Unlock your brain’s potential to transform your career

We have been taught to believe the way we think and behave is “hard-wired” into our personalities, however modern neuroscience research now knows this to be untrue. Just like every other muscle, the brain can be trained and flexed. And once you understand how you’re programmed, you can take control and steer it in the way you want!

It’s not about positive thinking but thinking differently

 EforP’s Neuroscience Trainings demonstrate how you can practically apply neuroscience and psychology insights to boost your professional potential as a young talent, HR leader, or executive – or unlock it in others as a coach.

Our Neuroscience courses draw on the latest findings from neuroscience, sociology, and psychology research – plus our team’s real-world corporate experience. The EforP courses shape this expertise and insight into skills for real-world applications to enhance your own professional potential and equip you to unlock the potential in others.

Who Neuroscience Upskilling courses are for:

Young talent: Do you want to take a step up the career ladder but are afraid of making mistakes? By learning the fundamentals of your brain, you’ll discover failure is only a temporary state on your way to success. By changing your thoughts, you’ll change your future.

Executives: Once you as a leader understand your brain, you can help those you lead understand theirs. By developing your EQ and management skills with neuroscience upskilling, you’ll understand those unlike you and know how to train and retain the next generation of top talent.

HR professionals: If you’ve seen the limits of what interviewing by the book can achieve, neuroscience insights can give you a much-needed edge. You’ll be able to interpret your counterparts better and find the right talent that will challenge and grow your organization.

Coaches: Instead of simply collecting another certificate, neuroscience upskilling is an easy and to-the-point process to understand how you and your clients think – all based on a scientific background. Through the course, you’ll also discover how to use biofeedback machines and interpret the results. Once you’ve experienced the benefits yourself, you’ll be able to take the next step and become a certified Neuroscience Upskiller.

Join the right course for you

For too long, professional coaching and consulting has been based on gut instinct, esoteric methods, and a lack of understanding of how thinking and learning really happens. Neuroscience Upskilling courses are different: once you’ve finished a program, you’ll better understand yourself and your own thoughts. Our aim is to ensure that the 21st century human being and their most important muscle – the brain – reach their full potential.

EforP offers three escalating courses, each building on the last to increase the breadth and depth of your knowledge and extend the practical applications. Our Neuroscience Upskilling training sessions are held online and on-site. Your training programme tells you which sessions are in person, in either our Berlin or Shanghai office, and which sessions are online.

Online sessions

To participate in our online sessions, you will receive a login code. With this, you can access the online training area, which as well as hosting sessions also hosts all the training material that you will need to complete. Each session follows a similar format:

  • 20 minutes of trainer/specialist input
  • 15 minutes for you to reflect and respond to the trainer by typing back what you learned (approx. 300-650 words)
  • 15 minutes of additional material related to the topic, including videos
  • 10 minutes final stop and check, where participants summarize their key learnings

Every time you satisfactorily finish an online session, you will receive training credits in a personal learning account. We’ll be able to see how many lessons you have completed, and how many remain. Those students who have gathered the required learning credits by completing sufficient training sessions will qualify for on-site trainings here at our EforP International Berlin or Shanghai offices.

On-site sessions

On-site sessions take place in our Berlin or Shanghai offices. Sessions run for either a half or full day, generally from 9:30-16:30. Check your training programme for the details.
