We are living through uniquely disruptive times. We have experienced monumental change and unforeseen obstacles to many of our plans and goals. As coaches, our role in the world to create clarity, conscious choice, and intention has never been more important or more necessary.
Amidst such disturbances, our clients often come to coaching triggered, stressed, and reactive. They can become merged with their distressing experience, unable to separate from it and access their Higher Self. When that happens, our coaching can practically bounce off our client’s reactions and defenses and can land on barren soil.
Yet, when we integrate techniques like mindfulness and attunements, when we connect with and follow our client’s energy, and when we access our own instinctive intuition regarding what’s wanting to emerge, we can support our clients in observing their experience, exploring a new perspective on their situation and gaining access to a wiser, more centered Self.
And from that place, they can begin to create conscious choices that heal and transform.
To bring this healing experience to our clients, we must first experience it for ourselves. That is what the Mindful Coach Certification program is about: owning and finding our own attunement with ourselves as an Instrument.
As a coach, when we experience ourselves as an instrument — an instrument of some larger purpose, an instrument of consciousness itself, a facilitator of “what is wanting to happen” — we are able to work in a different way and from a different place with our clients.
A “coach as instrument” is a channel, a conduit, a diviner of what is wanting to emerge from the field, for the client.
A coach who works as an instrument of consciousness can create the conditions for new thresholds that allow the client to shift perspectives and experience conscious choice that can lead to change.
This program is intended to support coaches in leaning into the instrument that they are.
