As coaches we quite rightly pay attention to questions, presence and listening, but often take the context for granted. The dynamics of how we position ourselves relative to others strongly affects us emotionally, and these dynamics are mostly played out unconsciously. This is particularly important in teams.
This introductory session will set out the importance of emotional space, how it affects us as coaches and clients, what to look for, and practical ways to enhance your coaching through its use.
We take up space and usually do not think about it. We share space with others in many ways and are unconscious of the effects. However, our relationship in space impact our emotions.
How we relate to others in space reflects how we relate to them emotionally and how much influence we have.
This summit will explore how we take up space with our bodies and how it affects others – the science of psychogeography.
You will learn how to get information about teams and individuals by looking at how they unconsciously use the space at their disposal.
This summit will explore the importance of emotional space, how it affects us as coaches and clients and what to pay attention to when you interact with clients and teams.
We will give some immediate practical application for coaches.
A coaching session both team and individual, starts the moment you are in the same room, not with the spoken words.
