I think we all know how to talk about coaching presence, and we fully embrace its importance. But, being present? Well, on this we may rate ourselves in different sessions on a scale, ranging from “not so much” to the Holy Grail of “well, mostly, I think.” Sometimes, maybe after you look at yourself coaching in a recent Zoom recording, you may feel compelled to sign up for the very next 10-day Vipassanna Meditation Course. Ultimately, presence is usually a “work in progress” for most of us. In this session, we will play with our understanding of what presence is, how much we can reasonably expect of ourselves in a coaching session, what the somatic sense of presence is, what it looks like from the outside, and how we can embody it more of the time everywhere in our lives. And we will also navigate our way through what research tells us about coaching presence. Promise! We won’t meditate for the entire session.
