Coaching Presence

ICF Quebec Chapter

James Gavin, PhD., APBB, FACP, MCC

About Webinar #5

In this webinar we will play with our understanding of what presence is, how much we can reasonably expect of ourselves in a coaching session, what the internal feel of presence is like, what it looks like from the outside, and how we can embody it more of the time everywhere in our lives. We will also navigate our way through what research tells us about coaching presence.
