course's star rating by considering a number of different factors
such as the number of ratings, the age of ratings, and the
likelihood of fraudulent ratings.

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.

Instructor Biography

Anette Prehn, Author, Social scientist, Behavioural Expert

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.
