The Executive Coaching Survey started collecting market data in 2005. Every year since, a new study has been conducted, with results made available publicly at no charge. The survey covers a wide range of topics, including the value and credibility of coaching, the results and benefits of coaching and efforts to calculate return on investment for coaching interventions.

With annual tracking, the Executive Coaching Survey can identify trends and common practices in coaching, including the now universal use of assessments in coaching engagements, and their relative popularity. The survey reveals developments in team coaching that shed new light on the way successful careers are built.

Neuroscience continues to build new information and evidence on a solid foundation. This is a rapidly growing body of knowledge that helps explain human behavior. Its relevance to executive coaching was revealed in the most recent Executive Coaching Survey, and will be shared as part of this presentation. Market data will be bolstered by clinical research from Prof. Justin Kennedy, CEO of Sherpa Africa.

Survey data is collected from executive coaches, business coaches and life coaches. Differences in their practices, including their adoption of published processes, go a long way toward explaining how an executive coach can build a successful practice.

Part 1: Coaching Definitions and Processes
Part 2: Benefits of Coaching
Part 3: Return On Investment
Part 4: The Perceived Value of Coaching

Giving Feedback: A Framework For Coaching Created From A Doctoral Research Study

Levels of Experience :

Lise Lewis - Master Practitioner Coach for executives, business leaders, managers, internal coaches and teams on a national and international basis
Thursday, June 12th
10:00 am (EDT) >Show in My time zone

Feedback is generally accepted as a key activity for improving performance in business and is integral to coach practice. The anticipation of engaging with feedback can elicit feelings of anxiety and fear. This session invites you to learn more about a framework for coaching created from a doctoral research study.

My research study covers the topic of creating the conditions for receptivity of feedback. I became interested in this during my career as an HR practitioner and also as a coach. Feedback is vital in helping people to make the changes they seek or that others want to see in them particularly for improved performance. The usual approaches to feedback appear to fall short of achieving the desired results and feedback doesn’t appear to be readily welcomed by the donor or the receiver.

The application of tools and techniques is acknowledged as usual practice in feedback. These focus on the process of providing feedback with little, if any, attention drawn to the emotional impact. The aim of this study is to explore whether learning from relational interactions can improve the activity of feedback.

This study gained knowledge from the field of coaching to inform both coach practice and performance management in business. 10 coaches and some of their clients agreed to participate and provide data from observations on and in practice. The analysis of this data produced a framework for coaching given the title of Elements Coaching Framework© (ECF©).

The ECF is offered as a relational approach for creating the conditions for receptivity of feedback. The anticipation is that engaging in feedback with this perspective will improve the current conjecture and promote a more positive engagement with feedback.

This session covers findings from my field study with coach practitioners exploring their own practice in relation to feedback. You will also be introduced to the framework created from this study. The framework is intended for use in coach practice and also has potential for managers to adopt for performance management discussions.

You will be invited to comment and ask questions about the adoption of the framework into coaching practice.

Specifically You Will Learn:

  • A framework for coaching intended to improve the coach-client relationship
  • Coaching activities identified from the themes within the framework
  • When to practice the themes in the coach-client relationship
  • The outcomes of evidence-based research

The key to success in life and business is to master Conversational Intelligence. It’s not about how smart you are, but how open you are to learn new, effective, and powerful conversational rituals that prime the brain for trust, partnership, and mutual success.
In a high-energy session, Judith E. Glaser presents a new framework for knowing just what conversations trigger the lower brain and what activates the higher-level intelligences—empathy, foresight, good judgment and trust. Through story-telling and practical exercises, Glaser translates the most groundbreaking research from the field of neuroscience into insightful, pragmatic and powerful tools and wisdom for elevating organizational success.

 

A seemingly simple act, such as talking with a colleague—a small momentary exchange of words in a hallway—has the ability to alter someone’s life permanently.  Conversational Intelligence contains the tools, practices, and frameworks to elevate conversations and positively impact your organization’s future success.

