A little about our Presenters

Pam Noda, PCC and Tina Mertel, PCC



Pam Noda

Tina Mertel

Pam Noda and Tina Mertel are PCC-level coaches and are certified in Relational Presence (also known as Speaking Circles®) Training. Experience has taught them that being in Relational Presence with clients is the ground of coaching wisdom. From there emerges a coach’s sense of what to say when and which skills/tools to apply. From there emerges a client’s inner knowing and call to action. This combination is what yields inspired coaching from the coach and inspired results for the client.

This Virtual PD will cover

This online Professional Development will cover:

As coaches, our ability to be fully present and conscious with our clients is key to a successful relationship. Yet sometimes we can let the skills and tools we learned steal our focus away from being in the moment. And without a focus on our way of being with our client, our coaching relationship is less effective.

While it’s important to intentionally improve our capacity for presence, exactly how can we do that? 

This 90-minute, highly interactive webinar will equip you as a coach with: 

  • the Relational Presence methodology. 
  • a proven process to build your muscle of how to be with clients. 
  • the confidence to access a way of being that heightens trust and intimacy, enriches your coaching presence, deepens active listening, and fine tunes your direct communication with clients.
