In general, exercises are intended to be done once or twice to generate a particular insight, experience, or perspective. Practices, on the other hand, are intended to be done repetitively over time, with the intention of building a competency or capacity. Practices are central to the accelerated developmental learning that is the promise of Presence-Based Coaching.
