Create a Reliable Listening Practice

Most coaches have been taught to “Listen beyond the words.” This ignores the source of listening from deep within. What do coaches need to authentically connect with their client’s concerns? Consider these facets of Deep Listening:

  • What is listening for context? How do we cultivate intention and clear attention?
  • How does listening shape our worldviews for bias, “separation,” and inclusion?
  • How can we identify and accept impediments that undermine our listening?
  • How can we develop a reliable and sustainable practice?
  • How do we train others in deep listening?

I have a plan for Mastering Deep Listening

“Deep Listening offered me a deeper dive into many of the principles of Ontological Coaching. I have received continuous training in Ontological Coaching for over 15 years, and also have trained and mentored students for 10+ years and still found this course of great value. I now have new practices and ways (language and concepts) to support students and my clients. More than that, I have a plan for mastering Deep Listening.”
