Know thy body! Integrative presence: A needs exchange through somatic responsiveness in dialogue
We all tend to have a default setting – a golden shadow – about everything: money, love, work, and presence, which limits our potential to have healthy relationships. People disconnect from us. While we think we are present, most of the time we have too much or not enough of it. The result is our presence-less-ness as we miss to see what is relevant in our interactions any given moment.
In this workshop, we will explore two obstacles to presence in coaching as a growth intervention.
We will reflect
a) the consequences of both our presence-less-ness in our default setting, and
b) our presence-ness integrating the I, the Other, and the We in coaching.
Our approach is based on a recently conducted large-scale international coaching research that investigated 184 coach-client pairs in video-taped sessions to reveal that presence is expressed in how we respond somatically to each other. So, know thy body to be present any given moment.
