Presence-Based Coaching offers coaches a hands-on resource for developing the capacities and skills needed to be reliably present in all situations, and shows how to let go of habitual—and often ineffective—ways of responding. As author and leadership expert Doug Silsbee explains, once a coach has mastered the inner moves of directing their own attention, they can work to develop the same capability in their clients. The ability of a coach to facilitate lasting, sustainable development in leaders rests on the presence a coach offers to the coach-client relationship.

Complexity Practices for Clarity, Resilience, and Results That Matter
Author: Doug Silsbee
Presence-Based Leadership is founded on this liberating premise: leaders' most crucial and complex challenges, rather than being obstacles, are actually doorways for becoming precisely the leader that current conditions require. Here is a rich field guide to the territory of complexity, and how leaders can navigate it with leading-edge approaches that generate clarity, resilience, and results that actually matter. Silsbee's new book is his most expansive. A master of integration, he seamlessly weaves fields as disparate as complexity, leadership and adult development theory, mindfulness, and interpersonal neurobiology into a deeply human exploration of how leaders can bring the fullness of their humanity to the most intractable challenges they face. His immensely pragmatic approach grounds new perspectives with intimate real-world examples. He offers specific, field-tested experiments and practices that invite the reader into discovery and application. This is a radically new and integrated approach to leadership, through which leaders can tap the creativity and resourcefulness of their internal complexity in order to meet a complex world. Through cultivating an embodied leadership presence, readers will become more dynamic shapers of the context in which they lead, and a creative force for what matters in a fractured and dynamic world. Presence-Based Leadership is the third and final volume in Doug Silsbee's groundbreaking and influential trilogy on coaching and leadership.
Praise for The Completely Revised HANDBOOK OF COACHING "Pam McLean has written a jewel of a book. Its straightforward, easy-to-read style lays out an elegantly simple, effective, and agile coaching methodology. This will become a well-used ('dog-eared,' in the days before e-books) guidebook for both the new and the seasoned coach." —MARY BETH O'NEILL, author, Executive Coaching with Backbone and Heart "A welcome and comprehensive update of the original Handbook, this theoretically grounded, yet highly practical book presents important integrative coaching models that deal with complex coaching issues in an easy-to-read way. This book will be of use to novices and experienced coaches alike." —ANTHONY M. GRANT Ph.D., coauthor, Evidence Based Coaching Handbook; faculty, University of Sydney "I love this book. Pam McLean offers the most comprehensive and clear explanation of use of self—why it is important and where we need to focus our attention—that I have ever read. In addition, she describes the robust Hudson coaching methodology clearly with lots of examples and always links theory to practice." —RICK MAURER, author, Beyond the Wall of Resistance; faculty, Gestalt Institute of Cleveland "The new Handbook of Coaching is intellectually satisfying and pragmatically rich, a tour-de-force grounded in a thorough exploration of adult development and coaching models. This major rework of Hudson's classic offers practitioners extensive guidance on coach methodology, the system dynamics of change, and the crucial use of self. Leadership coaches at any level will find this an invaluable resource." —DOUG SILSBEE, author, Presence-Based Coaching "With an emphasis on thoroughly understanding one's self as a coach and supporting one's clients to understand themselves, as well as their contexts, Pam's book is very resourceful both practically and conceptually. Her very current real-life examples are insightful and useful." —EDIE SEASHORE, M.A., author, Triple Impact Coaching
In this age of diverse, innovative, and knowledge-based workers, contemporary tools are needed to retain current talent and develop future leaders. Coaching has emerged as a primary instrument for this need. The challenge lies in how it is applied. Oftentimes traditional formalized coaching, used during performance reviews or as a means to give corrective feedback, is met with resistance by the very people it is intended to help. When released from its conventional use, however, coaching becomes an easily accessible tool to catalyze individual and organizational performance. The framework outlined in Stealth Coaching provides an informal, everyday process to use in daily conversations where real work occurs: between meetings, when people drop by the office, during lunch, or in the hallway. Being stealthful transforms coaching into an effective method to use routinely with staff, peers, and even superiors. Leaders cannot afford not to add this important tool to their toolbox. "The remarkable thing about Stealth Coaching is that it can be used by anyone, regardless of position in an organization, coaching up or down the administrative ladder. I wish I had had this book when I could have really used it." James Moeser Chancellor Emeritus The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill "Stealth Coaching takes a specialized skillset and makes it accessible. Kramer offers a pragmatic mindset and a simple toolkit founded on solid research that can lead to greater employee development, engagement, and commitment." Doug Silsbee Author, Presence-Based Coaching "These coaching methods have helped me better develop my staff by being an active listener and helping them cultivate their own solutions versus me trying to solve them myself." Chris Essid Member of the U.S. President's Senior Executive Service "Developing effective leaders requires the ability to coach and be coached. Stealth Coaching will be a valuable tool to empower our university to develop coaching skills for both faculty and staff." Janet Lowe Director, Employee Learning and Development University of Colorado

