Zen Coaching

Do you want to integrate your Zen practice or the insights of zen buddhism into your coaching style?   Are you feeling called to explore a zen coaching style?  Here are some principles that you can follow:

  1. Walk the talk:  To the extent your in the coaching relationship, allow what you value most about Zen meditation to be a shared context; that which you embody and that which your inviting your client into as well.
  2. Inquiry Learning; As you explore the Zen Coaching style within you, let the lessons arise, just like they would in your Zen Meditation, from the spaciousness of exploring the qualities of simply being.
  3. Assume Nothing; just as you would in a zen meditation, allow yourself to take no thoughts as absolute truth and support your client in the same by
  4. Welcome everything; Notice how in your zen meditation you are aiming to be present to whatever is so?   Welcome whatever is so in your client and invite them into the same.
  5. Notice where you awareness goes.  Rather then fixing to a coach/client relationship, explore what its like to BE with this client, and see what happens.
