EAE Business School has begun a series of coaching sessions aimed at international students who, in view of the situation caused by the outbreak of Covid-19 (SARSCoV-2) and the closure of the campuses, are staying in Madrid and Barcelona, far from their families. The service is directed by Jordi Vilà, the Director of the School’s Master in Executive Development, Emotional Intelligence and Coaching at the Barcelona Campus.
The aim of “Consultancy EAE” is to create a group coaching dynamic, with a discussion group in which the participants can express their concerns and reflect together on the issues they face, obtaining responses from the group itself, with the lecturers on EAE’s Master in Executive Development, Emotional Intelligence and Coaching acting as facilitators throughout this learning process. For the time being, the sessions are scheduled for the 2nd, 9th and 16th April from 16:00 a 17:00, on the Zoom platform.
All the lecturers/coaches who are participating in the sessions are certified by the ICF, at either the PCC or MCC (Master Coach) level, and lecture on EAE’s Master in Executive Development, Emotional Intelligence and Coaching, including Félix Ortiz, Andreu Ortiz, Montse Taboada, Tomás López, José Luis Pérez Huertas and Georgina Barquín, as well as Jordi Vilà, with the aim of responding to complex situations in terms of the students’ mood and wellbeing.
In terms of the international students taking a program at EAE, 40% have headed back to their home country and are following the classes online. However, 60% are staying in Barcelona and Madrid and, in a foreign country far from their families, dealing with solitude and uncertainty is even more challenging.
These people have found themselves far from home without the option of going back due to the air travel restrictions. We have responded to a diverse range of enquiries that we received by email. With this accompaniment, the students have felt supported and have been able to change their outlook of the situation”, explained Jordi Vilà, the head of the service and Director of the Master in Executive Development, Emotional Intelligence and Coaching at the Barcelona Campus.
