The role of mindfulness in coaching
Jonathan Passmore & Oberdan Marianetti
In this article we explore the concept of mindfulness as a tool for helping both coaches and coachees. We argue that the coaching practice of the coach can be enhanced through using mindfulness as a preparation tool. We highlight research evidence on the impact of mindfulness in managing stress and contributing towards improved performance. We argue that coachees too can benefit when the coach shares these techniques with the coachee.
Keywords: Coaching psychology, Roger’s necessary and sufficient conditions, mindfulness, meditation, emotional detachment, performance at work, focus, managing stress, managing emotions and breathing.