You will learn:
• The neuroscience of conversations—including what conversations open and close our brains—and why we need to know this
• Wisdom of the 5 Brains
• Activating the 3rd Eye
• What are the Three Levels of Conversations – and why you need to know them
• Trust and the Brain
• The five conversational blind spots that lower our Conversational Intelligence, and what to do about them
• The five powerful practices that elevate Conversational Intelligence and how to use them

Mindfulness has been in the news since I made the cover of Time magazine in January this year.
This way of 'being in the moment'  'being in the flow', being able to focus your attention powerfully in the moment is clearly important in coaching. It impacts our listening skills, our presence and our ability to be with the client and to understand and empathise with their experience. It is a fundamental coaching skill;  without it, we will miss important information that the client is trying to tell us.
This session will explain mindfulness, show how it is critical to listening skills and coaching presence and how to use it for yourself to become a more aware and perceptive coach. We will also deal with the benefits of mindfulness actions steps and tasks for the client, how they work and when to set them.

•    What is mindfulness - definitions, history and applications.
•    How to apply mindfulness to coaching.
•    Using mindfulness for better listening skills.
•    Achieving a powerful coaching presence.
•    How and when to set tasks involving mindfulness

He will show how we continually need to balance (and re-balance) creating, preserving, accepting and eliminating as we journey through life.

“The hardest thing to attend to is that which is closest to ourselves, that which is most constant and familiar. And this closest something is, ourselves, our own habits and ways of doing things.”- American philosopher, John Dewey The greatest tool the coach can cultivate is an understanding of one’s own interior. Self as Coach work deepens our ability to bring our most authentic, agile and capable self to the work of coaching and to view ‘self’ as the most important instrument in the work of coaching. The capacity of a coach to practice skillfully is limited and defined by one’s understanding and development of the inner workings of ‘self’, and the ability to take full advantage of the ‘use of self’.   When we are able to step back and observe our ‘self’ in action we open the door to facing into our own limitations, blind spots, rough edges and beliefs in order to strengthen and deepen our work as coach. Specifically you will learn and explore: •    The role of presence in your work •    The power of the empathic stance in your work •    The range of feelings required to support an empathic stance •    The role of boundaries in allowing one to manage and utilize boundaries •    The somatic awareness of how we hold ourselves affects our presence •    The ability to challenge the client, share observations  at the right time •    The power of deepening your ‘self as coach’ capacity in order to provide your clients with a high quality coaching experience that achieves the client’s goals

In 2001, she started helping other companies develop their systems for internal coaching. Through the years, 5 elements that are always present in an organization that is experiencing high ROI/ROE from their coaching initiatives. And it’s maybe not what you think. Yes, there is coaching for individuals and teams at all levels. That’s pretty much the conventional wisdom about internal coaching. However, to sustain a vibrant internal coaching initiative over time, there are some less obvious elements that need to be present.

 

In this session, Jane will cover evidence that flies in the face of conventional wisdom about internal coaching in five key areas:

  1. What it takes for coaching to permeate corporate culture
  2. The effect of corporate HR and business processes on coaching results
  3. Best internal coaches operate as entrepreneurs, not support staff
  4. One internal coaching approach may not fit the whole company
  5. If you build it (an internal coaching initiative), they may not come.

The sound of an orchestra is beautiful; majestic, when everyone is precisely following the lead of the conductor and the written score.  Jazz on the other hand, reflects the ebb and flow of a ‘conversation’ between musicians and their instruments.  We know that great coaching is about engaging in a meaningful dialog rather than a structured, scripted interaction.  Like Jazz musicians, coaches must pay as much attention to the tone and timing in their work with clients as they do the spoken words.  Similar to Jazz musicians coming together as an ensemble with a common melody, how we show up with our clients creates the space for something unique and real to emerge.  Andy Kindler of Xcellero Leadership joins Doug on this session. We as coaches can learn a great deal from these musicians about bringing melody, rhythm and harmony into our coaching.

 

  • Transfer learning of great Jazz artists into becoming a innovative Jazz Coach
  • Implement the "5 types of Jazz-Think" into your Coaching Conversations.
  • Integrate the jazz concepts into their work with their coaching clients.

