FaQ

What is the Flow Research Collective?

The Flow Research Collective is a peak performance research and training institute. On the research side, we’re partnered with universities like Stanford, UCLA, USC and institutions like Deloitte, attempting to understand what happens in the brain and body when human beings are performing at their best. On the training side, we build training programs that help business leaders improve their professional performance by accessing flow states more consistently. 

Is The Performance Neuroscience Coaching Certification an online training?

The Performance Neuroscience Coaching Certification is fully digitally delivered. That means you can do it from anywhere. However, it’s nothing like your usual “online course”. Most online courses have a 3% completion rate. The High Flow Coaching Certification has a 100% completion rate. This is because it involves live engagement with incredible experts and leaders from all across the world. It’s not just a big, empty video library.

What’s the purpose of “booking a strategy session” for The Performance Neuroscience Coaching Certification?

One of the important features of the Performance Neuroscience Coaching Certification is the group coaching and community. What makes this so great, is that everyone in the program is an inspiring, mission driven coach, consultant or facilitator. The application process allows us to curate this kind of community and ensure it’s a good fit for both sides.

When does the Performance Neuroscience Coaching Certification start?

You can join as soon as you’re accepted into the Performance Neuroscience Coaching Certification after your strategy session. However, we do reach coaching capacity, so if you’re interested, we recommend you apply right away.

Why does the Performance Neuroscience Coaching Certification exist?

As far as we could tell there is no comprehensive neuroscience based coaching program that focuses specifically on teaching people to coach flow states. We thought we ought to create one!

Where does the Performance Neuroscience Coaching Certification happen?

The whole training is delivered through our world class learning management system. This means you start the course at the top, and everything from the coaching sessions to the videos to the exercises, are laid out simply for you. No hunting for links or trying to find times!

Who are the main instructors in the Performance Neuroscience Coaching Certification?

The content will be taught by 3X New York Times bestselling author and world renowned peak-performance expert Steven Kotler and Rian Doris, Kotler’s Co-Founder here at the Flow Research Collective. You’ll love their complimentary styles! We also have other world-leading experts and master coaches teach certain modules.
