Less choice than you think
It's unusual for a leadership coach to tell their clients they haven't got as much free will as they think. Kinda goes against the "you can do it." message that is part of premise of coaching.
But it is a message I've been giving for years. Why? Well because it is true.
For real change to occur we've got to be honest about the system (the brain) and not pretend or ignore reality.
There has been research around for a decade or two showing a lag of around 1/2 a second between a decision being made and "first person experience" of making the decision - which in neurological terms is a very long time.
This latest piece of research puts a further nail in the coffin for Free Will as it is commonly understood. When an fMRI can predict a 'free will' decision 11 seconds before the person making the decision experiences the sensation (illusion) of making a 'choice'.
So, if you want to change the outcome you've got to change the underlying algorithm - the brain network itself. If you want to learn HOW to actually change then drop me a message or give me a call.
