Practitioner Programme Content
The Practitioner programme is designed to provide individuals with the tools, techniques, materials and knowledge necessary to lead stimulating and effective coaching sessions, training courses and workshops based on the subjects of Neurological Dominance and behavioural preferences.
The programme consists of two one-day modules. This structure minimises the impact on participant's time and enables them to complete a short practical assignment between the two modules, greatly enhancing the learning.
Module 1 - Neurological Dominance
The first day of the programme focuses on the background to the subject, the creation of individual bain dominance profiles, debriefing of the profiles to individuals and groups in workshops. The day is broken down as follows:
- Understanding Neurological Dominance – We are all individuals, different from any other person in many ways and the most individually distinct part of our make-up is our brain. This part of the course looks at the way in which the human brain develops, how it generalises and leaps to conclusions and how it develops preferences for the ways in which it interprets information.
- Profiling Individuals – In this section you will learn how to analyse and interpret profiles and how to debrief them to individuals. To make this real, the data you will use will be the results from your own profile, which you will be invited to complete prior to attending the course.
- Running a Workshop – MyBrain International have made the process of running a workshop and gathering the Neurological Dominance profile information from delegates extremely easy. In this part of the course you will learn how to use the on-line administration system and about the support materials and services provided by MyBrain to ensure you deliver the most professional and impactful event.
- Assignment – Between the two modules you will be asked to create profiles for one or two of your friends, family or colleagues and de-brief them on the results. Not only is this good practice, but it also provides the starting point for discussion during module 2.
Module 2 - Advanced Applications & Teams
The second module builds on the Neurological Dominance information provided in Part 1 by looking at more advanced applications, in particular, the way the subject can be used to great effect when working with groups of people or teams. This second day will cover the following subject areas:
- Review – The workshop will begin by reviewing the results you obtained from people you profiled and answering any questions that arose as a result of the exercise.
- Extreme Profiles – Although most profiles conform to a number of basic patterns, some do not and can be quite difficult to explain. The most extreme examples contain elements that may appear to be contradictions, but because all profiles are an illustration of a person's preferences, each has a logical explanation.
- Contextual Applications – During the day we will consider how the subject of Neurological Dominance can be used in different contexts. For example, when considering introversion and extroversion, communication or creativity.
- Group and Team Data – When applied to teams, the subject of Neurological Dominance becomes enormously powerful. By using the combined results from each of the team or group members, you will be able to determine the sort of activities a team is likely to be good at, the types of things the team may overlook and the likely areas of conflict. When de-briefed positively, the results of team profiles can provide teams with extremely valuable insights that can assist them in achieving their true potential and help them prioritise strategies for success.
- Team Exercise – You will be introduced to an exercise that illustrates how a knowledge of the subject of Neurological Dominance can help people improve their contribution to a team, as well as improve the performance of the team overall.
- Assignment – After the formal part of the course, delegates are asked to run a Neurological Dominance workshop with a group of people and to submit a short written assessment of the resultant team data to MyBrain.
Upon successful completion of the programme, delegates will be awarded their certificates and be entitled to use the title MyBrain Practitioner.
