Purpose: The key keywords of this era are “leadership”, “communication” and “empathy”. Even in the field of education, in order for professors and students to exert leadership and followership together, an education in which communication and empathy are harmonized, but it can be understood and practiced as a true education. In our educational field, we are trying various teaching methods that can breathe with the students, but we are still facing difficulties in that the creativity of students is limited due to the progress of evaluation for measuring performance. So, this study aims to examine the implications of applying emotional coaching and integrated art therapy teaching methods that can stimulate students minds in the AI era to leadership education of police, military, and fire-fighting officials. Method: This study analyzed the contents of the FGI interview with the students after applying emotional coaching and integrated art therapy education method to 250 students who participated in leadership education related to police, military, and fire- fighting officials for 8 months from March 1 to November 30 in 2019. In the future, education that this era aims for should be changed from knowing to can mind that can be practiced based on solid basic knowledge and converted into education that can move on its own. So, what is the teaching method that makes students have a strong will to actively practice? This study is to examine that emotional coaching and integrated art therapy are teaching methods that capture students minds. Results: The effects of the emotional coaching and integrated art therapy teaching method can be seen as three main factors. First, it helps students develop and stabilize their emotions by expressing their emotions in a comfortable quarter. In other words, while the integrated art activities express not only pleasant feelings but also unpleasant and unspeakable feelings and thoughts such as psychologically suppressed fear, anger, and jealousy through the medium of art, music, movement, and theater in a safe space of the education center, the students can get the opportunity to listen to their inner sound. Second, students learn naturally the ability to control their body. Third, in the field of education, students can actively help communication skills, that is, they will develop language and nonverbal communication methods in art activities. Considering the three effects of integrated art therapy and emotional coaching teaching method it can be helpful to maximize the effectiveness of education by applying integrated art therapy techniques to enable students to listen to their own inner sounds. Conclusion: The integrated art therapy based on emotional coaching showed that the Warm Up time to listen to the students actual mind is the most effective time. At this time, it was found that the effect of education differed greatly depending on how interested the instructor is in observing the students. The reason why I try this teaching method is that I can make students recognize the importance of self-existence value and this can be expressed as pride. This enhanced self-esteem of students is more brilliant when they go to the organization.
