Beyond the Page Podcast ~Insights from Neuroscience: The Role of Empathy in Shaping Well-Being and Coaching

We are excited to share with you the next interview in our “Beyond the Page” series featuring Anthony Jack

Discover how your brain’s battle between analytical thought and empathy shapes your understanding of the world as we sit down with Professor Anthony “Tony” Jack. He is a Beamer-Schneider professor of ethics and research fellow of the Coaching Research Lab at Case Western Reserve University. Dr. Jack has a PhD in psychology and trained at world-leading centers for neuroscience in Europe and the USA.  He started the Brain, Mind & Consciousness laboratory for brain imaging, psychology, and experimental philosophy in 2007.

Anthony “Tony” Jack’s lab has published critical reviews of overhyped uses of neuroscience, revealed the cognitive basis for brain deactivation and anticorrelated network phenomena, and conducted the only brain imaging studies of coaching.

Prepare to have your mind stretched as we delve into the intricate relationship between neuroscience, psychology, and mental health. Tony, straddling his roles as both scientist and coach, offers a unique vantage point into the challenges neuroscience poses for coaching, while also revealing how empathy and ‘soft skills’ play underrated, yet pivotal roles in our mental and interpersonal wellbeing. Join us for a profound journey into the human psyche, one that promises to leave you with fresh insights for personal and professional growth.

In this episode, I talk with Anthony Jack about his article published in our December 2023 issue.
