    Integrative Tools for Leaders and Coaches
    Deeply human. Organizing towards what matters most.

    The world is asking for our best. We collectively face extraordinary challenges.
    Leaders, and their coaches, need integrative tools and approaches to help us become what the world is asking us to be.
    Presence-Based Coaching draws from the fields of mindfulness, somatics, developmental psychology, complexity theory, leadership, and interpersonal neurobiology to offer an emergent synthesis of the most potent approaches to developing leaders on the planet.

    The Presence-Based Coaching program is a powerful and generative learning experience.  The integration of Doug Silsbee’s unique and expansive concepts and models, his powerful personal presence, and his ability to convey sophisticated ideas in a manner that makes them readily understood and easily integrated combine to make the program profound and impactful.

    Success in business is predicated on eliciting the best from people.  The Mindful Coach clearly articulates the essentials of how to do this.  As someone who believes deeply in the potential of all people, I found Silsbee’s approach both practical and profound.

    • Foundations

      Foundations

      Presence-Based Coaching draws from multiple streams.

      Mouseover the stones to the left to sample a few lineages integrated into this leading edge approach.

    • Resilience

      Resilience

      Presence leads to resilience: the capacity to be creative and resourceful and to take optimal action, no matter what’s going on around us.

      “Reality does not take breaks.”

      – AH Almaas

    • Somatics

      Somatics

      Whole person learning and practices produce embodiment, a compelling leadership presence, and physiologically supported change.

      “We are what we have practiced. What we practice now is what we will become.”

      – Gautama Buddha

    • Mindfulness

      Mindfulness

      Rigorous attention on present-moment experience enables choice and awareness. Inhibiting automatic behaviors opens new possibilities.

      “My experience is what I agree to attend to. Only those items which I notice shape my mind.”

      – William James

    • Developmental Psychology

      Developmental Psychology

      As humans grow, the arc trends towards more flexible and complex thinking, holding multiple perspectives, and an ever larger circle of care and concern. Seeing this arc accelerates its unfolding.

      “The fewer perspectives you have, the more certain you can be that you’re right.”

      – Randy Chittum

    • Interpersonal Neurobiology

      Interpersonal Neurobiology

      Human connectedness takes place below the level of language, one nervous system to another. Knowledgeable self-regulation leads to authentic and trusting relationships.

      “You’ll never know who you are unless you shed who you pretend to be."

      – Vironika Tugaleva

    • Complexity

      Complexity

      A world that is increasingly complex requires new and sometimes counterintuitive leadership. Relying on what has worked in the past often makes matters worse.

      “In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.”

      – Eric Hoffer
