Intuitive Executive Coaching


This course provides a thorough examination of executive coaching, intuition and their interplay. Application of intuition within several executive coaching topics is offered as well as practical ways to increase intuition and apply intuitive skills within the executive coach setting.

Intuition is referred to in the ICF’s core competencies several times. Even so, it is difficult to find a working definition of intuition in relation to the field of professional coaching.

Intuition, approached from a scholarly perspective is often described as a process that uses cognition, patterns and the unconscious. From a spiritual perspective, intuition is often described in terms of one's third ear or sixth sense. This course incorporates both the scholarly and spiritual approach to the use of intuition in executive coaching.

I have been curious to learn more about intuition and this was the first time I have seen a class offered on it. It was reassuring to know that intuition is a valid and "scientific" feeling and decision-making approach, in collaboration with experience and knowledge. I feel more confident not suppressing my intuition and using it in my coaching work, along with fostering it with clients. It was freeing and energizing to learn about the foundation and validity of using intuition.
