In this fast-paced, high-level session, we will look at:

  1. Our judgements and opinions, biases and blind spots as coach … AND
  2. Exploring what Coaching Presence is – and what it is not.
  • First, we will look at Coaching Bias – a hot topic in coaching, coach training, and organisations!
    o We will do some of the work from this year’s Coach Training Summit on ‘Calling In Power and Culture’, held in Toronto
    o We will take on some exercises to explore our own self-definition, and discover how others might be relating to us
    o We will consider how we are impacting our clients based on our own biases and blind spots in coaching, and in life.
  • Second, we will do some exercises to learn more about Coaching Presence.
  • We will also discover how to shift, expand or ‘rein in’ our own Coaching Presence based on the work we do on bias and culture.
  • Throughout, we will practice, give, and get feedback, and get an opportunity to become more authentic, and all the while getting
    rid of some of our ‘shoulds’.
