Description of Course
Emotional Intelligence(EQ) is the key to how we interact with others and move through the world around us. Knowing about our EQ is a fundamental tool for improving our self-knowledge, self-esteem and level of happiness. And being a good coach begins with understanding and accepting ourselves so that we can be fully available to our clients. Awareness of our own EQ and that of our clients can help us connect with them on a deeper level and understand behaviors around: self-regard, assertiveness, stress tolerance and empathy, among others. EQ is an essential weapon in any good coach's arsenal of healing and shepherding clients’ growth.
Join us for an engaging session on how knowledge of EQ can benefit coaches and coaching.
