Maria Iliffe-Wood

Coaching Presence is a book for anyone who uses coaching or a coaching style in their work.  The relationship between the coach and the client is the biggest contributing factor to the success of the coaching.   The biggest factor in developing this relationship is the presence of the coach.  This book offers a way of thinking about your coaching presence.  It helps you to identify factors that may be impacting on your presence and a way of consciously thinking about this in your coaching relationships.

What do our clients say about us?

 

Although running your own business is very rewarding, it isn’t easy. There never seems to be time to stop and just think about things. When Maria from Meridian Iliffe started coaching me it felt like all that changed. She helped me to focus my thoughts, not only in terms of my business but in life in general. I suppose you could say she helped me face my fears. Although she brought a clear structure to our meetings she was also very calm and relaxed in her approach, which I really liked. I never felt under any pressure. I think it was partly her style of coaching that enabled me to really step outside of my comfort zone probably for the first time. The difference it has made has been quite astonishing; I feel as though my whole outlook has changed and I now have a much clearer picture of where I am in my business, and where I'm heading. I would not hesitate to recommend Maria’s services.
