September 20 (Thursday due to the Jewish holiday) - Coaching Others to Manage Workplace Emotions with Bob Loftis
November 14 - a week early due to Thanksgiving

Coaching Others to Manage Workplace Emotions
Bob Loftis
Thursday, September 20, 2018

Please join us for this event planned by Christine Young and Belina Pignataro.

Often women are expected to be the nurturers in the office to help others handle their emotions. Dropping into the role of a coach can help lift this burden and assist the other person to come to terms with their feelings. In this session we will explore ideas and methods you can use to help others recognize that only they can deal with how the world impacts them emotionally. Concepts and skills presented in this workshop will be helpful to you in the workplace, with your family and friends.

In this presentation, key topics will include:
 - Recognizing triggers, boundaries and value
 - Identifying loaded words
 - Asking powerful questions
 - Importance of careful listening

Bob Loftis has contributed as a manager and award-winning designer in learning and development, as an effective software product manager, and as a respected coach, consultant, and facilitator. Bob is the Principal of NowForward Coaching, guiding individuals and teams to meet and exceed challenges we all face.
