Self awareness and strong use of self are critical practitioner success variables are
often more powerful that a specific set of tools. A compelling presence is a
competitive advantage for coaches, consultants, and leaders. Presence is challenging
to define because of its uniqueness across individuals, but, it is a decisive factor in
attracting clients and inspiring others.
This highly experiential 3-day workshop is designed to address key aspects of your
presence and your intentional use of self in the service of effectiveness, creativity,
and satisfaction. Assessing and developing one’s own presence requires the context
of others. We learn about the impact of our presence only by learning what we evoke
or provoke in others. Thus the creation of a safe environment, with a rigorous demand
for courage and trust, is an essential component of the workshop.
The workshop uses the power of groups as a vehicle for exploring presence and use of
self across levels of system: individuals, dyads, the group itself, and the larger institutional
context of the group. Group configurations provide the practice opportunities that are
accompanied by varied and intense feedback regarding participants’ leadership styles
- Strengthen awareness of your distinctive presence
- Explore your impact and effectiveness as intervener at multiple levels of system
- Identify your access to both intimacy and strategic action
- Learn developmental practices to increase personal and professional mastery
