Interview with Robert Holmes

Neurocoaching models – three brains revisited

Neurocoaching is an emerging field where the discoveries of neuroscience are interpreted and applied for use by coaches for their clients. In this interview I spoke with Neurocoach Robert Holmes on the various brain systems and their high degree of interconnectedness. Then we explored the way theories have been divisive and searched for integrative approaches that deal with state and offer choice. Robert is an expert in the science of human behaviour and performance enhancement with a passion for neurology, leadership and the psychology of potential. His work involves bringing deep and honest insight to upgrade performance, build resilience, enhance communication and develop teams. He believes it is important to bring hard science to coaching, and that coaching practices be evidence based and research backed.
