Coaching Science Community of Practice - Additional Output: Dancing in the Moment – Interpersonal Synchrony’s Role in Coaching Presence

The ICF defines coaching presence as, “Being fully conscious and creating spontaneous relationships with clients, employing a style that is open, flexible and confident”. In other words, dancing in the moment. Therefore, how may we notice that client and coach are dancing in the moment? So, what? In this interactive and practical session, the Coaching Science Community of Practice met with Tünde Erdös and addressed these questions relating to a piece of research currently conducted on the nature of coaching presence. They took an innovative relationship-oriented view to ‘why clients do what they do’ in coaching from the perspective of interpersonal synchrony, and explored non-verbal interactions as they relate to clients’ emotion regulation and how this mechanism relates to long-lasting goal attainment. They also explored how our ‘presence with clients’ more than our ‘out-of-the-toolbox way of doing coaching’ is one of the core ingredients that will make a significant difference in how clients will feel capable of attaining self-directed goals.
