Increase Your Chances of Success with Effective Communication
As a Social + Emotional Intelligence Coach©, consultant and workshop facilitator meeting with individuals face to face is a boutique service. Individuals/teams/families are already busy, running to another appointment is not an appealing prospect. Meeting individuals at their place of business, local coffee shop, park, restaurant or home (family session) provides the individual an opportunity to pick a place of comfort and convenience.
Engaging with others within their environments allows a coach to observe, provide timely feedback and support, as individuals define and adopt new strategies to reach desired goals.
As a coach face to face interactions, in diverse environments, allows for a greater understanding of an individual’s patterns. Communication is a complex process and has more to do with your non-verbal's, body language than what is being said. http://www.study-body-language.com/Verbal-and-non-verbal-communication.html#sthash.Y5VjUY7g.dpbs

If your job is to facilitate social and emotional intelligence development how can you provide your customer the best service via phone or video chats? I have asked other coaches this question, they state "I can see my client", yes you can but are you providing the best experience possible to assist your clients succeed? I believe that there is value in occasionally having a session via skype due to illness, travel or weather but I personally feel communication has an increased level of effectiveness when face to face.
Social and Emotional Intelligence Profiling does utilize technology. Individuals or teams who chose to participate in one of the profile styles will receive a link via there chosen e-mail to fill out their assessment or to provide feedback via a 360 multi rater profile. The data provided from answers is compiled and sent to me to review before the results are debriefed with the individual/team. Exercises are also provided to individuals via the internet to broaden awareness of self or discover strategies to develop specific competencies.
