Emotional Literacy

smiley-2979107__480

At the time of writing this blog Covid-19 means we have been in lockdown for sometime and most people are missing the regular routine of both work and our personal lives. At a challenging time like this understanding and coping with our feelings can be a real challenge. The Feelings Wheel by Dr Gloria Willcox may be useful for helping individuals pin point how they are feeling, something that may help with starting to find ways forward in understanding and coping with those feelings. In broader terms the wheel might also be a useful tool generally from a coaching perspective, helping coachees focus on their reactions to different work scenarios along with helping them extend their emotional literacy when considering the behaviour of others.
