Continuing the Personal Finance Virtual Learning Event's focus on effective behavioral change approaches, this 90-minute webinar will concentrate on Financial Coaching. The webinar will look at the historical emergence of coaching and consider the place that financial coaching has in the emerging contemporary framework for understanding financial well-being and the development of financial capacity. The distinctions between financial coaching, counseling, and education will be explored. We will then examine the primary role and tasks of the coach and explore the common core elements that underlie various coaching approaches. Finally, we will examine common core coaching techniques, as well as explore how some of these can be usefully incorporated into financial counseling and financial education efforts.
