Great coaches move us. They move us through a basic human process- our emotions. The effective coaches establish a deep emotional connection with others called resonance. They are literally, in tune with others around them. They create and nurture these resonant relationships through mindfulness, hope, compassion, and playfulness. In coaching, the combined effect of vision based coaching and resonant relationships with the client results in dramatically more effective coaching experiences. Unfortunately, most coaches are too focused on problems and specific remedial goals and lose their effectiveness over time. Based on decades of his own and colleague’s research including dozens of longitudinal studies as well as hormonal and neuroimaging studies, Professor Richard Boyatzis will share examples of what effective coaching feels like, as well as understanding the neural processes that foster or inhibit it.
