Presence-Based® Coaching: Exploring the coaching competency 'Maintains Presence' from the New ICF Competency Model

Speaker: Beatrice “Bebe” W Hansen, PCC, MSSW
CCEU: 1.25 Core Competencies 


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 and ICF Houston for an enlivening and experiential virtual event and coaching demonstration on October 19, 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
