No doubt you have heard the words ‘Emotional Intelligence’ being used within the sports coaching context over and over again.
Ask yourself, and be honest, how clear are you on what these words mean and whose Emotional Intelligence we are referring to? Yours as the coach? Your coaching staff and colleagues? Or the participants, players and athletes you coach?
Emotional Intelligence, or EI, is the ability to identify, assess and manage your emotions, and the emotions of other individuals and groups. So, we are talking about your EI, specifically your Coaching EI.
In this free module, part of our Emotional Intelligence series, we delve into the area of self-awareness and how you as a coach can help your players to develop key skills on their own Emotional Intelligence journey.
