Session length: 45 minutes
The development and evolution of coaching in recent years is unquestionable and the many benefits of coaching at the level of the individual, group and team are well documented. Currently, one of the major growth areas is how coaching is being positively leveraged within organisations to support change and performance at a broader and systemic level. This pre-summit session will position the impact and role of coaching within organisations by taking a look at some of the research based evidence for how coaching is being used as a strategic resource. In 2018 the International Coach Federation (ICF) completed a significant research study with the Human Capital Institute (HCI) on building a coaching culture for change management.
This session will explore some of that research to demonstrate the compelling link between coaching and more effective change management and indeed how that also relates to enhanced performance for the organisation. The session will provide valuable insights, data and resources for coaches, organisations and other professionals to help understand what is the important role coaching can play at the systemic level and why that is so important and beneficial. Following on from this session, the summit session in November will go on to explore in more depth how coaching can be implemented for maximum effect and positive impact.

In our pre-summit session, we shared some compelling data from the 2018 International Coach Federation (ICF)/Human Capital Institute (HCI) research on building a coaching culture for change management. This positioned what is happening with the growth and development of coaching within organisations and why coaching is a powerful strategic tool for systemic change and increased performance at the individual, team and organisational levels.
In this session, we explore in more depth how coaching can be implemented for maximum effect and positive impact. We begin by looking at some case studies of organisations who have successfully integrated coaching into their practices and processes to create what is called a “coaching culture” and we will share the key criteria that define and differentiates an organisation when working towards and achieving this goal.
This is followed by exploring the role of the coach practitioner in this process and how they can become a strategic resource to their organisational clients. The session will also look at the broader context and how coaching for systemic change and performance creates opportunity for people and organisations to thrive within the VUCA environment and what is sometimes called the “4th industrial or digital revolution”.
Finally, we will also share stories, examples, and anecdotes from our own experiences as coach practitioners and coaching culture specialists and seek input and questions from the audience to further enrich the discussion.