Based on his Stanford lectures and New York Times bestselling book, Shirzad Chamine introduces his groundbreaking model of Positive Intelligence.
Focusing on the root-level patterns of the mind, Positive Intelligence (PQ) is defined as the percentage of time your mind is serving you as opposed to sabotaging you.  This maps directly to which region of your brain is most active and which "voices" are strongest at any time.  The negative voices are classified into 10 Saboteurs (Judge, Controller, Victim, Stickler, Avoider, Pleaser, Restless, Hyper-Vigilant, Hyper-Rational, and Hyper-Achiever).  Their relative strengths can be measured through a free online assessment.  The positive and helpful voice is similarly identified and measured.
Positive Intelligence coaching is about helping the client to weaken the Saboteur voice, strengthen its counterpart, and strengthen the specific regions of the brain that make these changes sustainable.
The Positive Intelligence research is based on a synthesis of the latest discoveries in Positive Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Behavioral Psychology, and Performance Science.  With improved Positive Intelligence, teams and professionals ranging from leaders to salespeople perform 30-35 percent better on average.  Importantly, they also report being far happier and less stressed.
The breakthrough tools and techniques of Positive Intelligence have been refined over years of coaching hundreds of CEOs and their executive teams.  They will give you an edge as a coach interested in producing concrete results with research-based tools proven to work even with tough executive clients.

Discover how to:

•      Identify and conquer your top mental Saboteurs and help your coaching clients to do the same
•      Measure the Positive Intelligence score (PQ) for yourself, others, or teams--see how close you come to the critical tipping point required for peak performance
•      Increase PQ dramatically in as little as 21 days
•      Develop new brain “muscles,” and access 5 untapped powers with energizing mental “power games”
•      Apply PQ tools and techniques to increase both performance and fulfillment.  Applications include team building, mastering workload, working with “difficult” people, improving work/life balance, reducing stress, and selling and persuading

What if leadership was more than a function of position, title or the result of certain exclusive talents and abilities?  What if leadership was a way of responding to all situations and was available to everyone?

If we take a look at what’s happening in the world today, it’s clear that our current leadership structures are not working very well.  We must expand beyond our current models of top down, one-dimensional leadership to those that are more fluid and inclusive.

To accomplish this, we need to re-define what we think of as “leadership”, moving from a one-dimensional to a multi-dimensional view of leadership so that multiple expressions of leadership are valued and can be fully utilized.

When we hold leadership in this larger context, leadership becomes a choice available to all, rather than a birthright or designation for a select few and begins with one’s willingness to be responsible for one’s life and for what is happening in the world around them.

In this session, Karen will introduce CTI’s innovative Co-Active Dimensional Leadership Model and provide tools to apply the model to situations in professional and personal lives.

Specifically you will learn:

• A new definition of leadership
• How coaching is a core competency of leadership development
• The five key components of Dimensional Leadership
• How to apply Dimensional Leadership in any situation

Great Leadership Creates Great Workplaces

Tuesday, June 24th
01:00 pm (EDT) >Show in My time zone

The key to making extraordinary things happen in organizations is great leadership. It contributes more to positive outcomes than any other single factor. Great products, great strategy, great people are absolutely critical, but with poor leadership they produce only a third to a half of their potential. It takes great leadership to create great workplaces that create great results. Or, as the late management guru Peter Drucker put it: “Only three things happen naturally in organizations: friction, confusion, and underperformance. Everything else requires leadership.” So, if you want better results in your marketplace, you have to ensure that you are fostering great leadership within your organization.
In this webinar, leadership author and researcher Jim Kouzes will present evidence that leadership makes a significant and meaningful difference in people’s engagement at work and in the performance of their organizations. The evidence is absolutely clear. In analyzing responses from nearly two million people around the world Jim, and coauthor Barry Posner, have found that those leaders who more frequently exhibit exemplary behaviors have employees who are more committed, proud, motivated, loyal, and productive than those whose leaders exhibit these practices less frequently. Overall engagement scores are 25 to 50 percent higher among the groups with leaders who exhibit exemplary leadership. Their workplaces also have better bottom lines than those led by leaders who engage less frequently in these practices.
Jim will explore what that difference looks like through the lens of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® — the sets of behaviors that he and coauthor Barry Posner have found, in their three decades of rigorous research, lead to extraordinary results.  He’ll also offer concrete advice on what you can do to put each of the practices to use immediately to improve engagement and performance.

