The mindful coach´s manifesto

I will seek where appropriate to……..

  • Practice mindfulness (including meditation) regularly (preferably daily)
  • Take a systemic approach to coaching, ´being mindful´ of the wider systems in which my clients and I operate
  • Approach coaching (and life in general) with non-judgement; open-ness; curiosity, and compassion
  • Prepare mindfully for each coaching session
  • Share mindfulness practices within coaching sessions and as ‘homework’ where useful and appropriate for the client
  • Attend (not solely) to the present in all coaching interactions (thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, happenings- both on my part and on the part of my client)
  • Not to be overly-attached to outcome, for myself or clients
