Psychological flexibility (a/k/a emotional agility) promotes valued living in and out of the workplace. It makes it easier to choose to act to move toward one’s personal and professional goals and values and overcome unhelpful thinking patterns, difficult emotions and all that shows up and gets in the way. Psychological Flexibility predicts and reinforces mental health outcomes and contributes to optimizing performance and overall functioning (Kashdan, Rottenberg, 2010). Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) seeks to train psychological flexibility in work settings. The ACT matrix is a simple and intuitive model that eases the integration of psychological flexibility training into your existing coaching practice to enhance client engagement and outcomes. The ACT matrix can help better align your coaching practice with your clients’ expectations, enhancing agility and flexibly adapting to client needs.
