A critical look at the most important tool of coaching

 

We use questions, they are the key part of coaching.
However we seldom think critically about what a question is, what it does and the exact language to use for it to have the greatest impact. How helpful  are instant lists of 'good' questions and 'bad' questions? What does a question have to do for it to be a good question? Do questions always need words? This session will shine some light on some important questions about questions

 

Specifically You Will Learn:

•    A critical look at  the question of questions.
•    How to evaluate if your coaching question is appropriate or risky.
•    Awareness of the assumptions behind your questions.

Tuesday, May 13th
01:00 pm (EDT) >Show in My time zone

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.

Karl Corbett, Managing Partner at Sherpa Coaching, is the publisher of the Executive Coaching Survey, and will present results from the ninth annual report. This presentation begins by tackling definitions for executive coaching, and the adoption of standard practices that can further define the industry.

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.

Evolutionary Coaching: An Introduction

Levels of Experience :
Tracks :
Richard Barrett - Author and Global Thought Leader on Leadership, Values, Culture and The Evolution of Human Consciousness
Wednesday, May 14th
01:00 pm (EDT) >Show in My time zone

At the core of the theory of human psychological development are two ideas: first, we grow and evolve in stages, and second, each stage has its own specific needs. What motivates us at any moment in time is the satisfaction of the needs of the stage of psychological development we have reached—our primary motivation, and the satisfaction of the needs of the stages of psychological development we have passed through where we still have unmet needs—our secondary motivations.

 

For whatever reason, and for whatever period of time the unmet needs from the earlier stages of our development predominate over our primary needs, we become arrested in our development: While our conscious awareness is taken up with satisfying our secondary motivations, we cannot focus on our primary motivation.

 

The job of the evolutionary coach is to help their clients prevent this from happening; and if it does, to support their clients in refocusing on their primary motivation by teaching them how to overcome or master their unmet needs and help them build new neural pathways.

 

When we are able to satisfy our needs we experience a sense of internal stability and external equilibrium. We feel aligned and comfortable in ourselves and we feel aligned and comfortable with those around us and our environment. Only then can we attain our full potential. When we are unable to satisfy our primary and secondary motivations we experience either internal instability or external disequilibrium.

 

Whatever needs we have that help us remain aligned and comfortable in ourselves and with those around us is what we value. Thus our values are always a reflection of our needs and a reflection of the stage of development we have reached.

 

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

 

In this session you will learn:

•    What evolutionary coaching is
•    Why it is important
•    How to integrate evolutionary coaching into your practice

Leaders live in a world of impermanence, uncertainty and complexity. How do we support leaders to build a body, heart and mind that can be resilient, creative, collaborative, and open? This takes an Integral approach: one addressing people in their wholeness.

Leaders live in a world of impermanence, uncertainty and complexity – we all do. However, from reading most management books or from studying the agenda of most “world-class” management trainings, one would come away thinking that there is a best way to do something. These sources propose lessons learned that can be duplicated, even though time, place, context and personnel are different. It’s as if these management theorists take themselves to be in a scientific laboratory where all background conditions can be held stable. No such human organization, corporation, community or family exists.
Instead of preparing leaders to work in a laboratory, how do we support them to build a body, heart and mind that can be resilient, creative, collaborative, open—not holding onto anything and yet confident in their ability to respond? This takes an Integral approach: one addressing people in their wholeness.
In this conversation with the founder of Integral Coaching, we will explore ways to develop these qualities in the leaders we work with as well as in our own self-leadership.
You will come away with:
- An understanding of the value of Integral Leadership in organizations and communities
- Methods for assessing clients in a way that includes all aspects of their lives
- Ways to coach leaders and to self-lead that accounts for our wholeness
- Ways to skillfully respond to uncertainty and complexity

While the context of leadership is changing constantly, the content of leadership shows amazing durability. As we confront current challenges, it's critically important to keep in mind that there are principles and practices that have been true for many years and will remain true long after the present crisis has passed.