As a result of participating in this webinar you will learn:

  • The most important driver of workplace engagement.
  • The role that age, gender, education, function, and other demographic variables play in workplace engagement.
  • The Five Practices that matter most in producing positive work attitudes.
  • The relationship between personal values and commitment to the organization.
  • The factor that most distinguishes leaders from individual contributors, and how it’s directly related to engaging people over the long term.
  • The condition that is most likely to produce personal-best leadership and how you can create it.
  • The factor that rules innovation, brand image, acceptance of leaders’ influence, commitment— just about everything else important in organizations—and what leaders can do about it.
  • How positive you need to be as a leader for people to feel fully engaged.
  • The word that’s required to get things moving in a positive direction.

The secret to success in life—well, maybe that's a stretch, but you’ll hear at least one perspective on that question.

It has become recognized practice that coaches at every stage in their coaching journey continually seek development, both personally in terms of deepening their coaching presence and awareness, and professionally in terms of competencies, ethics and standards. One of the growing trends internationally for undertaking such development is engaging in the practice of ‘coaching supervision' similar in concept to the supervision which supports many behavioral science professions.
Many parts of the world where coaching is well established already consider coaching supervision not only necessary for the coach and the client, but also necessary for maintaining the integrity of the profession. There are even countries where regular engagement in coaching supervision is part of the hiring criteria for an external coach being considered by organizations (e.g., Are you under supervision and may we check with your supervisor to verify that?).
In this session Dr. Goldvarg, MCC, ICF Chair of the Global Board will share ICF's position regarding Coaching Supervision, present an operational definition, discuss major considerations, including the difference between mentor coaching and coaching supervision, the importance of specialized training, suggested qualifications for those serving as coaching supervisors, guidelines for selection of a coaching supervisor and recommended practices for engaging in supervision.

Recent Neuroscience findings have uncovered that we have complex, adaptive and functional neural networks - or ‘brains’- in our heart and gut. Called the cardiac and enteric nervous systems respectively, these adaptive neural networks display amazing levels of memory and intuitive ‘intelligence’ and there’s a growing array of evidence that these brains are deeply involved in the control and processing of numerous functions and core behavioral competencies. By combining these Neuroscience findings with behavioral modeling research, a number of key insights have emerged that have profound implications for training, coaching and adaptive leadership. In this informative and fascinating session, you'll learn how to coach the multiple brains of head, heart and gut and evoke transformational change via neural plasticity in both your clients' neural networks and their life.
●    Learn how you have complex and adaptive neural networks or ‘brains’ in your heart and gut and how to coach them for success.
●    Directed by leading edge neuroscience, and based on 3 years of NLP behavioral modeling research, this new Coaching modality brings deep insights into how your clients' multiple brains produce internal conflict and what you can do about it as a coach
●    Neurogenesis—Your gut and heart brains are able to learn and grow new neural pathways and you can actively educate them for greater intuition and better decisions.

Raise Your Professional Game in Your Executive Coaching Practice

Wednesday, June 25th
10:00 am (EDT) >Show in My time zone

It is of strong concern for all key players to the Executive Coaching industry to both celebrate the creativity and diversity of practice in Executive Coaching as well as appreciating the need to establish strong foundations for good professional practice that makes sense.
This session will introduce you to a framework that can help you raise your professional game in how you practice Executive Coaching.
In applying this framework to your business, you will be consistently delivering with ultimate confidence a trustworthy and professional service that is right for the client yet embracing uniqueness of your coaching style and ongoing investments in personal development.

There are SEVEN KEY parts to this framework – the SEVEN PILLARS:

1        PRACTICE - Having an Established Practice - expressed in terms of the OUTPUTS, and language of the end users

 

2        INQUIRY - A track record of your own Learning and Inquiry – how you have built your own awareness of the wider knowledge and understanding typically used to appreciate what is involved in our coaching

 

3        LEARNING - Evidence of your learning about the ways organisations and Businesses operate – so that you appreciate the learning opportunities and challenges typically faced by others in these contexts

 

4        LEARNING - Evidence of your learning about the way that People operate – so that you appreciate the opportunities and challenges involved in being human

 

5        ARTICULATION - A desire to express and articulate the understanding that informs the patterns in how you work at your best. This is about HOW you do what you do.

