Almost everything we’re trying to do in Agile coaching is behaviour change and all the interesting changes are happening at an unconscious level.
In his book Thinking Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman refers to this unconscious behaviour as “System 1”, that part of our mind that reacts instinctively and rapidly.
There are some simple cases where rationally deciding to change is enough to get that new behaviour although that’s rarely adequate. Ask a smoker or a gambler why they haven’t quit when all the logic says they should. Changing unconscious behaviour requires more than just a logical argument.
On this site and the associated training classes, we’ll look into the foundational skills for unconscious behaviour change. Taking from practical neuroscience, psychology, neurolinguistic programming, hypnosis, body language and other domains, we’ll give you a mix of theory and practical tips to elevate your skills.
This site is primarily written by Mike Bowler although it may contain contributions from other people from various parts of the unconscious behaviour community.
