One of the hallmarks of maturity as a coach is awareness of how your values, beliefs, and other factors affect your coaching interventions. It takes skill to notice these influences which can manifest both physically and mentally during coaching, while simultaneously ensuring a client focused approach. Coaching Presence examines how self-awareness can be built across key aspects of coaching practice, introducing a model that will help you make a conscious and deliberate choice for every approach or intervention that you use with your client. It explores how, by paying close attention to the motivations behind every coaching choice, you can minimize the unconscious negative influences and bias to produce the best outcome for the client and their wider system. It will also help you recognize when conscious visibility expressed explicitly to the client may actually be the best coaching solution.

Professional wisdom has suggested that coaching presence is purely about the coach – how they show up in the room, and what they say and do to support clients to reach their goals. But what if it was about the relational dynamics between the coach and client at an unspoken level? In this book, Tünde Erdös demystifies the power of the non-verbal coaching relationship. Put simply, the body does not lie. Using research from 184 videoed coach-client pairs and exploring their spontaneous interactions at a non-verbal level, we deepen our understanding of how clients navigate uncertainties (including in the coaching room) and how coaches can truly partner with clients to facilitate their goal attainment beyond traditional coaching. This book also reveals that a coach’s full-body presence can sometimes hinder learning and prevent progress towards a goal. Tünde Erdös guides the reader through Integrative Presence, where you will learn how to: •Build awareness of your state of presence •Identify potential coaching blind spots •Recognise when your needs block presence •Practice integrative presence in coaching •Foster effective coaching partnerships An excellent example of how coaching practice has informed research and with a foreword from Erik De Haan, this book will help anyone looking to enhance their coaching effectiveness through closer partnering with clients. "This book includes many high-quality and universal components to help professional coaches to make valuable progress." Patrick Delamaire, co-developer of the Global Executive Coaching Program at HEC Paris "WBECS is delighted to have been able to help support Tunde in her research to complete this valuable work on the importance of presence in the coaching experience." Marva Sadler, CEO, WBECS Group "This insightful book will help coaches to reflect on and enhance their practice." Prof Stephen Palmer, Wales Academy for Professional Practice and Applied Research, University of Wales Trinity Saint David, UK Tünde Erdös is an executive coach, coaching scientist, author and lecturer at HEC Paris. Tünde is passionate about staying curious as we co-create the future of coaching through a balance of science and practical wisdom.

Presence-Based Coaching offers coaches a hands-on resource for developing the capacities and skills needed to be reliably present in all situations, and shows how to let go of habitual—and often ineffective—ways of responding. As author and leadership expert Doug Silsbee explains, once a coach has mastered the inner moves of directing their own attention, they can work to develop the same capability in their clients. The ability of a coach to facilitate lasting, sustainable development in leaders rests on the presence a coach offers to the coach-client relationship.

Lifestyles have changed dramatically over the past quarter century, and along with these changes come exciting opportunities for health, wellness, and fitness professionals, including new career paths in the professional domain of health and wellness coaching. Centered on an evidence-based process for guiding change, Lifestyle Wellness Coaching, Second Edition, offers a systematic approach to helping clients achieve enduring changes in their personal health and wellness behaviors through a supportive and forward-moving coaching relationship. Formerly titled Lifestyle Fitness Coaching, the second edition of Lifestyle Wellness Coaching has been thoroughly revised and updated to keep pace with the rapidly evolving field of lifestyle coaching. The text offers powerful methodologies for those who want to embrace lifestyle coaching as their primary profession as well as for those who intend to integrate a coaching approach into their work with clients. The text is complemented by discussions, case studies, reflective opportunities, and practical aids and engages readers through multiple approaches to learning: • Dynamic coaching dialogues bring abstract concepts to life. • Typical exchanges between coaches and clients are illustrated. • The International Coach Federation’s 11 core competencies are thoroughly examined to prepare readers for certification in the profession of coaching. • Sidebars provide practical guidance for enhanced understanding and prompt readers to personally experience the content. Lifestyle Wellness Coaching, Second Edition, uses realistic coaching conversations to address issues such as the timing and types of questions to ask, how to provide feedback effectively, and how to facilitate robust action planning. Readers are presented with a broad overview of the field and detailed analysis of core ingredients to promote effective coaching relationships. The text includes essential structures for coaching conversations and practical considerations to help readers adapt materials to their unique career interests. Lifestyle Wellness Coaching introduces readers to models that clearly identify clients’ progress through the stages of change. First, the text explores the popular transtheoretical model (TTM) of health-related behavior change and its delineation of six stages of clients’ readiness to change. Discussion of TTM includes strategies appropriate to clients in various stages of readiness to change. Lifestyle Wellness Coaching also presents the learning-through-change model (LCM), revealing the deep layers beneath each phase of client movement toward change. Following considerations of the stages and phases of change, readers are offered a critical map for coaching clients toward goal achievement. The authors’ unique flow model of coaching illustrates how professional coaches help clients navigate the sometimes turbulent events in attempting to change habitual patterns of behavior. Lifestyle Wellness Coaching, Second Edition, details how professionals engage in well-designed communication strategies to motivate, guide, inform, and support clients’ processes toward personal change with a holistic approach. The text frames the boundaries of care and advice appropriate to coaching relationships. Some of the issues explored include the centrality of a trusting relationship, creating goals that are aligned with coaching processes, unblocking clients’ energy and discovering resources for change, and generating forward movement through the skillful use of the International Coach Federation’s 11 core competencies. Whether you want to apply certain aspects of a coaching approach with your clients or move toward adding a professional coach certification to your résumé, Lifestyle Wellness Coaching, Second Edition, will serve you well. The text presents the necessary skills for professional development and offers an evidence-based methodology for supporting and advancing clients in change processes related to health, wellness, and fitness agendas.

Gestalt Psychotherapy and Coaching for Relationships provides psychotherapists and coaches with a thorough understanding of two-person dynamics and offers practical interventions for working with couples and with two-person teams within larger organizations. Part I of this text relates contemporary gestalt therapy theory and gestalt-based coaching to developments in phenomenology, hermeneutics, cognitive science, extended cognition, embodiment, and kinesthesiology. Through a variety of narratives, Part II builds upon these themes and examines issues that typically emerge during couples work, including infidelity, provocative language, asymmetric relationships, sex, the use of emotion, limits and boundaries, and spirituality. Also included are general strategies for assimilating coaching into psychotherapy and vice versa, as well as recommendations for further study.

The Complete Handbook of Coaching

This comprehensive guide to coaching explores a full variety of coaching theories, approaches and settings, and offers strategies for the reader to identify and develop a personal style of coaching. The book is divided into three parts: - Part One explores the theoretical traditions that underpin the foundation for coaching such as cognitive-behavioural, Gestalt and existential. - Part Two covers applied contexts, formats or types of coaching such as life, executive, peer, team and career coaching. - Part Three focuses on professional issues that impact the coach such as ethics, supervision, continuing professional development, standards and mental-health issues. Written by leading international authors, each chapter makes explicit links between theory and practice and generic questions will facilitate further reflection on the topic. There are also suggestions for reading, and short case studies. This is the first book to explore the differences between the theoretical perspectives of coaching and the links between these perspectives in relation to contexts, genres and media of coaching.
