COP Mastery in Coaching

"Building Your Coaching Presence by Navigating Emotions"
In Conversation and Movement with Sari Marsden, PCC.

"For many people, especially in the corporate world, moods and emotions, like the body, are simply dismissed as irrelevant and inconvenient. They cannot be commanded and controlled and, as such, they are often seen as "dangerous" or "messy". But moods and emotions are critical because they set the frame for what we see as possible in a situation. If you are full of resignation or resentment, then you will see far fewer possibilities than if you are feeling peaceful or enthusiastic." (FIT TO LEAD - Transforming Your Leadership With the Five Pillars of Performance, by Marcus & Sari Marsden)

Coaching presence requires coaches to be fully conscious and creating spontaneous relationships with clients, employing a style that is open, flexible and confident. 

There are many ways to build your coaching presence; one of those is by learning about emotions.

By learning to experience emotions as they are, free from judgement, it can help your clients to create clarity in their decision-making process.

Join Sari Marsden in this 90-minute learning event, with the following objectives:

  • Develop emotional mastery through the practice of “Emotion Naming.”
  • Discover how to navigate emotions with breathing and body movement that is applicable for you and your client. 

Wear a comfortable outfit and be ready to move your body purposefully in this session. 

At the end of the session, you will identify the physical states and practices that can best support you in your own wellness as a coach.

This talk is based on the Fit to Lead book.

“A leadership book that offers a dynamic new vision of leadership development that places the role of your physical body firmly alongside that of your thoughts and emotions. Written by husband-and-wife team, Marcus and Sari Marsden, the book combines the principles of executive coaching, movement, nutrition and fitness training to provide you with a holistic system for transforming your leadership and producing breakthrough results for yourself and the people you lead.”
