Cultivating a More Resilient Coaching Mindset
Thursday, May 19, 12 PM-1:30 PM CDT
As professional coaches who use the framework of emotional intelligence in our work with clients, we recognize more than ever the benefits that come from strengthening and balancing our own empathy and assertiveness. We believe that in doing so we cultivate a more resilient coaching mindset, which benefits us and our coaching clients.
During this presentation we will explore the research on empathy and assertiveness and share our own mental model for cultivating a more resilient mindset. We will discuss the importance of accurately defining and identifying behaviors that accurately represent healthy empathy and assertiveness. And lastly, we will explore how improving our own empathy and assertiveness improves our ability to better Embody a Coaching Mindset.
● Improve your working knowledge of empathy and assertiveness
● Consider more thoughtfully areas for improvement, yours, and your clients
● Understand the key benefits and consequences for Embodying a Coaching Mindset
● Identify steps to cultivate a more resilient coaching mindset “I refuse to believe that you cannot be both compassionate and strong.” ~

Many coaches find a niche - for Marilyn Orr, MA, CEC, PCC, that niche is emotional intelligence and resilience. She published “How Resilient Are Your Shocks?”, a practical workbook on increasing resilience, and loves helping clients increase their capacity.
Marilyn is the training partner for the world leader in emotional intelligence assessments, MHS, for South/Central Texas both completing assessments with clients and equipping other professionals to use the EQ-i 2.0 and EQ-i 360 tools.
You might catch the odd word or phrase that lets you know Marilyn has Canadian roots (eh!). Marilyn and her husband Bill realized a long-held dream last year in the completion of their sustainable, modern wellness and event center in the Texas Hill Country.
