The Emotional Intelligence Livestream #9


The Coach Approach:

Applying tools and methods of coaching to make work and life better


As a manager, partner, friend… person… many of us are grappling with complex and intense challenges.

  • Since coaching is such a powerful approach to problem-solving, what are the key principles and practices that any of us can use?
  • What best practices from emotional intelligence can we engage to have more effective coaching-style conversations with others, and to coach ourselves through complexity?

A powerful conversation on how the tools and methods of coaching can help ALL of us right now.


Coaching plays a role in almost all of the cases on effective applications of EQ in Six Seconds’ case study library. So we have a growing body of evidence to say that coaching with EQ works to untangle challenges and improve performance.

So, today, when SO many of us are in a place of deep uncertainty and challenge… can we use techniques of coaching ourselves? How? What can we try?

In today’s panel we have a truly remarkable group of experts. We’ll dive into these questions, interact with you who are watching live, and then at the end, we’ll share a very important summary of the key tools to put into action.
