The Power

of Presence

Develop Inner Mastery for Extraordinary Coaching

Connect to the heart of transformational coaching

There is a dimension of coaching that opens us to profound transformation.

Something often misunderstood, and rarely taught.

Maybe you’ve felt it during powerful coaching moments—where you drop into a deep connection with the moment. And while it may seem mysterious or like it’s arrived by grace, it’s actually something that can be learned.

The best coaches operate from a different inner place. The quality of their attention and their listening is so refined that we can feel it.

And change happens in the space around them.

So, how do masterful coaches enter this mysterious dimension of coaching and appear to create change by their very presence?

What are they doing inside that has such power to catalyze transformation?

We brought these questions to the most powerful coaches we know, and here’s what we learned…

Our nervous systems are actually designed to attune to one another. And to a greater field of awareness that we all share.

When we shift into this place of presence, everything changes.

Both you and your client become connected to your deeper knowing and greatest creativity.

You unlock the power in the tools and techniques you already know, weaving them together spontaneously. You find yourself saying things that surprise you, or shift your client’s experience in a single moment.

The space opens up. Things fall into place. And the path forward reveals itself.

This is the power of presence, and it’s far beyond what the word implies.

It’s not just being present. Or attentive. Or focused. It’s something that arises from an inner process. A deliberate way of listening. A conscious connection with our nervous system’s ability to attune.

While it’s not a “tool” or “technique”, it is something you can learn to access. There are pathways that can reliably take you there. And it’s that access that this program is designed to give you.

This training will enable you to…

  • Unlock the core of your client’s problems in a way that your rational mind could never have achieved
  • Create inner coherence so that your native creativity and intuition can come through you
  • Reliably enter into a state where the deepest transformational potentials of the conversation are opened up

This shift is available to you in every moment. In fact, you’re designed to access the power of presence.

This training will show you how.

And when you learn to coach from this space, it opens up unparalleled transformational potential.
