Emotions in Coaching: Selected Frameworks
This Session is Eligible for 1.0 Coach Continuing Education Units (.5 CC & .5 RD)
SPEAKER: Dr. Deepa Awal, Ph.D., MCC
DATE: December 7, 2022
TIME: 11 a.m. PST
Emotions shape our experience of reality and provide the fuel for action. When we are open, enthusiastic, ambitious, curious – we feel positively about ourselves and act in service of our goals. When we are resigned, afraid, resentful – we resist acting in service of our goals. What do we need to understand about emotions as coaches? And how can we manage emotions to serve our clients?
In this webinar, we will explore:
- The inextricable link between body, emotions, and language
- A framework for linguistic reconstructing of emotions
- A framework for four commonly observed moods
- Some commonly held beliefs about emotions
Our goal will be to create awareness of how emotions impact actions, how we can support our clients in becoming aware of and managing emotions, and how listening to and creating awareness of emotions constitute the heart of transformational coaching.
