As people truly are the most precious asset any business can have, it is essential for any people development practitioner and performance improvement professional to have an accurate understanding of how the human mind works, learns and thinks, and how it can be optimized. To validate and improve practices like coaching, teaching, talent development and performance improvement, it has to be grounded in neuroscience to ensure better efficiency, accuracy and results.

You can’t improve what you can’t measure. If you want to optimize performance you need to know how the drivers that optimize brain performance will impact a person’s unique neurological design. Neuro-Link has developed the most comprehensive, multidimensional neuroscience instrument assessment yet, to determine this. Click here for more information about the LRP™ Advanced.

This online Higher Neuroscience Coaching course is the second phase of the Neuroscience Course offered by the University of Pretoria in partnership with Neuro-Link. In essence it is a Brain Profile Practitioner Program for coaches, sports coaches, educators, trainers, therapists, counselors, psychologists, consultants and organizations to learn the fundamentals of the neuroscience of coaching, learning, thinking and how the brain processes information. This information is organized into a brain profile assessment that illustrates 13 learning receptiveness aspects that impact who we are, how we learn, think and process information.  Neuro-Link has registered this brain profile assessment as the Learning Receptiveness Profile™ (LRP). The LRP™ brain profile assessment is a multi-dimensional, neuroscience assessment that measures 6 drivers that optimize brain performance and 7 factors that determine a person’s neurological design. It is the most comprehensive neuroscience assessment that exists, as it assesses all the primary factors that influence brain performance and learning receptivity.

Practitioners are trained and certified to assess, debrief and sell the unique Learning Receptiveness Profile (LRP™) as an assessment to drive results in talent selection, talent management, performance improvement, happiness, wellness and reducing risk of human error. The LRP™ is also a tool for coaches and practitioners to generate additional revenue as participants of this course can purchase and sell brain profile assessments after they have complied with all certification requirements.

The Higher Neuroscience Coaching course is an online, self-study program for professionals who are passionate about developing people, identifying their potential and improving performance. The program will enable you to become a Neuro-Link certified practitioner of one of many brain profile assessments that Neuro-Link offers to adults, students and children, depending on your expertise and areas of influence. It will also help you to align your coaching skills with your and your coachee’s neurodesign,assisting you to accurately understand the coachee and align your coaching approach with the coachee’s neurodesign, enhancing your impact profoundly. The course consists of videos, manuals, infographics, assessments and assignments. Once all theoretical and practical assignments have successfully been completed and the prospective practitioner has passed with 80% or more, Neuro-Link will certify the practitioner as competent to compile and debrief people on the brain profile assessment they choose. The University of Pretoria will then be notified and you will also receive a certificate of competence by the University of Pretoria. After certification you will become a Neuro-Link Brain Profile Practitioner of at least one of our brain profiles. You may also then choose to become a Neuro-Link business partner, which offers various business possibilities.

  • It is my firm belief that the Neuro-Link Learning Receptiveness Profile (LRP) is an invaluable tool from which all athletes and business people can benefit immensely. I believe the better one knows oneself the more successful you will be in maximizing your potential both in sport and life. The LRP gave me greater clarity on how I process information and specifically how stress impacts my unique neurological design and thereby potentially hinders my performance. This information now empowers me to learn how to better manage myself under pressure and improve my brain optimization.

    I believe the LRP is a great tool for both coaches and athletes. There is no relationship more vital to success in sport than the coach – athlete relationship and this profile gives huge insight into how each person functions best and what teaching styles work most effectively on the individual, thus empowering the coach to most effectively communicate information to the athlete and thereby attaining greater success. The LRP profile has further proved vital in my post athletic professional life as now my business partner and I better understand each other, our unique differences and how to best work as a team, thus increasing our productivity and hence attaining greater success.

  • I was introduced to Dr. Andre’ through a TEDx talk after tirelessly watching every video and reading every book I could find on the subject of brain-based therapy. I immediately reached out to him and the very next day my husband and I had the pleasure of experiencing both his brain profiles personally. After working very closely with Dr. Andre’ to bring his innovative assessments to the USA, I am honored to say that he is not only one of the most brilliant minds I’ve ever met; he is a humble, generous, trustworthy, and lives with great intention and purpose. His system of “developing people” is like nothing I have ever seen. I am not only one of his first licensed USA Neuro-link practitioners and offer it in my private practice, I jumped on the opportunity to become one of his first USA business partners as well. Dr. Andre’ has developed a program that changes standard learning into so much more. It gives everyone an opportunity to reach their highest potential; in school, at work, or in life. Thank you Dr. Andre’ for your dedication to advancing the awareness on a subject that is sometimes overlooked. Your work is so necessary, but more than that it gives people the ability to go from surviving to thriving!

  • A “life-changing experience” is how I can best describe meeting Andre. Authenticity, expertise, curiosity, excitement for discovering and developing people’s potential, love for others, desire to contribute, spiritual wisdom, and above all PASSION for his calling are just few words in an attempt to describe who he is and what he gives so generously to those he encounters in his personal and professional path. Indeed, Andre is an outstanding example of a leader and an authority in the field of neuroscience; a man with mission that inspire people like me to become his partner, to join a vision in which individuals are aware of their potential and learn how to break the barriers to be the best they can be. Thus, I recommend my Teacher, Partner, and Friend, Dr. Andre Vermeulen to a professional or a business leader wanting to discover how neuroscience can be a solution to assess and develop human potential.

  • I first met Andre when I presented at ASTD 2000. His presentation on brain science and learning was extremely interesting. I especially appreciated his information on the application of color in learning environments. Since then, Andre and I have become friends. I would gladly work with him at any time on any subject. He is dedicated, serious about his work, outgoing, and a wealth of knowledge. Any company who contracts him, or anyone who attends one of his presentations, is lucky indeed.

  • I have attended Andre’s sessions at the ASTD International Conference. One word: outstanding! They were always standing room only sessions. Several reasons. First, Andre is an excellent presenter. Informative, entertaining, practical. Second, Andre pulls together research from a topic that many of us have a hard time understanding and helps it make sense. Third, he keeps information and knowledge current, constantly integrating the latest research. I highly recommend Andre.

  • Brain Profiling is the ultimate tool to assist learners, corporates and individuals to find the real “you”. This profile is highly accurate and strengths based. Each and every learner should undergo the Neuro-Link Learning Receptiveness Profile to assist them in becoming even better at learning. Brain Profiling is a simple proven process to turn study frustrations into academic achievement. Corporates and adult individuals use this tool with success discover their strengths and areas for further development in all areas of their lives. The Neuro-Link Brain Profile changed my life in terms of my profession, marriage and relationship with others. I witness daily how learners just ‘gets it’ after doing this highly recommended profile. Many thanks to Andre and his team
