Daniel Goleman - EI Coaching Certification

After writing about Emotional Intelligence for years, Daniel Goleman is pleased to announce the release of his Emotional Intelligence Coaching Certification Program. The program is in-depth, akin to a professional degree, and is intended for coaches or those interested in coaching for Emotional Intelligence. It draws upon evidence-based behavioral change theory, positive psychology, unconscious bias, compassion training, neuroscience, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Techniques, and Emotional & Social Intelligence. Students will be trained in these concepts and applications, as well as in a defined coaching philosophy they will practice with clients. Applications for the first cohort are now open and will be accepted on a rolling basis.

In the months to come, Daniel Goleman will also release online-based and facilitator-led training programs for Emotional Intelligence at a lower price point. These will be geared towards personal development of Emotional Intelligence.

Research has shown that Emotional and Social Intelligence (ESI) can positively shape our relationships and our outcomes – at work, and in life – yet developing the suite of ESI competencies in a lasting and effective way can be a challenge without the support and guidance of a qualified coach.

Drawing upon evidence-based techniques, real-time feedback, and an applied coaching model, our aim is simple: to give coaches a framework to help their clients build Emotional and Social Intelligence. We strive towards a transformative growth experience that brings beneficial impact not only to the clients who you serve, but their entire circle of influence, the organizations in which they play a role, and society at large.

When coupled with the wisdom and guidance of an ESI Meta-Coach – the person who will be your coach in this program – the result is greater Focus, Self-Awareness, Emotional Balance, Empathy, Positive Outlook, and Adaptability.
