Summary of Webinar:

The ICF defines coaching presence as i.e. ‘ability to (…) to create a spontaneous relationship with the client, employing a style that is open, flexible and confident’: dancing in the moment.

How may we notice that client and coach are dancing in the moment? So, what?

In our interactive and practical session, we address these questions relating to a piece of research currently conducted on the nature of coaching presence. We take an innovative relationship-oriented view to ‘why clients do what they do’ in coaching from the perspective of interpersonal synchrony. We explore:

  • non-verbal interactions as they relate to clients’ emotion regulation, and how this mechanism relates to long-lasting goal attainment,
  • how our ‘presence with clients’ more than our ‘out-of-the-toolbox way of doing coaching’ is one of the core ingredients that will make a significant difference in how clients will feel capacitated to attain self-directed goals.

Key Outcomes:

  • Understand more of the unspoken in coaching sessions, so that you can be more impactful in your work
  • Learn to create spontaneous relationship with your clients as a core competence
  • Explore non-verbal interactions as a lynchpin of clients’ emotion regulation
  • Become aware of how clients might attain long-lasting goals beyond coaching
