Mindfulness & Presence
for Coaches FastTrack

with Brett Hill – Founder, Mindful Coach Association

6 weeks to amplify and sustain your in-session presence

Few coaches are adequately trained in presence, a core coaching competence
…the magic behind really masterful coaching

– Reciprocoach.com (writing about this course)

Hello Mindful Colleague,

It’s no secret that people are struggling, confused, and disconnected from authentic purpose and meaning
now, more than ever. 

Chances are you’ve taken a good look inside and outside, and you feel called to do more to help.

Me too.

My calling happened when I was working at Microsoft going about my business as a speaker on technical stages on worldwide as well as trainer teaching Fortune 500 companies all of the world.  

One day, I got an “inner message” – you need to do more to help people with what you have!

It was powerful, relentless, and urgent.

But what did I have that could be helpful?

You see, I wound up in technology as result of my lifelong pursuit to deeply understand how things really work, and that includes our inner world as well as our outer world.

So along with internet protocols and web servers, I had studied meditation (which I also taught for many years), group-dynamics, and mindfulness based somatic psychotherapy with world-class mindfulness based, somatic therapists like Ron Kurtz, the creator of Hakomi method, Amina Knowlan who created Matrix Leadership and Jon Eisman, creator of Re-Creation of the Self. 

And, before I joined Microsoft, I earned a degree in Interpersonal Communication and had studied many spiritual teachings in pursuit of “how things really work.” inside and outside. 

So there I was, feeling the intensity of this “calling.” Helping people have faster, more secure internet services was simply not cutting it. The need was too great and what I had learned, to valuable to take a back seat any longer. 

That’s when I decided to become professional coach.

To my delight, I discovered that presence is one of the core competencies of International Coach Federation.

So I set out to get an ICF certification as a Mindfulness, Somatic, and Wellness certified coach and others.

But A Key Part Was Missing!
 

To my dismay, in my coach training, I found  there was precious little coach training on how to be mindful and present with others in session that compared to the quality I had experienced in other trainings. 

And what i did encounter, was seriously underdeveloped compared to the master classes I was fortunate enough to experience.

That was my ah-ha moment.

The calling became more clear – Teach coaches and other helping professionals including doctors, healers, group leaders, and executive coaches to be more mindful and present in session, because there is no better way to uplevel both the coach and client experience at the same time. 

But I’m not just relying on my own experience – this gap in training has been confirmed in conversation with hundreds of coaches in the Mindful Coach Association.

Plus Reciprocoach.com (which offers this course as a part of their portfolio) said “training programs that effectively teach coaches how to DO coaching presence are few and far between.”

This class bridges the “presence gap” in coach training.

Indeed, there are some excellent coach trainings that do involve presence work, but thousands of coaches don’t have the benefit of those trainings which are often long, expensive certification paths. 

And it can be hard to high quality, effective coach training that is fresh, affordable and doesn’t require a big time commitment.

The course is built with recent principles and practices from neuroscience, relational mindfulness, and somatic-psychology because, well, I’m a technologist as well a mindful-somatic coach and coach trainer.  So keeping up with the tech is important.

For example, research shows brief, daily reminders to accompany learning improves engagement and satisfaction.  But how to do this? There is no ‘off the shelf’ solution to provide these services for a class like this, so I built one. You can now add Practice Prompts to you enrollment to provide short, daily practice suggestions via email or text. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. 

My mission is help you be the best you can be,
so you can better serve the people you are called to help. 

You’re reading this because you want to make a difference and likely are already in significant ways. 

Working on your in-session presence the most powerful way improve your work, regardless of your practice. 

This course takes you through a updated series of exercises informed from the great training I had the good fortune to learn and re-factored specifically for coaching – to help you amplify and sustain your in-session presence. 

The “how” to “be”. 

You’ll see more choices in the moment, with friends, colleagues and clients and often better choices – resulting in better outcomes for everyone.

You’ll be more confident and because of the powerful work you do, have a distinguished practice.

And you can do all this without formally teaching mindfulness to your clients or over reliance on meditation. 

Are you ready to uplevel your presence with clients and bring mindfulness directly into your sessions?

Say yes, because your work matters. and the world needs what you have now, more than ever.

You, your clients and those close to you will be glad you did.

Guaranteed. 

Stay Present,
