CCEU: in progress
A core skill for any coach is to motivate clients to achieve new goals. Psychological research suggests that this is best done by creating "bridgeable gaps." In this talk, I explore research on the role of gaps between the present and the future as creators of motivational energy. Then, I examine work on the importance of having a plan that will enable people to reduce that gap for driving people to act. Along the way, I will discuss the way that understanding emotions can help coaches to read the motivational states of their clients.
Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings.
