Welcome to Coaching Emotional Intelligence in the Classroom, a practical handbook that will help you nurture the emotional intelligence (EI) of those you teach whilst developing their coaching skills. The activities in this book seek to uncover and highlight for the children those aspects that make up EI in much the same way as a coach will ask questions to uncover and highlight an individual’s resourcefulness. We don’t believe that you can tell someone how to be emotionally intelligent in the same way that knowing the skills of coaching will not make you a coach; discovery, awareness, questioning, consideration, acceptance, practice and application will move the individual forward. That is what we have set out to encourage.
