MAINTAINS PRESENCE describes the coach’s ability to be fully conscious and create a spontaneous relationship, employing a style that is open, flexible, and confident. When coaching relationships are co-created between client and coach, the purpose is to assist the coaching relationship into developing a new and mutual state of awareness that can only arise in the moment and out of joint conversation designed to not only connect to the client but also create the MAINTAINS PRESENCE that is necessary to be effective for both client and coach. In this course, participants will gain knowledge and skills focusing on the following learning objectives. Based upon ICF public documents, the D.I.A.M.O.N.D.S.
