Coaching Presence (ICF Competency #4)
Imagine being with someone who is fully present… Giving you their full attention… With you and for you as you share.
That’s the heart of ICF Competency #4, Coaching Presence, and in today’s episode, Vicki Corrington, PCC will help us grow deeper into this important skill.
Tune in as we:
- Unpack the International Coach Federation’s (ICF) definition of coaching presence and teach practical applications for your practice
- Show you how to make the shift from providing insight and direction to encouraging risk-taking and perspective-shifting transformation
- Stress the importance of being fully present and engaged, yet invisible, so you don’t get in the way of your clients’ progress

Waking up one day feeling as though “there were nothing left of her”, life coaching, combined with praying the word, was the process God used to transform Vicki’s life and to restore her excitement about making a difference helping others live more fully themselves, fully alive. She currently does this through one-on- one or group coaching, training and retreats… all bathed in prayer. She is a Certified Myers-Briggs Practitioner offering temperament assessment coaching services to clients and partnering with other coaches to offer temperament assessments to theirs. This tool fits well with her purpose to live in a way that her actions line up with who she is and what’s important to her…and to help facilitate that process for others.
