The focus of this session will be to examine the six elements of the Self as Coach model (outlined in Completely Revised Handbook of Coaching); and explore how each of these elements impacts specific coaching vignettes and situations. We will explore a series of tools and practices a coach can utilize in deepening one’s capacity to take full advantage of ‘use of self’ in the coaching engagement.

The greatest, most versatile, and often enigmatic tool that we possess as coaches is ‘the self as coach’ — that is, the whole, cultivated, managed self that we bring to the coaching experience to inspire and help effect change. Without this we are wildly diminished in our work.

To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others
Daniel Pink - WBECS
GET TICKET Friday, June 14 3:00 PM (EDT) SHOW IN MY TIME
Presenter – DANIEL H. PINK – Bestselling Author on The Changing World of Work

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in nine Americans works in sales. Every day more than fifteen million people earn their keep by persuading someone else to make a purchase.

But dig deeper and a startling truth emerges:

Yes, one in nine Americans works in sales. But so do the other eight.

Whether we’re employees pitching colleagues on a new idea, entrepreneurs enticing funders to invest, or parents and teachers cajoling children to study, we spend our days trying to move others. Like it or not, we’re all in sales now.

To Sell Is Human offers a fresh look at the art and science of selling. As he did in Drive and A Whole New Mind, Daniel H. Pink draws on a rich trove of social science for his counterintuitive insights. He reveals the new ABCs of moving others (it’s no longer “Always Be Closing”), explains why extraverts don’t make the best salespeople, and shows how giving people an “off-ramp” for their actions can matter more than actually changing their minds.

Try Feedforward Instead of Feedback
Dr Marshal Goldsmith - WBECS
GET TICKET Friday, June 21 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM EDT SHOW IN MY TIME
Presenter - DR. MARSHALL GOLDSMITH - Voted the World's #1 Leadership Thinker by Harvard Business Review

There is a fundamental problem with all types of feedback: it focuses on the past, on what has already occurred—not on the infinite variety of opportunities that can happen in the future. As such, feedback can be limited and static, as opposed to expansive and dynamic.

Providing feedback has long been considered to be an essential skill for leaders. As they strive to achieve the goals of the organization, employees need to know how they are doing. They need to know if their performance is in line with what their leaders expect. They need to learn what they have done well and what they need to change. Traditionally, this information has been communicated in the form of “downward feedback” from leaders to their employees. Just as employees need feedback from leaders, leaders can benefit from feedback from their employees.

Marshall will go over the eleven (11) reasons that the feedforward process works.

He will also describe what made the participants in a feedforward role playing exercise exclaim that the exercise was “great”, “energizing”, “useful”, or “helpful,” and one of the most commonly-mentioned words was “fun!”

Specifically You Will Learn:

  • How feedforward can often be preferable to feedback in day-to-day interactions
  • How feedforward can make life a lot more enjoyable
  • How leaders can dramatically improve the quality of communication in their organizations
  • How to encourage others to use feedforward
  • How feedforward helps focus on the promise of the future

As one of the founders of the entire field of coaching, Karen holds a depth of knowledge about human development that is unsurpassed, and was one of last year’s WBECS most talked about and downloaded speakers. Ann is a true thought leader and sought-after speaker in the emerging world of brain-based coaching and brings a curiosity and passion for her topic that never fails to engage her audience deeply.

Current research in neuroscience points to more and more evidence that the most effective leaders (and human beings) are those who have the power of integration. By this we mean a level of self-knowledge and range that is beyond the usual standard we would call “awareness,” and moving into the realm of true mastery. At this level of self-awareness, these leaders are able to know themselves, and stand firmly for their truth and values and from there, create win-win, collaborative, fulfilling and successful relationships with others—for the sake of everyone’s goals and success. These leaders have the ability to meet complex situations and challenges with the flexibility required in today’s ever-changing world.

Specifically You Will Learn:

  • Current research on the brain takes the guesswork out of effective leadership
  • The most powerful and effective leaders are those who can access both halves of their brain
  • The best leaders are able to stand tall in who they are and be receptive to others
  • The Co-Active model provides a road map for effectiveness as a leader or coach of leaders and executives
  • The most important thing in today’s complex world is learning to let go of “either/or” thinking where you take one side or another and move to the center of “yes, and” thinking, where there is both clarity and commitment as well as openness and flexibility.
  • Ideas and tools for using the concepts immediately with clients

Coaching in the 21st Century. A required re-invention
GET TICKET Wednesday, June 26 1:00 PM (EDT) SHOW IN MY TIME
Presenter – MYLES DOWNEY – Thought Leader and Entrepreneur In The World Of Performance, Learning and Coaching

The ‘rules’ that defined the 20th Century business are working less and less effectively in a world of work that is defined speed and complexity. New approaches to leadership and management are required for success in the 21st Century. Creativity, innovation, talent and retention are no longer HR concerns – they are the concern of each and every leader and manager.

