12:30 -   2:00 Program

Imagine being able to focus our attention as coaches in the here and now without worrying about what to say next during our session, without judging ourselves or our clients, or worrying if what we say will impress or discourage those we work with.  The ability to show up fully and with a particular quality of attention during our coaching sessions can prove to be transformational and freeing for the coach as well as the client.  As we develop our ability to focus awareness and attention in the present moment, we become less prone to function with auto-pilot reactions, experience fear that we are not enough, and continue presenting with old habits and judgments toward self and clients.  Rather, we are better able to listen fully, find ourselves excited and curious during sessions, and make choices to support the client through heightened awareness as opposed to getting caught up on conditions outside of our awareness.  Coaching mindfully provides opportunities for deep-diving with our clients and ourselves in a way that will enhance our ability to assist clients in reaching their goals, and to further develop our skills and capacity as professional coaches.


This one and a half hour live workshop will provide coaches with scientifically validated tips, tools, techniques and experiential opportunities to better understand how coaches can respond effectively within a partnership framework with their clients.   Coaches will learn how to apply both formal and informal mindfulness practice to their coaching business, shift perceptions that impede successful interpersonal relationships, and build a set of individual behaviors and skills that can empower authentic and meaningful growth for both client and coach. This workshop is based on the groundbreaking mindfulness research study Dr. Linger conducted with high-level executives within their dynamic organizations as well as the work of other mindfulness leaders who work in coaching and consultant capacities.
