple brains
Have you ever had a client that agrees on action steps and doesn’t follow through with them?
Ever struggled with a client to find what they “really” want? Are they really connected to that goal?
As a coach or manager, it can be a frustrating place to support people through the change they say they want when they can fall time and again.
There is a good reason, they may well be sabotaging their efforts and it’s not to annoy you! you may be pleased to know!
There is a good chance it is a miss alignment of their brains! WHAT? I hear you shout. Yes, that is right. Science now proves we have “functional neural adaptive networks” let’s call them brains for short. We have a brain in our head one in our heart and one in our gut and they all have very different jobs to do. Different personality styles function with different patterns and you will find that each of us uses strategies that are not fully “aligned” Our preferences are suboptimal and so we get frustrated. We don’t take action or we do take action when it is not in our best interest. These are just some of the patterns.
Until now coaching and counselling for that matter has been very head based. We have left the body out of it! This method has its roots in NLP and behavioral modeling. The founders Grant Soosaloo and Marvin Oka from Australia took over two years to synthesize the knowledge from experts in their respective fields. This synthesized knowledge confirms what ancient wisdom has been teaching for thousands of years, now we can prove it

You are looking to understand why the client has not been able to achieve what they have come to you for help with, this is a very different focus and shows beautifully why they are not currently achieving what they say they want. If it was easy they wouldn’t be with you, would they?

The certification itself is a 4-day program to explore and unpack the way to coach this way. It is a stand-alone method and so will not interfere with your current expertise.
We have over 1300 global coaches at present and this number is growing rapidly. There is an ongoing community, you will never be alone (unless that is your choice)
My own personal experience has taught me I was not connected to my gut. Taking action has been my challenge, even when steps were identified. I have trained in coaching many times over the years and nothing I have experienced has brought me to a closer understanding of myself and others as mBIT has. that is why I chose to take action become certified and gain certification to train others. This is the way to your wisdom, pure and simply you most Courageous, Compassionate and Creative self and then you can help others to get there.
Steven Pinker famously says that ‘the mind is what the brain does’.
Oka and Soosalu suggest that a greater mind is a function of a
greater brain, that comprising head, heart, and
