Motivating clients – inspirational and creative techniques

In this one day master class we will explore the theory of motivation and experiment with a range of motivational techniques for use with clients of all ages and life situations. The day will be practical and draw on solution focused, cognitive behavioural coaching, a bit of NLP and motivational interviewing, with a theme of what will inspire/ motivate clients.

Webinar Series - Introduction to Emotional Intelligence (EI)

07/07/2014 16:00 - 17:00

Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to monitor one's own and other people's emotions, discriminate between different emotions and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behaviour. EI is increasingly identified as central to careers success and progression. This webinar explain in more detail what EI is, the value and relationship of EI to career development, how it may be used in career coaching, how EI can be developed, and how you can get trained in tools. There will be time for questions and further resources will be signposted. “EQ has twice the power of IQ to predict performance. EQ is also a better predictor than employee skill, knowledge, or expertise.” - Gerald Mount, The Business Case for Emotional Intelligence.
