Practical EQ Coaching Skills for Coaches


What is Emotions-Centered Coaching™?

Emotions-Centered Coaching™ is a methodology that focuses on a coachee’s emotions and emotional understanding. It does not preclude language or somatics but uses emotions as a central focus.

Working with emotions can be particularly effective because many people are not emotionally literate. Most have difficulty articulating what they feel as an emotion. This means there is an opportunity to explore together. That exploration not only can resolve the coachee’s current challenge but, also, help them develop emotional competence.