At the very heart of coaching is the art of listening, from which the natural byproduct of making others feel valued may be derived. One of the main functions of coaching is to help develop a narrative that will unlock an athlete's potential. This study gathered 31 undergraduate participants' responses to a coaching philosophy called Narrative Based Coaching (NBC) with the purpose of developing stronger perspectives of their own narratives within the participants. Results of the study suggest that using philosophical coaching approaches such as NBC to enhance students' narratives can be beneficial to overall wellbeing, thus supporting the presence of coaching centers on university campuses to boost student potential inside and outside the classroom.

How to Develop Your Leadership Presence, Knowhow and Skill
Author: James Scouller
Category: Business & Economics
In all the recent literature on leadership skills and techniques, one element has been consistently missing - the leader's psychology. For the first time, this book sets out a compact, but complete model for successful leadership based on a psychological understanding of the challenges and hidden inner blocks faced by all leaders. Drawing on many years experience first as a CEO himself, and more recently as an executive coach, the author has developed two new groundbreaking models. The first outlines the three levels of leadership. The other explains the human psyche and how to achieve self-mastery. Many people claim that leadership qualities are innate and not learned. This book explodes that myth and shows how all aspiring leaders can rise to the challenge.

Your ability to bring your best self to the role of leadership. Sheila Wherry specialises in coaching executives to build trust, cohesiveness and direction within themselves, their teams and across the organisations. By sharing her framework The Pinnacle of Presence she shows you how to be your own coach. The presence you bring to yourself and your teams can be the greatest gift to yourself and those you lead.
Poetry. From the afterword: "As poets, we found Cuba's contradictions, juxtapositions, mystery and sensuality provocative and inviting. Traveling family-to-family across the island, our psyches and our poetry were transformed, not by people wanting to leave Cuba for the material promises of life elsewhere, but by those whose priority was to stay. Ones who might—through resistance and creativity—be part of the next Revolution: artists, agriculturists, progressive thinkers, social and political reformers working to guarantee freedom of speech and fair and proper wages for all: street sweeper to surgeon. With things in flux, what remains is the island's vibrant beauty, the cloud-swept mountains, iridescent playas, fertile valleys, shimmering canefields, lively port cities and the faded pastels of colonial towns. Add the kaleidoscope of cultures, the Afro roots, a trade-wind vibe, the power of Santeria, an inescapable sizzle of music-and the pot begins to boil. Finally, spice the mix liberally with those classic Cuban hallmarks of genuine social living, ones that have largely disappeared in our homeland: immediate camaraderie, spontaneous generosity, a from-the- heart curiosity. We hope these poems give you a measure, a view into a people and a place that we have been lucky enough to be captivated by for many years, a place that can only make you feel more alive, more enlarged and more embraced than you've known.
Leadership presence doesn't come with a title or promotion - good leaders develop presence over time. Leadership presence is how you show up and contribute to meetings, and whether or not you can project confidence and poise under pressure - do you have already have a presence? Leadership presence is that elusive "we know it when we see it" quality. You may have a leadership title or tremendous leadership potential, but that alone does not give you presence. Being perceived as a leader when interacting with customers, peers or executives is the essence of leadership presence. Your leadership presence is evaluated by others based on how you show up and contribute in meetings, how well you project confidence and keep poise under pressure and whether you can engage others in ways that are authentic, empathetic and motivational. Stand Out walks you through achieving this presence so you get that next promotion and give your career that extra boost. Stand Out explains that the goal of leadership presence is to align other people's impression of you with your best authentic self. Body language expert and executive coach Carol Kinsey Goman teaches the five essential skills needed: composure, connection, confidence, credibility and charisma. She also explains how leadership presence is different for women, how nonverbal communication builds or destroys presence and why self-promotion is essential. This book shows aspiring and experienced leaders alike how to more positively influence the impression they make on others.
