Coaching with Empathy Workshop

The Center for Coaching Excellence at Baldwin Wallace University will host a Coaching with Empathy workshop on December 3 at the Higgins Recreation Center.

The day begins with check-in at 11:30 a.m. followed by a 90-minute workshop presented by the Positive Coaching Alliance. This research-based workshop demonstrates how to seamlessly integrate empathy into everyday coaching by creating strong connections, listening to athletes, and understanding how kids’ experiences impact how they show up to your practices.

The workshop will emphasize:

  • The impact of stress on young people
  • The role of empathetic coaches
  • How each coach’s own experience impacts their relationships with athletes
  • The “PACT” framework for applying empathy
  • Action steps to apply “PACT”

Attendees will actively participate in the workshop, including small group discussions and will practice applying the tools to real team settings. Coaches will take away tangible tools and tips to create an empathetic environment with their team so all kids feel safe, seen, heard, and valued.

As part of the workshop, participants will also receive a complimentary pass to watch the Baldwin Wallace women’s and men’s basketball teams take on Wilmington College in a special doubleheader starting at 2 p.m. in Ursprung Gym. Family members are also invited to attend the basketball games for free, which includes a complimentary voucher for the concession stand. That option may be added at registration.

The Coaching with Empathy event is $50, which includes the workshop, lunch and basketball doubleheader. Registration is required by November 30.
