A Fireside Chat with Marc A Brackett, PhD and Jeffrey Hull, PhD  

How are you feeling? Have you been riding a roller coaster of emotions lately? A blend of anxiety, stress, and frustration?  You aren’t alone. In this live presentation, Dr. Marc Brackett, director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and author of Permission To Feel, will share strategies that can help make the ride a little smoother. In this highly interactive session,  Dr. Brackett will also join the IOC Director of Education, Dr. Jeffrey Hull for a deep dialogue with participants about how to utilize research-based strategies to support yourself as a coach -- and your clients -- in a wide array of performance domains: overall well-being, healthy decision making and relationship quality.  As coaches it is more important than ever that we work effectively with our own feelings -- so we can be present, focused, and available to support the emotional regulation of our clients during these challenging times.  We hope you will join us!
