Coaching in Context series

Coaching Presence and Shadow Practice

Our presence as coaches has tremendous potential for impact. In this webinar we will explore how presence is defined, what shapes presence, and what the research tells us about the impact of presence on coaching. According to the International Coach Federation, Coaching Presence is defined as the “ability to be fully conscious and create a spontaneous relationship with the client, employing a style that is open, flexible and confident”.

Together we will reflect on and share our own experience of what supports and thwarts presence as coaches as a way to integrate and build on this definition. I will introduce practices designed to support the development of presence including embodied awareness, generative listening and shadow or projection/introjection practices. We will practice with at least one of these.
