A hongi is a traditional Māori greeting in New Zealand. It is done by pressing one’s nose and forehead (at the same time) to another person at an encounter.
It is used at traditional meetings among Māori people and serves a similar purpose to a formal handshake in modern western culture.
Through the exchange of this physical greeting, one is no longer considered manuhiri (visitor) but rather tangata whenua, one of the people of the land.
And in the spirit of Coaching, the connection of trust is similarly created to establish a ‘Oneness’ of heart and intention — and with the ‘Openness’ of interaction to build deeper rapport (overtime) for greater accountability to move forward.
Coaching is only as powerful as the bond created between a Coach and a Client. Are you ready to enter into such a relationship that will change and impact your life forever?
