Coaching Presence is a book for anyone who uses coaching or a coaching style in their work.  The relationship between the coach and the client is the biggest contributing factor to the success of the coaching.   The biggest factor in developing this relationship is the presence of the coach.  This book offers a way of thinking about your coaching presence.  It helps you to identify factors that may be impacting on your presence and a way of consciously thinking about this in your coaching relationships.

What do our clients say about us?


I have worked with Maria in my role as People Development Manager to deliver some coaching workshops in-house. Maria was able to deliver on the brief that was set out succinctly and could quickly adapt and change the content of the workshops to meet the needs of our colleagues.
