Learning 3 Brains Note-taking

Jan Georg Kristiansen introduces the neuroscience-based note-taking method with the 1-page Navigator.

There are many ways to take notes, but how effective are they? Are you a 'conversation leader' who wants to create a safe space for participants? This note-taking method is based on neuroscience and supported by 'FollowTheClient® | Navigator', a one-page map. The goal is to support the coachee in finding the perfect questions so that the coachee can find their own perfect answers.


Note-taking with the Navigator is according to how your 3 brains - head, heart and gut -  and body thinking systems commonly cooperate and dance with each other during the coaching, mentoring and teamcoaching. Instead of exhausting yourself in difficult conversations, you learn how to keep the energy flowing and enjoying being a coach, making coaching a safe place for both coachee and coach.

The neuroscience-based 'FollowTheClient® | Navigator' is used in note-taking to assist you in writing coachees words which come from their 3 brains - the head (thought patterns), the heart (beliefs and values) and the gut (behaviours and activity) - in designated spaces of the map. Seeing on paper how the brain works makes it easier to ask the right questions at the right time. The Navigator supports following the client by taking some pressure off the coach by bridging the gap between our slower mental thinking systems and our faster body thinking systems. Your clients succeed in getting emotional ownership of key results.