 

6        REGULATION - Evidence of the way you maintain checks and balances - to keep what you do on track. – appreciation of the established methods such as a code of ethics; supervision, and reporting your continued personal professional development, for example

 

7        SOCIETY - Respect for the bigger professional COMMUNITY of which you are part – through continuing engagement with it in whatever way works for you, and our community

 

One substantial learning community within the Executive Coaching arena is already using this framework - APECS ( The Association for Executive Coaching and Supervision ) . This community bases its approach to Executive Coaching on the ways that other established professional communities (ie accountancy) have built the trust that is needed when you say – I’m a professional – I know what I am doing so you can trust me. We have to establish a basis for this trust – where we do what is right for the client, as well as ourselves.

This framework already works for a large number of people with established practices in Executive Coaching, so the question that you may be pondering is:

HOW will this framework work for ME? ….

UNIQUE TO YOU - You consider how to express your own story by using this framework, so that you can build understanding of your own diversity of practice and what commonalities exists and fits to the professional delivery standards within the industry

LEARNING EXCHANGE – you share your story with others in the learning community such as APECS whereby you have the opportunity to exchange learning through sharing of stories.

OUTCOME - The result would be the building of our collective confidence by:

  • understanding with clarity in what we do;
  • bringing this understanding to others on a wider scale;
  • building consistency of trust within the industry to establish that we do know what we are doing, and
  • contributing to the wider community and, thus, shaping the professionalism within industry

The quote, below outlines how it has worked for experienced and established practitioners:

  • “ ........... working with the APECS framework is part of my development objectives. Having coached for around 9 years it is high time for me to consolidate my learning in a way that enables me to talk about in a professional and meaningful way. The APECS process gives me the framework to consciously think about what I do, how I do it and why I do it and deepen my own understanding of this, whilst enabling me to communicate it in a professional and cohesive way. This is particularly important for me as the psychological terminology that surrounds coaching is very different to my business language. The APECS process is enabling me to link the two together, building my confidence in my practice as a coach. “

If you want to promote the healthy psychological growth of your clients, it is important to recognize that every individual you are working with is on evolutionary journey—a natural journey of psychological development that is common to every member of the human race.

Every goal your clients are trying to achieve, every challenge they are facing, and every choice they have to make will in in some way be related to the needs of the stage of psychological development they have reached or the needs of the stages of psychological development they have passed through that they have not yet mastered, where they still have unmet needs.

Understanding where your clients are on their journey will provide you with valuable insights into how you can help them meet their goals and fulfill their potential: not just helping them become more proficient at what they do, but helping them participate in their own evolution; the evolution of their organisations; the evolution of our global society and the evolution of our species.

In addition to recognizing that your clients are on an evolutionary journey, it is important to recognize that they are embedded in multiple cultural contexts: a family context, a community context, an organisational context, and a societal context. In order to facilitate the full emergence of your clients you must assess what stage of development these cultures are at.

If the cultures your clients are embedded in are less advanced in their development than your clients are, your clients may find it difficult to explore their full potential. If on the other hand, the cultures they are embedded in are more advanced in their development than your clients are, your clients will feel supported in exploring their development.

Based on the Book: Evolutionary Coaching: A Values-based Approach to Unleashing Human Potential by Richard Barrett

In this session you will learn:

•    How to identify the stage of psychological development your clients have reached and their primary motivations
•    How to identify the stages of psychological development your clients have passed through where they still have unmet needs—their secondary motivations
•    How to support your clients in mastering the needs of the stage of psychological development they have reached and the stages of psychological development they have passed through where they still have unmet needs
•    How to assess whether the organisational culture in which your clients are embedded support or hinder their evolutionary growth and development

Perhaps the most complex, lucrative, and rewarding coaching engagement is one in which you are asked by a leader to help him or her change the culture of the organization. A culture change program can take 18 months or more, and result in significant coaching work for you and your team. This program shows you a model and process for working with clients on culture change, and the different avenues that a culture change engagement can lead to for the coach.

  • Why a culture change engagement is among the most rewarding and lucrative.
  • What culture means.
  • The challenges and opportunities for the coach and client in changing the culture.
  • A robust, authentic process that starts with the leadership team and works its way to the rest of the organization – without the usual fads, fanfare, or superficial approaches.
  • Related coaching engagements that often arise during a culture change initiative.

