Presence-Based Coaching: Cultivating Self-Generative Leaders Through Mind, Body, and Heart

Front Cover
Wiley, Nov 3, 2008 - Business & Economics - 320 pages
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.
