Develop your presence as a coach

Become more effective with your clients in a world of change 

Speaker: Hélène Aubry Denton, Executive Coach, ICF Master Certified Coach (MCC),  Founder of IDC Institut de Coaching, Geneva


In a world of constant and sudden change and multiplicity of variables the coaching profession holds a crucial role. Developing your competence of presence enables you to gain more confidence and authenticity as a coach. Presence becomes more than ever an important resource for coaches, trainers, managers, leaders and a key element to achieve meaningful results.

Webster dictionary defines “presence” as “a quality of poise and effectiveness that enables a performer to achieve a close relationship with his or her audience”. We know as a coach that the quality of presence is “the difference that makes the difference”.  It is associated with feelings of aliveness, connection, flow, creativity.

In this highly interactive workshop, we will take you through an exploration of what it is to be present at the level of our body, our cognitive mind, our feelings. We will discover and practice how to be connected to these energies and to keep a balance, allowing us to serve our clients better. You will walk away with practical tools that you can apply in your own practice with your clients.
