The Role of Empathy in Coaching

Empathy is often considered a soft skill, but we argue that is an essential skill in coaching. Empathy is crucial to developing and maintaining relationships and not just a "soft" strategy for "soft" coaches. We take you through what empathy is, how it relates to emotional intelligence, the benefits of empathy, and, finally, how to demonstrate empathy.
