In his book Presence Based Coaching, Doug Silsbee says, “Coaching begins with our inside work; it is through this development of the capacity for presence in ourselves that we evoke the experience of presence in others.”
It is essential that each of us as coach continue to look within and be able to identify our internal and external barriers to being present with our clients. Without this work, we can fall victim to our own unconscious biases and behaviors while working with clients.
Understanding and building on the principles of self-generative coaching allows us the opportunity to take a look at the habits, attachments, aversions and stories we bring to our coaching and practice ways to make sure we are not falling into our own default mode.
