The Art of Coaching Emotions

How to navigate emotions in your coaching conversations, and learn from their wisdom.

Coaching emotions can be intense and intimidating. When teachers are overwhelmed, frustrated, or resistant it can seem like you’ll never make breakthroughs to serve children. But it doesn’t have to be this way. 

When you acquire knowledge and skills, coaching emotions can be satisfying, and even joyful. When you effectively coach emotions, you catalyze growth and unlock the potential for transformation. 

The Art of Coaching Emotions workshop takes you deeper into the knowledge and skills introduced in Arise: The Art of Transformational Coaching (2024). It enables you to support clients to experience their emotions as sources of wisdom that spur their growth, not as obstacles that keep them stuck. 

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 where everyone thrives.

What Our Community is Saying

"The Art of Coaching Teams workshop went beyond meeting my expectations. It felt so good to be part of a community of learners who wanted to be there and were so open and vulnerable with their contributions to the learning. I liked the role-playing best. It was scary, but it was impactful to practice real potential conversations in a low-stakes way. I really appreciate the learning experience and would take another Bright Morning course in a heartbeat."

What Our Community is Saying

"I feel like each time we have our 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!"

Annie S.
What Our Community is Saying

"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."

Rebecca L.
What Our Community is Saying

"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."

Andrea M.
What Our Community is Saying

"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."

My favorite part of being a Bright Morning member is the access to the incredible resources associated with our membership. Bright Morning is already generous with the free tools they provide educators and, as a member, there’s even more access. Another favorite part of my membership is that the incredible trainers actually show us how to use the tools in Elena’s books for full impact. I’ve learned so much about myself and my work and have leveled up my skills as both a coach and trainer. This membership is the gift that keeps giving!
