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.  

The author, Maria Iliffe-Wood is the Managing Director of Meridian Iliffe Ltd. She has been coaching for over 25 years and provides Executive and Leadership Team coaching. She supports coaches to develop their coaching practice and provides coach supervision on a one to one and group basis. 

She is a Co Coaching Forum Regional Lead for the Association for Coaching and she guest lectures on the Masters in Leadership Coaching programme and the MBA programme at the University of Derby.

What do our clients say about us?

 

I found the book Coaching Presence very interesting and useful; I am always interested in new ways of viewing the coaching intervention, and techniques for improving my practice, and I have found that the four modes of presence in Maria's model provide a different perspective when in a coaching or mentoring situation. I think this book would be useful to both newcomers and experienced coaches who are interested in looking at the coaching relationship from a different perspective, and seeing how/if the client could get more benefit from the session if the coach considered another type of presence. I am sure I will refer to this book often; a valuable addition to my collection.
