It is a roller coaster ride of emotions for both adolescents and their parents.

Our Process

Step 1: Understanding Emotions

Improving adolescents’ emotional intelligence begins with noticing, naming, and normalizing their emotions. In this program, they will gain a thorough understanding of emotions and how they work. They will learn to deconstruct 65 emotions and see how they produce the quality of their interactions with others. Upon completion, they will have the distinctions to identify their emotional barriers and shift their emotions when needed.

Step 2: Reflecting Emotions

We have designed a structured learning path with daily activities for reflection and practice. There are weekly goals and participants share their progress with our coach and get his feedback to identify their strengths and areas for improvement. In this program, they are responsible for their learning while we facilitate the process which complies with the International Coach Federation's ethical standards.

Step 3: Articulating Emotions

One of the ways we can expand emotional competence is by articulating our emotions. When trying to solve our problems, we seldom talk about the emotions underlying those problems. Most times, we judge emotions as positive or negative or deny the fact that we even have emotions. This program offers a safe and open environment for adolescents to express and talk about their emotions without reservations.

Our Experts

Why They Love It

Our coaching is different and your adolescent will love it.

Coaching is a creative process that helps adolescents maximize their potential. A coach can help them eliminate their blind spots and see things differently. Coaching is rooted in learning as opposed to counseling or therapy which are rooted in psychology and medicine. Many adolescents resist the idea of engaging in counseling and it carries a certain degree of stigma. They also resist attempts to point fingers and impose rules. Your adolescent will love our approach because we put the responsibility for learning into their hands and facilitate their learning process.

Emotional Intelligence for Parents of Adolescents

While parenting children is not easy, raising adolescents is harder and requires a different approach. When your children are young, you have more authority and they seek a sense of security and care from parents. When they approach adolescence, your children begin demanding more independence and their affinity gradually shifts from parents to peers. Many parents wonder what happened to their child so suddenly and their efforts to influence them often make things worse.

Emotions-Centered Coaching for Adolescent Coaches and Educators

If you want to coach adolescents and resolve their challenges, working with their emotions can be particularly effective because most adolescents are not emotionally literate. Most have difficulty articulating what they feel as an emotion. This means there is an opportunity for you to grow your coaching skills. This program will also help you work with adolescents and parents to develop their emotional competence.
