Coaching the Analytical Mind

Session length: 90 minutes

2019-12-19T17:00:00-05:00 Thursday, December 19th 17:00 EDT

Do you want to be an outstanding coach for CEOs, CFOs, engineers, doctors, lawyers, bankers, accountants, programmers, and many other clients who come to us for coaching with an analytical mindset? Do you struggle to connect with clients who are skeptical and demand hard data, evidence, and answers instead of intuitions, stories, and questions?

Do you feel frustrated when such clients push back against your authentic and courageous efforts to help them solve problems, and pull back when you try to build trust and intimacy? Fortunately, behavioral science research on emotional and social intelligence can help you help them get the coaching support they need.

This session offers case studies on effective use of emotional and social intelligence-based strategies by pioneering coaches to empower the growth of analytically-minded people, building on a series of ICF Core Competencies to provide you with clear take-aways on becoming an outstanding coach for analytically-minded clients.

ICF Core Competencies Covered in the Session

  • Creating awareness in analytically-minded clients of their emotions and situations when their analytical mindset may be causing them problems
  • Direct communication with analytically-minded clients, balancing hard data and research with stories and questions
  • Establishing trust and intimacy with the client, through using the kind of evidence that’s convincing to analytically-minded clients
  • Active listening, to determine whether your analytical client’s learning style is deductive or inductive and targeting their specific information consumption needs

Establishing the coaching agreement, focusing on preparing for the almost-inevitable conflicts and addressing emotions.
