The pandemic and the emerging awareness of broken educational systems has left educators exhausted and ready to quit. Many educators have moved on. Dr. Norwood discusses their latest research on how heart coherent coaches could offer hope to educators in need of a regenerative, resilient, and nourishing ecosystem. This information is applicable to any profession or client base.

Coherence is an efficient state of being, generating alignment between our mind, body, emotions, and spirit through the power of the heart. This electromagnetic field, generated by the heart, is detectable by other individuals and can produce measurable effects on others. Practicing heart coherence techniques yields significant and sustainable improvements in health and wellness. These improvements include significant reductions in stress, depression, anxiety, anger, fatigue, and burnout to name a few. There is an increase in caring, contentment, gratitude, peacefulness, resilience, vitality, and emotional buoyancy.

Join Dr. Norwood to learn about the power of heart coherent coaching and how it may represent another evolutionary step in the application of evidence-based approaches to coaching.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover how depleting and renewing emotions are shown to have different physiological effects which directly affect brain function and impact on our decision-making, communication, and stress levels.
  • Understand how the biological communication between the heart, the brain, and the rest of the body energetically feeds the field.
  • Appreciate the power of the heart as you learn to access heart intelligence within yourself and your client.
  • Practice two heart coherent intelligence techniques (Quick Coherence and Freeze Frame) to help you recharge your emotional system and access your inner wisdom.
  • Discover statistically significant outcomes with Drs. Norwood and Burke’s research on educators’ health and well-being.

Key Points

  1. Personal heart coherence is not only attainable as a coach, but we have the capacity to create a new baseline within our brain to operate more consistently in this state of Beingness.
