Working Together

Neuroscience + Coaching

The mind is the one tool we use the most everyday, as well as the tool we know the least about. Incorporating a deeper understanding of Neuroscience enables greater mastery in working with it.

Dose Performance coaching specializes in 1:1 coaching for business leaders and athletes. Whether you, your team, or your murder mystery party club are looking to increase your aptitude in leadership or neuroscience, Dose is here to help. Ready to work together?

 

For Individuals

programs

Coaching is about conversations that create momentum and performance. If you are curious about how a coach might benefit you, sign up for an intake call: in an hour we will discuss Dose Coaching methodology, your outcomes, answer any questions, and explore something together through coaching so you can get a feel for the process. Intake calls are always free: we want to make sure that our approach will support your outcomes, or else we will support you in finding a different coach who can. If you think you might benefit from coaching, book a 1:1 consultation below

For Leadership and Teams

A Brain-Based Approach to Leadership and Teams

1-3 Hours

The one tool we use more than any laptop, notebook or smart phone is our mind. Paradoxically, it is the one tool we tend to know the least about, and have the least access to support in maximizing its potential. Understanding the basics of neuroscience as it relates to leadership and team dynamic creates a powerful foundation to not only increase one’s own performance, but also the contribution of those around them. Integrating the practice of coaching not only fits well with what we know about how the brain functions, but also adds a valuable skill into the organizational tool belt to leverage in a variety of projects and roles.

In this session we will take a look at:
• The benefits of applying a coaching within teams
• Why coaching as a skill generates greater long-term results
• A coaching methodology to put into practice
• The experience of practicing coaching skills
• Fundamentals of cognitive neuroscience
• The integration between neuroscience and leadership
• Brain-based models for leading and working with teams


The Neuroscience of Goal-Setting

1-3 Hours

Setting goals has become a more wide-spread practice in both athletics and the business world in the last decade. While different approaches resonate differently with each individual, approaching goal-setting from the perspective of how our mind operates creates a uniquely valuable conversation. Balancing research in cognitive neuroscience and psychology with the art of self-exploration, this session sets participants up to ask some big, important questions while giving them the tools to leverage their mind as a powerful tool (and perhaps equally important, to avoid common pitfalls within the practice of goal-setting).

In this session we will take a look at:
• What is goal-setting
• Why goal-setting is valuable and useful
• The brain in the context of goals (habit, change, bias & schema)
• Pitfalls/challenges in the world of goal-setting
• Practicing setting goals with the brain in mind (virtues, feeling,


Thoughtful Leadership

1-3 Hours

Leadership matters, but what does it mean to be a high-performing leader? At times, the experience of thoughtfulness and performance might seem at odds with one another; this session is designed to enable participants to begin exploring and implementing valuable skills around thoughtfulness and leadership to drive tremendous performance within their teams. In order to create a more equitable and inclusive future of work, the cornerstone in generating momentum is to increase the capacity and quantity for thoughtful leadership in every organization.

In this session we will take a look at:

• Defining the role of a leader
• Distinguishing between leadership, management, etc.
• Analyze why leaders matter
• The relationship between leadership & performance
• Define performance
• Thoughtfulness vs mindfulness
• Why thoughtfulness matters in leadership
• How thoughtful leaders generate performance
• Goals
• How thoughtful leaders leverage and support setting goals in their team to drive performance

Brain-Based Approach to Mindfulness

2 Hours

What does it mean to be mindful? Is it a process? A skill? An end-result? The biggest challenges facing the growing conversation of mindfulness are understanding what it is and why it is important. It is easy to think of mindfulness as being zen and sitting on a beach, but how can we develop our mindful capacity to help us with stressful jobs, challenging projects, or creating balance in our lives? Understanding approaches to mindfulness from a cognitive and applied neuroscience standpoint provides an accessible and impactful perspective into bringing mindfulness to our everyday lives. Yes, there will definitely be meditation and insightful neuroscience tricks.

In this session we will take a look at:

• Defining mindfulness
• Understanding mindfulness from a neurological perspective
• Application of mindfulness (tools, techniques and habit)
• Why mindfulness matters (research, data, etc.)


Innovation and Thinking Differently

Programs

Failure + Innovative Leadership

2-4 Hours

The three most common solutions offered to any organizational problem centre around three words: training, strategy, and innovation. This session is designed to go deep into our understanding of what innovative leadership is, and how to leverage it as a tool rather than a blanket “solve-all.” To do this, we first explore a necessary counterpart of innovation: failure. Once we are clear on the role of failure as a currency for innovation, we then dive into tools and approaches to thinking about, talking about, and leading through innovation.

In this session we will take a look at:
• The relationship between failure and innovation
• Defining failure
• Understanding our relationship with failure
• Tools to process failure
• Leading through failure
• Defining innovation
• Categorizing innovation into a usable and accessible concept for teams
• Why brainstorming does not work (and how to do it differently)
• Building an innovative culture as a leader

 

You finish what you start. This is a great maxim for conversations, invoices, and coffee.

When it comes to bigger work, work you cannot possibly do alone, this belief erodes your effectiveness.
