Enhancing Coaching Presence and Active Listening with Mindfulness

"Mindfulness is consciously attending to the present moment, with wisdom and clarity, and initiating actions in alignment with our values."

Mindfulness is excellent for improving one's presence and creating mental and emotional balance. Coaches who practice mindfulness are more present and better able to listen actively with equanimity and an open heart. They can act with objectivity as nonjudgmental witnesses, exercising compassion and empathy while keeping focused attention on the progress of their client and the expression of their emotions.

Learning Objectives:

1. Enhance your coaching presence by practicing the relaxation response and training your attention and focus. 

2. Listen actively with an open heart to improve mental and emotional balance. 

3. Manage your emotions with equanimity and become more aware of the importance of creating a space and detaching from emotions. 

4. Practice responding proactively instead of reacting to a challenging situation.
