Practice Coaching 

The points to address for today’s one-to-one work are: 

  • Emotional Intelligence.
  • This can be used in both directions. Throughout the coaching call, help your client tap into their emotional intelligence. 
  • Ask powerful questions, such as: 

- When do you notice you are least in control of your emotions?

- What helps you feel in control? 

- How do you currently leverage your emotions in a positive way?