 

 

In his webinar—a prelude to his Full Summit session—Jim Kouzes will discuss four enduring enduring truths and how they apply to the work of everyday leaders. Jim and his coauthor, Barry Posner, have a unique perspective on what is reality and what is myth in leadership studies—they’ve been researching the practices of exemplary leaders for over thirty years—and they have sorted fact from fiction.

 

 

You are invited to engage with him in an exploration of some of the most significant lessons they have learned from their years of research.

 

 

As a result of participating in this keynote, you will learn:

  • Who the most important leader role models are and what this means for the practice of leadership
  • The one attribute that is the foundation of all leadership —something that has remained the same for that last 30 years and is not likely to change for the next 30 years.
  • The one quality that differentiates leaders from other credible people.
  • What the best leaders share that enables them to become the best they  can be .

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.

 

Specifically You Will Learn:

●    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.
●    Learn how to balance your autonomic nervous system through the mBIT (multiple Brain Integration Techniques) Balanced Breathing method to quickly relieve stress.
●    There is a way to use your neural networks in their ‘highest expression’ and the implications of this are profound!

Marshall Goldsmith - The World’s Number One Leadership Thinker

Almost all of us can provide a wonderful description of the person we want to become.  We can paint a picture of the kind, healthy, productive high-achieving individual we will be in the future.  What happens?  Millions of people – even in affluent countries - are disengaged from their work, depressed, over-weight, out-of-shape and have almost no savings. Why? No one plans to become unsuccessful.  Whey don’t we create the person that we want to be – even when we have intelligence, education and skills?  Why do we fail on almost all of our ‘New Year’s Resolutions’?

 

Dr. Marshall Goldsmith is the world authority in helping successful leaders achieve positive, lasting change in behavior.  He only works with motivated, brilliant, dedicated leaders who sincerely want to change.  Even his clients will attest to the fact that positive, lasting change can be very challenging.  In this fast-paced, entertaining pre-summit, Marshall will illustrate the classic delusions that make behavioral change so difficult.  He will finish by providing proven tools that make change last.  He will share why everything that when teaches is very easy to understand and very hard to do.

 

Goals of the Pre-Summit:

 

• Understand the classic delusions that prevent us from becoming the person that we want to become.
• Help coaches bridge the gap between the ‘planner’ and ‘doer’ elements of their clients.
• Show why and how ongoing structure and measurement can lead to positive, lasting change.

It’s interesting that when we understand how something works, we often engage more completely and easily. This is why neuroscience can be an added boost to your coaching effectiveness. By going in through the door of the client’s more analytical understanding, you can often gain access to the deeper awareness that allows real lasting growth, change, and fulfillment. In this pre-conference session, we’ll look at the big picture around how coaching helps the brain engage. You’ll gain insights into how to “sell” your coaching services and techniques no matter how skeptical the audience, as well as how to help clients go deeper into their non-productive patterns for the sake of greater effectiveness. You’ll understand better how to normalize human patterns of stress and reactivity, thus allowing your clients to more easily

Award Winning Internal Coaching at IBM: 16 Years & Counting …….

Jane Creswell - Pioneer in the Field of Internal Coaching as Founder of IBM Coaches Network
Tuesday, May 27th

Think internal coaching is a new thing? It’s not – the pioneers of internal coaching have been at this for decades. Think internal coaching only makes a difference for individuals? Wrong – it’s for companies, too. In 1998, IBM was one of the first companies to invest in internal coaching and Jane Creswell, MCC, was the catalyst. Since then, one division of IBM won the ICF International Prism Award twice by proving measurable ROI/ROE success in their internal coaching initiative. During that same period of time, many other companies have had internal coaching initiatives come and go, so why do some internal coaching initiatives last and others fade away?

 

Join Jane Creswell to learn what successful companies do differently to harness the power of coaching for the long haul. Jane will share lessons learned, internal coaching approaches that have come and gone in IBM, and those critical elements that have sustained internal coaching at IBM throughout the year.