In previous WBECS Sessions, master coaches from the International Association of Coaching, Dr. Susan R. Meyer, Krishna Kumar, Aileen Gibb and Natalie Tucker Miller introduced you to the nine IAC Coaching Masteries®. The Masteries stem from the early roots of the coaching profession, and take us to today’s current research to include the powerful mind/body/spirit connection, which forms the essential core of what professional coaching organizations define as coaching. As the benefits of integrating our whole selves through coaching are increasingly recognized by science, individuals and organizations, the importance of these Masteries become even more vital. In this interactive session you will hear a call to action on how you can begin living these masteries in your own work as a coach, and as a way to stay true to the essential power of coaching. Are you fully integrating these masteries into your life and leadership? Are you creating environments which inspire new possibilities and which expand your options and opportunities for success? Are you integrating the masteries into your own learning and growth?  In this discussion, as you pose questions to the IAC master coaches, you will be called to higher levels of effectiveness, awareness, impact and commitment to your coaching.

 

You can expect to:
♦    Identify (at least) 3 ways where the masteries might play an even stronger role from a broader perspective of your life and leadership
♦    Learn how to build the relationships, tools, systems and structures you need to advance and sustain your own progress with the Masteries
♦    Understand how to create environments that expand your ideas, options and opportunities for success through living the Masteries
♦    Clarify your own vision for success as a coach and commit to at least one next step action to get you there

As the coaching profession matures a new paradigm is calling coaches and leaders into inspired action. Individuals and organizations who have a natural gift for being on the leading edge and who walk between worlds are beginning to emerge. Catalysts who sense between the invisible and the visible, bridge builders who have the capacity to connect different paradigms, cultures and realities. Global human beings who are deeply intuitive and can sense into the gravitational pull of the future, defining new frontiers. And the paradox that comes with defying formal boundaries and provoking creativity at different levels of organization. Catalysts of risk and architects of new possibilities.

Are you an edgewalker? Do you recognize organizations and clients who embrace the edgewalking paradigm? What is currently impossible, that might become possible when seen through an edgewalking lens?

In today’s fast moving, interconnected global world we need to harness the power of the edgewalker to be and stay competitive. It takes courage to evoke the unseen, to reach beyond ourselves and open to a deeper dialogue with life. This is a courageous call for coaches and leaders who want to inspire new possibilities by exploring the ancient and revisioned paradigm of edgewalker.

  •     What it means to embrace the edgewalker paradigm in as a coach and business leader
  •     Explore the qualities of presence at different levels of system form the individual to the global
  •     How to inspire generative conversations to tap into collective intelligence
  •     Develop a more conscious approach to transformational change
  •     Inspire people and organizations to take risks, break new ground and build bridges between different worlds

Gestalt coaches work as “awareness agents.” More than any skillful implementation of a particular tool or technique, the key factors of any successful coaching engagement or change effort are the quality and relevance of the coach’s presence and the coach’s effective use of self as a coaching instrument. “Presence” can be understood by what gets evoked in clients which impacts the coach’s resonance with clients, impacts clients’ trust in the coach, and impacts the potential for change and the emergence of new possibilities. “Use of self” as a coaching instrument refers to the coach’s aware and choiceful acts taken to provoke clients’ action or self-identification and engagement with what is missing or needed. Gestalt coaches’ self-work is fundamental to their coaching work: Ongoing learning about the effect of one’s presence and how to best leverage one’s use of self is central to creating effective interventions and to using one’s relevant influence with clients to empower them. Gestalt coaches learn how to co-create a "safe enough,” transparent, and accountable environment that allows both coach and client to fearlessly explore new possibilities and new behavioral constructs.
This 90 minute session is designed to guide and give feedback to coaches about how to identify their “presence” and how to develop their “use of self,” key elements of coaching, leadership, and team and group facilitation. In this session, participants gain knowledge about how to identify and embrace their gifts of a unique "centered" presence, how to recognize through feedback when and where their presence or use of self did or did not make a difference, and how to harness the catalytic power of presence and use of self.
