Four-day residential retreat, and two follow-up calls. PBC I is a pre-requisite. 34 hours ICF coach Core Competency training hours.

The second part of the Presence-Based® Coaching Course emphasizes presence as an outcome of coaching for clients. We continue to strengthen our own ground as coaches, as we also couple our way of being with new coaching moves that evoke new awareness and capacity in the client. The result is greater resilience, efficacy, choice, aliveness, and leadership presence.
