Mindful Coaching Interviews are a series of interviews on the question: How is the field of Coaching changing in this ‘age of Mindfulness’? Meet the most inspiring coaches of today right here.
If we look at the field of coaching, you could argue that the worldview inherent in Mindfulness is beginning to have a significant impact on our ways of thinking and acting.
What I have set off to examine is; How is coaching changing with the current Mindfulness Boom?
By asking this question, I intend to define Mindful Coaching. I look to the field of Coaching, to point out practices that reflect essential elements of a Mindfulness paradigm. I examine the ways in which coaches put Mindfulness to work in their coaching practice – and thereby I aim to offer a definition derived from actual practice. Simply put I aim to make a move from ‘this is how Mindful Coaching is being done’ to ‘this is what Mindful Coaching is’.
In this context the label ‘Mindful Coaching’ refers to different approaches to coaching that reflect significant elements of the Mindfulness paradigm.
This is the frame of this series of conversations. Every one of the interviews is done out of curiosity and an urge to explore deeper into this field of Mindful Coaching, that is somehow defined, and at the same time a work in progress, that I keep expanding and deepening. I hope you will enjoy the interviews and feel inspired as much as I did, when I was doing them.
