Coaching Presence is considered the most important Core Competency by ICF and most Coach Training Organizations. A coach’s presence determines how we perceive the client, how we listen, and what we are curious about in a coaching session. It has a direct effect on how effectively a client is served. Participants will experience practices that can support a coaching in preparing for a coaching session as well as simple practices that a coach can use during the session to come back to a deep coaching presence.

This webinar will address the following core competencies:

  • Coaching presence
  • Active Listening
  • Powerful questioning
  • Direct communication
  • Creating awareness

This webinar will also address how deep coaching presence supports more effective use of the ICF PCC Markers.  Additionally, we will explore how the body/brain science supports the use of somatics in coaching. 

At the end of the presentation, participants will have an understanding of:

1.     Experience becoming present to their body, emotions, and thoughts and how this supports more effective coaching.

2.     Explore the meaning of presence and why Coaching Presence is considered the most important ICF Core Competency and what behaviors demonstrate a coach is present to a client.

3.     Experiment with Practices to support a deep coaching presence. We will do each of the practices and process them together as to how they might be used to support the coach and the client.