 

Specifically, you will learn:

  • The business case used to start the coaching initiative in 1998 at IBM is still valid today.
  • Keep a balance between structured initiatives vs. grass-roots efforts.
  • Pilot the initiative. Start small; try multiple pilots. Pilots gain partnership of participants to make them successful.
  • Measure the results of the pilot to gain usable ROI data that is relevant for your organization and can be used to increase the investment in coaching.
  • Frameworks. Coaching within an organization needs some type of framework to be successful.
  • Identify HR and business processes that may inhibit ROI from coaching. And make the needed modifications to eliminate those barriers.
  • How to Communicate what’s working and don’t be afraid to document what didn’t work and make changes.
  • Why a coach network is key.

Raise Your Professional Game in Your Executive Coaching Practice

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, for example, 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 on going investments in personal development.

In so doing, you will further gain:

  • The confidence you have already established a track record of work in practice
  •  The confidence to be able to express your own best practice
  • The learning that enables you to appreciate the diversity of accepted forms of current theory and/or research and writing that helps you express your practice
  • A desire to continue your own learning in ways required for professional practice
  •  A strong interest in sharing and comparing with other practitioners

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 (e.g. 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.

As this framework already works for a large number of people with established practices in Executive Coaching, you may ask how will it work for you?

 

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. “

Wednesday, May 28th

The capacity of the Gestalt coach to be aware of, to understand, and to appreciate clients’ processes is core to Gestalt coaching. Gestalt theory and practice positions awareness as the pivotal transformative agency that ignites change. Gestalt practitioners practice to become “awareness agents," which means using self-data (sensory input) and the present moment (“presence”) in conjunction with external (environmental) data at and/or across different system boundaries (interpersonal, group, organizational, or beyond). Mindful use of self is a signature strength of the awareness agent. This session will provide an overview of the coaching gifts of using one's presence and use of self as an awareness agent to create and implement interventions that assist clients to identify the unaware processes that impact their personal or shared goals, which in turn mobilizes clients’ energy to meet personal and professional challenges.

 

Specifically You Will Learn:

  •     Introduction to the Cycle of Experience: A core Gestalt theoretical construct
  •     Introduction to ways of connecting with one's awareness as a change agent
  •     Introduction to Levels of System: Connections with visible and invisible ways of using one's awareness
  •     Introduction to practices that support the coaching path to mastery
  •     Advanced coach
  •     Coach skills
  •      Specialty areas: Gestalt and holistic approaches, high performance organizational group and team facilitation, organizational leadership coaching

Coaching that gets results demands an alchemy of sorts. It requires the coach to be conscious - to go beyond who we think we should be and show up whole; physically resilient, emotionally intelligent, mentally agile and spiritually conscious. Great coaches are resonant coaches. They get results. They radiate positive energy, igniting positive attitudes in their clients.

 

Developing resonance is foundational for your ongoing success as a coach. It speaks to the true alignment of energy in relationship with someone or something else. It gives us clarity for how we show up physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually in our life. It calls us to become more of who we really are, to show up whole with a greater understanding of how we can create powerful connections and effectively drive transformation in our personal lives, professional careers and even global organizations.

 

Learn the Resonance Code Model to develop a powerful resonance to build agility, trust, engagement and exceptional transformations for yourself and your clients.

 

Specifically You Will Learn:

  •     How to open in full resonant dialogue with clients
  •     The Resonance Code model for creating better quality relationships with clients
  •     A deeper understanding of the subtle energies and their impact upon the coaching conversation
  •     The roots, relationships and rhythm of an agile conversation
  •     Shifting from ego system to eco system awareness

The most important coaching tool any coach can possess is a fully developed ‘Self as Coach” – the internal landscape of the self. Assessments, books, and tools are no replacement for the coach’s ability to hone a well developed ‘self as coach’ that allows the coach to calibrate in key areas for maximizing the quality of the coaching experience in order to reach key goals.

 

Through this session you will learn to:

•    Identify the key ingredients in the ‘self as coach’ domain
•    Assess your own areas of development in use of self
•    Identify the traps that reduce your effectiveness as coach
•    Examine the impact the use of self has on a successful coaching engagement
