  • Anette Prehn Social scientist making neuroscience human and useful

    I am a social scientist (M.A.), leadership trainer, thinker, poet, motivational speaker, and professional certified coach (PCC), helping bright, enthusiastic people excel.

    I have specialised in turning the insights of neuroscience into down-to-earth tools, and I help executives, managers and teams boost their change processes, relational power and results.

    If you want to learn more about my work feel free to check out Play Your Brain or my webpage. My ambition is to reach young and old with powerful and fun brain-based tools and my next course on Udemy will be on "Brain-Smart Kids".

    I believe in art and science united. I believe in making difficult things really easy. I believe in the power of the tiny tweaks: boosting strategies and results by changing approaches slightly and brightly.

Reframing should be in the water we drink, scientists say. Reframing is the ability to change your perspective deliberately. But why is it praised like that? What happens in the brain when you reframe? What are the inner and outer effects? And how do you do it?

You are invited to share your most powerful reframings - either as a comment to the group or by contacting Anette Prehn at

This course is targeted for professionals, managers and executives which will show in the examples given and the questions asked. However, anyone is free to join so that as many as possible may harvest the benefits of reframing.

    Interesting course

    This is a free introduction into the technique of Reframing. The goal of the course is to explain what it is, what happens in the brain when you do it and how to apply it. The teacher explains concepts well and is easy to listen to. The videos are of a good quality. They consist of slides with graphics and other informations which is quite helpful. The technique of Reframing was a useful addition to my repertoire of resilience skills although it's not a "miracle cure". Overall, the instructor succeeded in explaining the basics in layman terms. I can recommend taking the time to go through this course.

    By reading the title of this course, I wasn't sure what "reframing" was - so I'll tell you in a nutshell. Reframing is a skill that will help you successfully manage your thoughts and feelings about difficult situations. From this course I've learned: * That my view of a situation or person is simply that - a "view". * Several techniques for changing my view. * More about how my brain works. I'm also picky about production quality and if you are too, there are no worries here. The instructor, Anette Prehn, is excellent. She has a talent for explaining concepts in a way that is easy to understand and does so with ample real-life examples. The production quality of this course is one of the most professional I have seen on Udemy. She has obviously invested a lot of time and resources to make this a great experience for the learner.

    Very interesting and good base course into neuroscience

    This is a good introductory course into neuroscience and is not too scientific at all. It whets your appetite into exploring this area further. The theory is very interesting as are the examples. Anette has a very nice voice and manner and I enjoyed listening to her. A lot of points she says really make sense. Quality of the production is great too with slides that give interest.
