The coach-client relationship is found to be the biggest predictor of coaching effectiveness. Yet, we have little understanding of what makes this relationship successful. How much do you value your coaching relationship? How impactful are you in coaching such that clients can achieve goals quickly, effectively producing highest impact for them in their own systems?

In our coaching presence research we investigated the extent to which your presence drives how

  • You can be more impactful creating ripple effects in coaching and coaching presence
  • ‘The unspoken’ in the relationship contributes to your effectiveness
  • You ‘are’ as a coach when being at your best
  • You can be the best coach in the service of your clients.

Do you want to understand more of the unspoken in coaching, so that you can be more impactful? This research depicts the tango of coaching: the dance in the moment with clients as a vital way of creating focus around your responses towards greater effectiveness.
