Working with emotion in team coaching

conversations with compassion, courage, curiosity and connection

Hosted by David Clutterbuck

Basic level coach training tends to emphasise taking the coach and his or her emotions out of the picture as much as possible. Mature coaches recognise that using their authentic self is a critical competence – that coaching without connectedness is formulaic and sterile.

Simplistic coaching seeks to find simple, rational solutions that clients bring for discussion. But things are rarely that straightforward. Most issues — especially at executive level — are messy, complex and only resolvable by exploring emotions and values.

In this highly practical webinar, David Clutterbuck, pioneer of coaching and mentoring, shares a portfolio of tools for helping people recognise emotions and employ them to create positive outcomes.
