Behavioral Communication Coaching is a psychological approach (forward looking not backward) including skills transfer, to achieve sustainable behavior change in a short time frame. The operating principles of behavioral coaching originate from multiple disciplines including behavioral science, evidence based, psychology, neuroscience, and brain-based learning. Cognitive Behavioral Coaching (CBC) works to understand the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Thoughts create feelings causing behaviors to happen. “Change your thoughts, change your life,” could be your mantra. Coaching focuses on the present to change your future.
Prior to COVID, a European investment bank invited Nancy Kazdan to remotely coach and train their Analyst moving into sales. He had no previous sales experience.
