He spent years doing research with some of the best psychologists in the world at Columbia, Tufts, and Yale. He's a content creator and course builder and his course called, “Brain Science for Coaches” has been rated as one of the best courses for coaches and is currently certified by ICF for 30 continuing coach education credits. He's a certified coach through the Whole Fit coaching program. He also built one of the only brain-based positive psychology curricula in the Middle East and trained thousands of Arab youth in partnership with Queen Rania of Jordan.

Program Description:

With our work demands getting faster and faster, and the pressure to balance home and work continually rising, brain science has now shown that the key to our most productive, creative, and happiest selves isn't working harder, it's working smarter. Discover the power of pause--and why scheduling micro-breaks charges your mental battery and how it helps avoid coaching burnout. Taking care of yourself and building "stress resilience" can increase both your and your clients' productivity and happiness.

Program Outcomes:

Participants will learn how to:

  • Demonstrate how to implement “brain break” interventions, which help your clients to “recharge” their “body budget,” thereby increasing resilience, self-control, and creativity.
  • Differentiate between whether your clients need help with their brain’s “break system” (willpower) or “accelerator system” (motivation), as well as design interventions that will help clients build the neural pathways for whichever system is in need of strengthening.
  • Explain to clients how their brain is similar to their cell phone battery and that it needs to be periodically recharged throughout the day through micro-breaks and intentional self-care.
  • Differentiate between activities that drain the brain and activities that recharge the brain, thereby helping facilitate new habits that incorporate more recharge activities into the daily routines of their clients
