While most coaches believe that emotions are important in coaching, they often lack a simple, practical way to bring them into their client conversations. This concise session will introduce you to a new interpretation of emotions, a simple method for understanding their meaning and purpose, and practical ways to integrate them into your coaching. Your comfort with emotions will increase which will allow you to easily and organically use them as a coaching tool. You will find that working with emotions directly can deepen and shorten your coaching and often produces more sustained results.
1. A new, practical interpretation of emotions that allows you to easily see the logic of emotions and leverage them as a coaching tool
2. How to reframe emotions as an ally rather than an adversary and how they can be trusted to support and guide you
3. Dan’s Emotions-Centered Coaching model and a live demonstration showing how it is used
The following ICF Competencies will be covered:

Dan is a champion for Emotional Literacy, and works with leaders, educators, and coaches worldwide. His passion is helping emotional literacy become common sense and emotions a tool for daily use.
He has authored four books on emotional literacy and its application to coaching. He regularly leads his course Emotions-Centered Coaching for coaches and “people who support people” including leaders, therapists, educators, faith leaders, and parents.
He has worked with leaders in the U.S., Germany, Italy, El Salvador, Mexico, Slovakia, UK, Singapore and Canada. He often combines individual and group work and is the originator of Emotions-Centered Coaching.
Dan also created The School of Emotions with Lucy Núñez (business partner and wife) to offer learning and resources to anyone interested in developing their emotional literacy. Dan believes all humans have an innate capacity for emotional learning. School of Emotions offers books, games, webinars, and courses suitable for beginner or advanced learners. Coaches, leaders, educators, safety professionals, or individuals wanting to grow in their ability to understand, articulate, and use emotions as a tool will find what they need. If it doesn’t already exist, Dan and Lucy will collaborate on its creation. For coaches, you’ll find courses and certifications in Emotions-Centered Coaching and for leaders, you’ll find coaching and mentoring focused on emotions as a leadership competence.
