Coaches who have completed the full 8 weeks of The Brain Science Advantage are invited to join our Masterclass, a community of coaches working to apply, integrate and add to the knowledge and skills they gained in the course

The Masterclass meets live on a weekly basis for 60 minutes. James chooses a new brain science-based theme each month, and introduces new information on that topic each week. He then facilitates discussions and breakout groups centered on application and client scenarios.

The Masterclass is an invaluable way to stay current on the latest brain and behavioral science, and workshop ways to apply it with your clients. You’ll learn about new books and studies each week, keeping you on the very cutting edge of science-based behavior change.

But the Masterclass is more than just educational–it’s a dynamic forum for connection and collaboration. It’s an opportunity to engage with like-minded peers, share insights, and forge invaluable professional relationships. 

Completing The Brain Science Advantage for Coaches 8-week course is a prerequisite for joining this group.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Masterclass meets live every Thursday at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern time.

Each session lasts 60 minutes.

Definitely not. It’s so much more!

While we often use what we’ve covered in the course as a jumping off point, James is always presenting new ideas, tips, tools, and strategies based upon the latest books and studies he has been reading. This is the very best way to stay current on the most cutting-edge brain and behavioral science and how it is helping people change their lives. 

You could think of the course as Brain Science 101, and the Masterclass as a graduate-level seminar.

No problem!

All Masterclass sessions are recorded and added to our on-demand archive. So long as your subscription is current, you will have access to the session you missed, plus all past sessions. 

The Masterclass is structured as a monthly subscription. With a current subscription, your access to the on-demand archive is unlimited.

However, just as with a magazine or streaming subscription, should you choose to cancel, you lose access to the archive. You can stop your subscription at any time, and re-start later if you wish.

As long as they find it valuable!

We have coaches who have been with us for years, and say that the weekly Masterclass is a vital part of their professional development, helping them keep up-to-date on the latest brain science and in-the-know on what successes other coaches are having applying brain science with their clients.

We have other coaches who join for 6 months to complete their certification, and then move on. 

You can stop your subscription at any time, and re-start later if you wish. Whatever works for you!

No. We have lots of coaches who attend the Masterclass purely for the weekly deep dive into new brain science content and the opportunity for community and collaboration with other coaches. 

However, your attendance will be logged and should you choose later on to work toward certification, you will already have your Masterclass credits in the works.

Unfortunately not. As of now, we are only able to offer CCE credits for The Brain Science Advantage for Coaches course.

The course offers 30 CCEs from ICF, and is the prerequisite for joining the Masterclass.

Not yet. We are hoping to have this built out by the end of 2024. For now, lots of fruitful connections are happening organically by coaches exchanging contact information and networking on their own.

No guarantees at this point, but we’ll keep you posted!
