Emotional Intelligence coaching models
Emotional intelligence coaching is both fascinating & practical. It works by acknowledging the importance of emotions, our key psycho-physiological mechanism of human consciousness. Emotional intelligence coaching still focuses on open questioning techniques, but unlike much executive coaching, you’ll come to realise how much power there is, beyond the words. Our emotions communicate so much more subtley & pervasively than we realise. Our coaching can look at facial cues, body-language, physiology & help us integrate how they all work, together. Here lies the true power of human development & communication, building ‘integrity’ in its truest sense. An EQ coach builds positive emotional experiences for clients using coaching methodologies including but not limited to;
Emotional Intelligence – Building awareness, expression, management, of emotions
Emotional Resilience – Building mind-sets of success & for mitigating stress
6 Pillars of Resilience – Building yours & other’s resilience
Executive Coaching – Building practical skills focussed on goals & growth
Positive Psychology – Building positive perspectives, mind-sets, self-motivation & wellbeing
Meditative States – Developing practices of presence for peace, clarity & connection e.g. such as mindfulness meditation
Neuro-Linguistic Programming – Learning & using tools & techniques to create positive beliefs, behaviours & success

EQ coaching tools
Our coaching uses a wide range of methodologies, noted above, as well as tools dependent on the coaching situation & client. Emotional intelligence coaches not only facilitate change & success for clients directly through these techniques, but we also can teach the same coaching skills to clients for them to use to better lead, succeed & engage at work. Here are just a few examples of more detailed tools we use;
–EQ assessments – Revealing your detailed EQ scores & analysis are the powerful first step to change. Read more here.
–Emotional journaling – We show you how to nurture this daily practice & why it can make such a big difference during & after your coaching sessions.
–Remote-coaching – Though based in London in the United Kingdom, we utilise Zoom, Skype & WebEx to coach & collaborate with organisations & people all over the world which adds enormous flexibility to our work.
–Psycho-physiological activities – Mindfulness, meditation, yoga, TRE are just a few of the incredibly useful mind-body techniques we discerningly recommend and use. We take great care to match approaches & tools to fit each client, as is appropriate for them.
Caution: Be wary of one-size-fits-all approaches or panaceas. We carefully match how we work to our client’s needs. For instance due to certain client’s emotional make-up or strong preference they may find it difficult to even contemplate meditation practices to begin with. This may simply be a bridge too far initially. Knowing this in those circumstances has proven vital for certain clients who would otherwise have struggled & potentially become disheartened with generically devised approaches. One size does not fit all.
EQ coaching style
Directive vs Non-Directive
Emotional Intelligence coaching works to bring out your best by fitting the coaching style to your needs. Coaching relationships are personal & can differ depending on things like needs, context & favoured way of working. For instance, you may prefer a more directive approach depending on how much & in what way you wish to be supported & encouraged. Directive coaching can feel more dynamic & push you. If learning is the key focus, however, you may prefer a less directive approach where you are encouraged more to find your own way. This may help you take maximum responsibility for your choices & success, in the long run.
The coaching style may also affect the amount & type of contact between sessions. Generally sessions every 7-12 days work well with some email contact, feedback in between. Don’t worry though, we’ll help you strike the right balance in the first few sessions.
Things that affect coaching style
Remember also that the optimal approach will be affected by many things including your role, needs, availability, work-load, (project) time-scales, work-life balance, context of well-being & your psychological make-up. Read more about the difference between coaching vs therapy here.
