This session is an exploration of the topic which will be of interest to both coaching supervisors and experienced executive coaches.
It starts with a quick overview of what is currently known about the brain and why this is of considerable value to executive coaches in the practice of an emerging profession.
Then it will look at how the supervisor and supervisee might use this knowledge for the benefit both of the client and the process of supervision itself.
The session draws from the content of a recently published book: Coaching Supervision: Advancing Practice, Changing Landscapes. (Birch, Jo & Welch, P., (eds). London: EMCC/ Routledge) which includes a chapter by Paul Brown, Saba Hasanie and Dr Henry Campion of how the new knowledge about human behaviour that is coming from the modern neurosciences might be used in supervision.

A consulting clinical and organisational psychologist and executive coach and supervisor, Paul Brown is Professor of Organisational Neuroscience at Monarch Business School Switzerland and Visiting Professor at Henley Business School. He has in recent time co-authored Neuropsychology for Coaches: understanding the basics (2012); River Dragon (a novel, 2014); Neuroscience for Leadership: harnessing the brain gain advantage (2015), which won a category Gold in the 2016 Chartered Management Institute’s ‘Management Book of the Year’ awards; and The Fear-Free Organization (2015).

In February 2016, when there were still seventeen Republican candidates in the field, he predicted there that Donald Trump would become President of the United States.
Living in Laos, Dr Brown consults and teaches in S E Asia, the Middle East, Europe and America. He has developed a world-first distance-learning Masters program in Applied Neuroscience in Organisations and a 10-month CPD programme, now being delivered in Singapore and Hong Kong and planned for Malaysia, called The Science of the Art of Coaching.
Having held the world’s first professorial appointment in organisational neuroscience (at London’s South Bank University) he also taught annually at the UK’s Royal College of Defence Studies for twenty-five years. He has a long-standing professional advisory interest in how family businesses are handed on to the next generation and in innovation, creativity, start-ups and incubators. His final book will advance a general theory of the individual and the organisation.
One day he will retire and pursue his passion for making fine furniture with the hardwoods of S E Asia. But that’s a little way off yet.
