Coaching to the Soul – deep listening to allow the authentic human being to speak, with Aboodi Shabi

The human soul longs, perhaps more than anything else to express itself and be heard or seen. It doesn't need to be fixed, or told what to do next, or given a solution. It simply longs to be witnessed. when we cannot express ourselves fully, our magic cannot show up.

Coaching that doesn’t include the capacity to deeply listen misses out on the essential core of the client’s being, and can only really be “skin-deep”.

In this interactive session, we’ll look at how to deepen our capacity to be present to our client, to listen beyond the goals, and to go beyond our techniques, so that we may better to serve our clients in discovering an authentic articulation of who they are. 

Aboodi is a highly experienced  and well known leadership development coach, facilitator and trainer. Born in London of Iraqi Jewish and Lebanese Christian parents, and with a degree in philosophy and politics, Aboodi has a sensitive antenna for different perspectives and a deep curiosity and understanding about people and what makes them tick. He continues to bring this “outsider’s” perspective to his work today, challenging the status quo to bring new perspectives and transformational thinking to his clients and students. 

Aboodi’s clients value his honesty and his warm yet challenging style, and his capacity to get to the heart of the matter quickly and sensitively, helping individuals and teams to achieve profound and sustainable change.

Aboodi has trained with Coach University, Coach Training Institute, New Ventures West, and Strozzi Institute, as well as Newfield Network, where he served as a programme coach and full course leader.
