The Key to Transformational Coaching
Dealing with the emotions that adults experience can feel like the hardest thing about coaching. When teachers are overwhelmed, frustrated, or resistant it can feel hard to get to conversations about instruction. But learning how to coach emotions is the key to unlocking transformative change in educators.
We can teach you how to coach emotions so that emotions are not obstacles to growth, but are resources for that growth. We can teach you how to coach emotions so that your coaches are no longer overtaken by emotions. We can teach you how to coach emotions so that you can create communities in which everyone thrives.
As you learn to coach others around their emotions, you’ll also see your own emotional resilience increase. The ability to coach emotions will transform your coaching conversations and is the key to creating joyful, resilient, equitable places of learning.

Prior to your workshop sessions, your learning begins with a self-paced exploration of foundational knowledge and tools that are essential for coaching emotions.
4 learning blocks, 8 hours total over 2 days
This workshop is a 2-day experience during which you will come together with a Bright Morning facilitator and a community of coaches to process your learning, observe masterful coaching, engage in coaching role plays, and receive feedback to sharpen your practice. Each day has two 2-hour learning blocks with an hour break in between.
"I feel like each time we have our TCA course I walk away empowered, inspired and with more tools to try in my coaching role. I am grateful to have the support from amazing coaches in my class. I think just having lots of time to role play is so beneficial to our practice!"
"The Transformational Conversations Accelerator is like a booster shot for my practice! I feel supported, full of good practice and excellent ideas. I made some great connections with amazing coaches from all over the country (and beyond!)."
"One of the richest impacts has been the web of understanding that’s building around our district as four of the curricular leaders participate in this same membership AND as more and more of our staff members participate in other trainings (Art of Coaching Teams, Coaching for Equity and/or Taste of Coaching for Equity). Having a common frame of reference and range of experiences has changed my learning into a richer, deeper, more powerful community learning experience."
"After 35 years in education, I feel rejuvenated and that I have a new sense of purpose. I will be eternally grateful for Bright Morning. You have been there when I needed you the most and have provided me with immense opportunities for personal and professional growth. I am grateful for Elena and for the dedication of her team to create world-class trainings. I am humbled and blessed to have stretched and grown within the safety of this community."
"In my experience, Bright Morning has always provided relevant, applicable, 'just-in-time' tools that have enabled me to build my practice on solid ground. My Bright Morning Membership has been the silver lining of my year. This offer has paid off exponentially. All learning experiences have added a new layer of understanding for me. Now that I’ve experienced the benefits of a year-long membership, I really can’t imagine going back to a 'once-a-year professional development' approach."
