About The Luncheon | NEUROSCIENCE AND ACTIVE LISTENING | FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2019 | 11:30AM-1:00PM | NASHVILLE

Presented by: Mark Wallace, Ph.D.

Active listening is a core competency for professional coaches and leaders, and understanding what is happening in the brain as we listen with all our senses is key to developing that competency to a high level.

We live in a multisensory world where we are continually bombarded with information from all our various senses. Our brains have been designed to effectively integrate this information in order to provide us with a coherent perception of the world. Despite the ubiquity of these multisensory processes, we are often unaware of them and the manner in which they can bias our coaching actions and perceptions.

The first part of the presentation will focus on describing how these multisensory interactions shape our view of the world (using some compelling illusions as examples) and highlight some of the underlying brain processes that support effective listening. 

The second part of the talk will focus on how our multisensory brain can be changed through training, and how such brain plasticity can be directed to improve cognitive abilities and executive function of both coaches and those they coach.
