You’re struggling to connect with an analytically-minded client, and just don’t know what to do. The client is skeptical: pushing back against your efforts to help them solve problems, pulling back when you try to build trust, demanding hard data instead of your tried-and-true intuitions. You’re worried that you’ll never be your best self with such analytically-minded clients, who often include CEOs, CFOs, engineers, doctors, lawyers, bankers, accountants, programmers, and so many others who come to us for coaching. Fortunately, behavioral science research on emotional and social intelligence can help you help them get the coaching support they need . This course offers case studies on effective use of emotional and social intelligence-based strategies by pioneering coaches to empower the growth of analytically-minded people in ways that align with ICF Core Competencies, providing you with clear take-aways to help you become an outstanding coach for such clients.
"I took part in the course "Coaching the Analytical Mind" of Dr. Gleb Tsipursky.

I and we focus strongly on helping people to make mindful and effective decisions. This program has deepened and broadened my knowledge and insight in an excellent way.
