Description of Course
In our Western culture we speak as though thoughts and emotions are separate processes, and operate with a bias for rational intellect above emotions. But brain research is redefining the rational brain as a feeling organ that thinks. To understand what’s happening in any moment, we can’t rely on intellect alone. In fact, we need to think and feel to understand more clearly what’s happening within and between us.
Empathy is one of the most important qualities we possess as coaches. It involves accurately identifying what another person is thinking, feeling, wanting and intending; knowing what it is like to be the other without losing our own emotional boundaries. By building empathy “muscles,” we can identify the real conversations that need to occur.
