As a coach and a thinking partner, you often help clients who are navigating professional transitions. Whether a new assignment or promotion, a relocation, a lateral move, a demotion or the loss of a job or retirement, each situation stirs up questions about readiness for the new challenges. Change and transition experiences typically heighten emotional responses and stir up predictable anticipation, uncertainty, anxiety, and worry. Even positive professional transition can trigger some of these emotions. With a coach as a thinking partner, the dynamics involved in major change can be named and broken into more manageable parts. Professional transitions can represent unique crossroads and opportunities for individuals who are primed and supported in learning and developing throughout the change process.

Neuroscience, when combined with an understanding of the predictable dynamics during a professional transition, can make transparent what happens in the brain when emotions are charged or heightened. Neuroscience can equip us with keys to unlock the chemistry behind behaviors and offer techniques useful in up-regulating positive reactions and down-regulating negative reactions. In this presentation, I will share a neuroscience informed transition framework, a brief illustration of how the framework can be applied and a recent case study.

  1. Understand the powerful, predictable dynamics at play throughout professional transitions
  2. Observe how a neuroscience informed framework can be applied with clients who are experiencing a professional transition
  3. Learn how neuroscience can be used to make communication more effective
