But transitioning from people manager to empowering coach is not always easy. Managers already have a lot on their plate. That’s why we’re making it easier for them.

At Synaptic Potential we know management and we know coaching. So we’ve put these two together to create a great feedback-based coaching programme  – our Coach-Savvy Manager Programme. It’s specifically for organizations who want to level up their managers to unlock the brain potential of their teams through the power of coaching.

“It was a privilege to hear you talk about neuroscience in a way that is accessible and relevant for an HR audience”

“Thanks so much for your session, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Once again, it was a privilege to hear you talk about neuroscience in a way that is accessible and relevant for an HR audience.

How this programme is different

To develop a skill like coaching you can’t simply read a book or go on a course that teaches you the pillars of coaching. We know from experience that it just doesn’t lead to meaningful or sustained improvement. It’s also why so many managers and organisations fail to see tangible results from their investments in these types of coach training. At Synaptic Potential, we do things differently.

This is why we’ve built our Coach Savvy Manager Programme on the scientific foundations of how people learn best and give managers the opportunity to actively practice their skills and receive meaningful, in the moment, feedback in order to grow their coaching potential. In doing so we…
