Emotional Intelligence is fundamental in developing a successful coach-athlete relationship, and ultimately enhancing performance and well-being. But what exactly is EI, and how can you harness the power of it to your advantage?

While Emotional Intelligence may sometimes seem like a kind of Jedi mind trick from Star Wars, rest assured this webinar will guide you in understanding EI, how to use specific tools and strategies, and unleash the “force” in your coaching role. Specific emphasis will be placed on developing resiliency and overcoming athlete setbacks and emotions in the heat of competition.
