Are you looking to improve or develop your team or organization in the following areas: Stress, Absenteeism, Coaching, Recruitment and Retention, Strategic Management, Goal Setting, Networking, Resilience, Restructuring/ HR Transformation, Change Management, Employee Engagement, Mental Health, Conflict Management, Communication & Listening, Culture or other areas of concern.
There’s been a fair bit of research done on EQ (Emotional Quotient) and the great benefits associated with incorporating EQ into organizational development including the resources of Emotional Intelligence.
How about leveraging another very important part of EQ, namely Emotional Fitness?
The world of work has traditionally been seen as a world in which the dominant and most valued skills are mental and physical. They are the ‘hard skills’ of thinking and fixing, buying and selling, talking and making. Today, there is a growing awareness and understanding that our emotional skills or EQ are what make the difference between success and mediocrity. These are ‘soft skills. Here’s the problem. The soft skills are really the hard ones.
The development of coaching as a recognized profession and skill set has largely been an acknowledgment that it is difficult, without help, to deal with the things that block us from making progress, or leave us feeling frustrated and stuck, or unclear how to handle conflict or anger.
Emotional Fitness Coaching offers a unique set of tools designed for leaders who desire to hone their coaching and mentoring skills, or for coaches who work externally, wishing to do the same. The tools of Emotional Fitness have been developed over a period of nearly forty years by the Founder of Emotional Fitness Warren Redman.
The tools of Emotional Fitness work, are simple, and above all, they all acknowledge the individual’s ability to make their own best choices and be accountable for them.
There are five primary E-Fitness coaching tools. The first is Power Listening, in which you will discover the two things that prevent effective listening from taking place and the five stages of listening that make it work. The second is Learning from Experience, describing a system that encourages staff at all levels to consider and learn from what goes on in the organization. The third is Group Dialogue; a method of running meetings that transforms them from time-wasting and costly sessions into creative opportunities for significant change. The fourth is the Work scale, a questionnaire like no other that allows people to see their levels of satisfaction and frustration and provides them with the tools to make the desired changes. The fifth and final E-Fitness tool is Storytelling. The telling of stories in E-Fitness coaching is a refreshing and creative way for people to discover important things about the way they see things, including themselves and each other.
All of the E-Fitness coaching tools used in the hands of a competent E-Fitness coach, or leader who develops the skills, will improve communication, raise people’s level of motivation and loyalty, decrease stress, along with absenteeism and errors, and have a significant impact on the productivity, health, and profitability of your company.
