READ: ICF Core Competency 5: Maintains Presence 

  • Season 1 Episode #4: All the Feels in Coaching + Storytelling
  • Makes coaching unique, key to the profession
  • More action-oriented -- all new core comps start with verbs: “Invites another human being to emerge”
  • Ability to notice what is going on with the client – when they have an “aha” or a realization
  • Big thing: allowing it to be okay to not know as a coach
    • Be curious
    • Not giving suggestions, holding space for for the client to discover a way forward
    • Poor presence: too fast to reaching a solution
    • Give enough space between and get comfortable with silence
    • Avoiding the co-gestions -- not telling what to do in the form of a question


  • What ways do you bring care into your coaching?
  • How do you invite your clients to emerge?
  • What ways do you show confidence in your questions?
  • How do you step into the “not knowing” space?
  • What ways do you flex your curiosity muscle? (avoid the checklist or framework)
  • What does silence look like in your coaching sessions?
