    Don't miss our December program  - Building Client Trust, presented by Dana Menlove.

    As coaches we are in a sacred contract with the client – one that hinges on trust. To drill down to the bedrock of what cultivates and sustains trust, we have to look closely at awareness – knowing what’s happening beneath the surface and being aware of the effects of our perceptions, feelings, and behaviors. When we commit to actively cultivating and maintaining awareness, we are more capable of building trust with clients by living in integrity, and this goes beyond ‘doing the right thing.’ It means being well-integrated with inner-to-outer congruency, at ease with vulnerability, and able to stay present and respond with a quality of mind most beneficial for our clients.

    Awareness is a requisite for integrity, and it requires a finely-tuned capacity for attention. Mindfulness trains attention – as it turns out, exactly the kind of attention that is called for in a trusting coach/client relationship: on-purpose, moment-by-moment, and kind, open, curious and nonjudgmental.

    Join Dana in an exploration of how to leverage awareness in building trust with your clients. Your takeaways include a framework for an optimal state of mind to generate connection and trust with your clients as well as a go-to practice for yourself that will nourish your own personal integrity and increase spontaneous satisfaction. And as a bonus – just in time for the holidays – a stress-relief tool that just might change your life.

    Dana Menlove is dedicated to cultivating communities of conscious, change-making leaders. As Director of Coaching for the Bay-Area coaching firm Mindful Life, Mindful Work, her focus is at the intersection of awareness and high performance. In her work with executives and leadership teams, she specializes in the clearer mind and inspiring vulnerability to generate connection and deepen awareness, compassion, and trust. She serves in sectors from high-tech and social enterprise to manufacturing and medicine, and is well-known for her week-long mindfulness retreats on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. In addition to formal university degrees and study in literature, psychology and biology, she studies mindfulness with Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD. Her recent projects include designing signature experience for 1440 Multiversity near Silicon Valley and teaching a mindfulness-based leadership course in the College of Innovation + Design at Boise State University. A devoted naturalist and fly-fisherman, Dana is most at home in the wild mountains and rivers of Idaho and Argentina.
