Summer Presence-Based®Coaching I - Now Virtual

Considering the COVID-19 global situation, we have decided to hold our Summer PBC I course virtually. This virtual course will happen on the same dates of June 1-3 for PBC I.  PBC II will remain an in-person experience at the Bend of Ivy Lodge on August 17-20. We are very excited about offering this virtually for the very first time. We have extended the early bird pricing through May 4, midnight EDT.

The Presence-Based® Coaching Course is a two part course consisting of PBC I and PBC II. While PBC I is self-contained and provides a strong foundation for coaching with presence, the whole course is essential to understanding the full integrated coaching model. Completion of PBC I is a pre-requisite for PBC II.

Course fees include tuition, materials, and post-retreat virtual follow-up classes. Required pre-reading text for each retreat is not included (The Mindful Coach for PBC I; Presence-Based Coaching for PBC II). For those exploring ICF credentials at the ACC level, the fastest and most cost effective route is this package:

More about this program

The Presence-Based® Coaching Course is a two-part program. This course provides a pragmatic toolkit for accelerating your own development and that of those you serve. We focus on building and extending our own presence, and on specific coaching moves and models that awaken and support long term efficacy in our clients.

Attending will build your foundation of Presence-Based coaching skills, with a particular orientation toward developing the whole person. The course is grounded in a model of human development, leading toward the capacity to be present and a learner in all of life.

General Description

Part I: Being a Development Partner can be taken as a stand-alone program appropriate for any level of coaching experience. The focus in PBC I is on the presence of the practitioner. This focus on presence, coupled with a powerful architecture for the coaching conversation, invites the conditions for development. This course consists of approximately two hours of pre-work, a three-day virtual retreat, and four follow-up virtual classes (two 1-hour, and two 90-minute video calls).

Taken with Part II: Evoking Self-Generation, the entire course offers an entry into a coaching approach with considerable depth, challenging even for experienced practitioners.

Our overall promises for the Presence-Based Coaching Course are that you will build observable new competency in coaching, greatly enhance your coaching presence, contextualize your coaching in a robust model of human development, and be more self-generative in your own life.
