Mindfulness is the capacity to attend to your experiences while also paying attention to your attention. It requires a shift in your awareness to a higher level: seeing yourself from the whole.
The coaches’ capacity to simultaneously pay attention to the client’s narration and the internal listening process of hearing, understanding, remembering, interpreting, evaluating, and responding will decide the quality and effectiveness of the coaching intervention.
In transformative coaching, we support the coachee to open the mind to heighten awareness and deepen the learning for the coachee to choose meaningful forward action.
In creating such a transformative space, a coach needs to develop the capacity to listen to the whole of the coachee's narrated experience.
