Marina Riedi: “Be Emotionally Smart”

Our emotions are our true companions, whether we like it or not. They influence our behavior, decisions, relationships and many other aspects of our lives. Sometimes they do a good job for us and sometimes they don't. Good news is: we can learn to recognize, understand, express, manage and use emotions to our benefit. The science behind this is called "Emotional Intelligence" (EI).

Emotional Intelligence like Coaching has to do with personal development and unleashing the human potential.

What are similarities between Emotional Intelligence and Coaching? How can the strategies of Emotional Intelligence be used to coach clients? And how coaching can help develop Emotional Intelligence? Join this workshop to learn about synergies between coaching and Emotional Intelligence.
