We are a flourishing global community of Presence-Based Coaches, coaches along the path, and other leaders and coaches who find value in Presence-Based work.

Community, of course, is a living organic process. We have invitations at three levels of interest and commitment; all are intended to foster collaboration, fun, exploration, support, rigorous on-going learning, and a sense of community. Some offer ICF CCE’s (Continuing Coach Education.)

Requests and offers are the currency of community. Ask for what you need. Practice leadership in a virtual context. Make offers. You are welcome here. Play. Invite others to play.
