Emotional Intelligence Coaching

Isn’t it time to get serious about your professional development?

As an emerging leader, first-time supervisor or even a more seasoned manager, you may find your skills, patience and empathy being pushed further than ever before.

What if you could lead with more Emotional Intelligence? Lessen the overwhelming feeling and additional stress that seem to accompany leadership? Resolve conflict and hire the right people for your team more easily?

Emotional Intelligence coaching will help you to build your skills and focus your energy on behaviors that get work done with and through people. Banish the old-school “command and control” management style, and become a “coaching” leader who brings out the best in people!

As your Emotional Intelligence Coach, Kim Langley provides helpful assessments, skill practice and specific strategies for success within the framework of Emotional Intelligence. Kim brings her vast training knowledge and experience to the coaching table, while respecting your own experience and perspective.

What You Can Expect:

  • Kim provides a one-on-one or small group tutorial
  • She surfaces problem areas, then responds very flexibly with resources and skill practice that maximizes the client’s retention
  • Define problem areas using valuable assessments
  • Engage your creativity and consider new ways of thinking
  • Learn problem solving, negotiation methods and how to have difficult conversations like a pro
  • Build confidence and enhance relationships up, down and sideways

 

One-on-One Coaching Engagements

Here the focus lies exclusively on you and your areas of concern. You and Kim will meet more frequently to begin the engagement (i.e., 2 times per month) and less often as things progress (i.e., 1 time per month)…unless there’s a precipitating incident that requires more attention.

You’ll also have access to Kim via email and phone.

Each engagement is customized to the client and lasts for a minimum of 6 months. Request a sample contract.

 

Small Group Coaching (2 to 4 people)

If your organization is trying to groom people for leadership, you might consider a small group experience. Together, participants concentrate on topics that they have surfaced themselves as crucial, or that the employer has identified, or a combination.

Within the small group, they explore strengths and opportunities, uncover roadblocks, and build practical skills. Participants are asked to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Small group coaching can be done via breakfast meetings, lunch meetings or whichever venue works best for your group. See a list of concerns that groups might explore.

Case Study

Client: A leader in a mid-size not-for-profit

Main concern at one coaching session: Ongoing conflict between 2 team members; client attempted several times to resolve unsuccessfully

EI coaching outcome: The client and Kim brainstormed and practiced strategies for negotiation and resolving conflict. Using points from their discussion, the client decided which approach would work best in her situation, honed her strategy and used it with the team members.

At the next coaching session, she and Kim debriefed and she shared her success story. The client had facilitated a meeting between the team members, drawing a pie chart on a white board to depersonalize the situation. She asked them to help her fill in their “need to haves” and “nice to haves” until the pie was full. Both team members had to give and take, yet walked away feeling confident in the solution. The client was delighted!
