  • Focuses on applications for supporting difficult change.

  • Emphasizes hands-on practice and building mastery through experience

Part 1: Foundations in Neuroscience 

Gain an in-depth understanding of the top 10+ Neuroscience-based models designed to support difficult change.

Part 2: Practicum

Experience a streamlined, transformational, step-by-step neuroscience-based coaching process first-hand to go beyond awareness and understanding of the theory and master how to facilitate using neuroscience-based models (using neuroscience-based models and tools for goal-setting, assessment, and change acquisition (approximately 12 weeks).

Part 3: Train the Coach

Practice combining the above 10+ top neuroscience-based models in your work with a client to complete your certification. There is no test (this certification is focused on giving you mastery of new change facilitation techniques not on testing your memory of content). Instead a KCI Certifying Partner will mentor you in real-time.

Different programs in this space vary by the number of participants, specific models covered, duration, and price.

Additional levels of certification:

Since brains only come in individual units (one per person), any certification in Neuroscience has to first start with the understanding of how change roles out at the individual level. However, KCI offers 3 more levels of certification in addition to the above foundational Certification in Applied Neuroscience: 

  • Neuroscience-Based Models and Tools for Coaching for "Non-Coachable" Individuals.

  • Applications of Neuroscience-Based Models to Team Development.

  • Neuroscience-Based Models and Tools for Organizational Development and Change at Scale.

Please contact us with questions or for more information about the above advanced certification.
