MODULE V: Presence as an essential coaching and leadership meta-competency
Presence is essential, not only for coaches, but as a developmental meta-competency that supports everything else clients are working towards. Presence is foundational for our capacity to recognize, negotiate with, and ultimately have choice in our habits and our inner state. In this module, you will work with presence both as a competency for coaches and as an outcome for clients. We will access presence through practices of mind, body, and heart, and work with presence as a coaching resource that underpins all real choice and sustainable behavior change. Working through your own signature coaching presence, you will learn to evoke, in your clients, this essential key to resilience, leadership effectiveness and accelerated development.
We will practice how to cultivate and hold a relational field of presence with clients; work intentionally with habit and resilient state; offer grounded, real-time assessments; integrate somatic and question-based coaching processes ; design integrative fieldwork, somatic practices and self-observations with client. Doug will co-teach this experiential retreat with Beatrice W. Hansen, certified Presence-Based Coach and Somatic Coach.
