 Coaching for Burned-Out Overachievers : Remaining Emotionally Agile and Resilient  

MCC Carol Courcy, who will visit Singapore from the US,will lead a fun and meaningful event intended to go beyond emotional intelligence to emotional agility in our day-to-day lives. She will show that, thankfully, burned-out over achievers do not have to change everything for everything to change! To be more effective or feel less stress, we don't need to have more time, more help, a bigger bank account, a different spouse, parent, boss or more clients. All we need is to add to our current level of emotional agility ( already have some skill!). Carol's coaching philosophy is to make these kinds of important life changes easy to understand and simple to implement.      

Specific subjects that will be covered in this session include:

  • What is emotional agility?
  • Emotional Reverberation: Why coaches must pay attention to their own and clients' level of emotional agility? And where would a dose of emotional agility be a benefit to you?  To a client?
  • Practice simple ideas for increasing your own emotional agility
  • Q&A of how to do this with clients

Dear ICF Community,

In the summer month of July, we are excited to bring forth your self-empowerment on the art and science of Self-Leadership. Our facilitator, Andrew Bryant, PCC is an executive coach, founder of Self Leadership International and the author of “Self-leadership – How to become a more successful, efficient, and effective leader from the inside out”. Andrew supports managers and 'C level' executives to face their tough challenges and organizations to create leadership and coaching cultures. He is experienced in closing the cultural divide between Asian & Western approaches to leadership.

Session Overview

In this session, we will examine the role of self-leadership in performance and how to coach people to operate with self-leadership, specifically in the boundary of “Responsibility" towards our clients. As coaches we must be mindful of this boundary to remain effective and professional, and we best serve our clients when we help them to be clear about what they are responsible for and to. Participants will have the opportunity to share both their own and client challenges around this concept, followed by a demonstration and the chance to practice new skill.

Benefits of Session

  • Develop your professional presence
  • Establish clear boundaries in your coaching practice
  • Gain insight into toxic dependencies
  • Have tools to move clients from helplessness and blame to focused action
  • Increase confidence in dealing with difficult coaching topics
