Building Coaching Presence for Leaders
“Connection is the energy that is created between people when they feel seen, heard and valued;
when they can give and receive without judgment.”
~ Brené Brown
Today’s agile organizations need leaders to be more than strategic, visionary and bold – they need leaders who can create environments that foster collective wisdom, innovation, belonging and connection. In short, leaders who can bring out the best in others, collectively and individually, by becoming coaches for all colleagues.
While coaching includes skills such as listening, asking questions, providing and receiving feedback, the core capacity underlying these skills is the capacity for Coaching Presence – a way of being that enables the coach to facilitate positive change and transformation.
Leaders with Coaching Presence become co-creators of generative coaching conversations that empower and inspire others to see themselves and the world around them in clearer ways. They create cultures of trust and psychological safety where courage and vulnerability is possible, where real conversations that lead to agility, wholeness, and fresh thinking can take place.
