Principal, Presence-Based® Coaching
Exploring the Coaching Competency of Presence from the New ICF Competency Model 

Speaker: Bebe Hansen, MCC

What’s new?  What’s similar?  How do we “Maintain Presence” in a coaching conversation?  How does Presence-Based Coaching understand and work with Presence?  Join Beatrice (Bebe) W. Hansen, MSSW, PCC for an enlivening and experiential in person half day workshop on April 20, 2020 to explore this relevant topic.  

Presence-Based Coaching offers many perspectives, tools and practices to support your Being as a human, and your Doing as the coach.  How do you cultivate your own state of Presence?  What practices can support us working in the moment with our clients?  This includes our integrative coaching approach to working with our client’s wholeness, including the body, emotional and thinking centers.   

Presence-Based Coaching offers a unique blend of many streams of wisdom and knowledge, including Mindfulness, Somatics/Embodiment, Adult Development, Neuroscience, all underpinned by accessing Presence. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Discover what’s changed and what’s similar in the new ICF Competency Model for the competency of “Maintains Presence.” 
  • Learn how to operationalize this competency in your coaching conversations
  • Explore more deeply what Presence is, and how to cultivate your own presence as the practitioner in a coaching conversation
  • Take away new perspectives, tools, and practices to apply immediately and reliably with your coaching clients