In this world of work coaches can play a key and possibly vital role – but that cannot be done if operating from a 20th Century model of Coaching.

This is the challenge for the profession and for each individual coach who wants to thrive.

The very quality of coaching needs to improve – and not just at the edges, around a ‘leading edge’ innovation – but in the core skills.

Coaches need to understand how the vast amount of research into human excellence can be applied so that the people that coach go beyond current levels of performance and attainment – Enabling Genius.

And to ‘enable genius’ in others then understanding one’s own ‘genius’ as a coach might be a starting point

Specifically You Will Learn:

  • An understanding of the seismic shifts in the word of work and the likely consequences
  • Insight into the opportunities that are emerging for coaches to make a difference
  • An understanding of the demands on leaders and managers in the 21st Century and how they now need to perform
  • Insight into how to work with such Leaders and Managers
  • A reminding of the core skill in coaching – facilitating thinking
  • An insight into Enabling Genius – the knowledge and techniques behind excellence
  • Techniques and exercise to allow further thinking beyond the presentation
Business Growth through Innovation Coaching
GET TICKET Thursday, June 27 3:00 AM (EDT) SHOW IN MY TIME
Presenter – JOHN LEARY-JOYCE – Business Growth through Innovation Coaching

Without innovation companies stagnate and eventually die.

To support change and growth the first step is having the foresight to spot what is ‘coming over the horizon’ and develop a response strategy – the essence of traditional coaching.

The next step is more difficult, clearing out the dead wood, the processes, products and people that clog up the system. Coaching needs to be tougher and more challenging. It takes courage and determination to risk letting go of the old and familiar especially if it still works. But cutting back leaves room for renewal, stimulates fresh approaches and new ideas. This is where Innovation Coaching becomes most effective; challenging the coachee to push the boundaries, be open to new possibilities, taking the risk to fail and learn from mistakes.

But innovation needs to be balanced with Structure, stability, solidity to convert those great ideas, seemingly unrealistic fantasies and wild daydreams into productive grounded products and services. There has to be a dynamic balance, like a seesaw – too much bureaucracy, traditional systems will leave innovation up in the air and static; while great ideas, visions, plans and strategies but no capability to develop them into feasible action will burn out eg 90's Dot-Com bubble.

Specifically You Will Learn:

  • Why innovation in today’s business matters
  • Understanding the context for undertaking Innovation Coaching
  • Key to success is the dynamic balance between Structure and Innovation
  • he CREATE model for structuring coaching for innovation sessions
  • The coaching process used in Being CREATIVE
  • Creative tools & techniques to use in your coaching practice
  • Experience of going through the process yourself

It’s email.

But I bet no one ever showed you the 3 ways smart coaches use email to get coaching clients.

You see, when it comes to marketing your practice, and getting clients, there is so much confusion about what works, and what to do. Most of the tactics people talk about are expensive, and complicated. And as you know, most of them don’t work at all, or you have to be incredibly disciplined, and it takes ages to see any real results at all.

That’s why I love email so much.

Specifically You Will Learn:

  • Why almost every coach who uses email gets it 100% WRONG. You’ll know the 3 big mistakes to avoid, and how to use email to sign clients, without looking spammy or salesy at all.
  • How to use a simple email system to get clients in the next seven days, even if you have our tiny list, or haven’t written to your database in months.
  • How to get your prospects to actually look forward to your emails… And hungrily consume your info while they unsubscribe or delete everyone else’s messages.
  • I’ll give you the exact communication plan to suit your market (how frequently, what topics to write about, and how to write emails that get clients).
  • Plus you’ll get my 90 day email marketing planner, so you never run out of things to say.
  • The 7 email templates you should be using right now if you want to get results fast, & clients in the next 30 days
Selling To The C-Suite: How To Get The Attention Of Senior Executives (And Keep It)
Ago Cluytens - WBECS
GET TICKET Friday, June 28 7:00 AM (EDT) SHOW IN MY TIME
AGO CLUYTENS: One of The World’s Foremost Experts On “Winning The Complex Sale” – Selling high end professional services to CxOs in the Fortune-500

Ask 100 executive coaches (and other high-end advisors) about which type of client they would love to do more work with, and 90 will tell you the same thing.

Senior executives and the C-suite.

It’s the Holy Grail. To be perceived as a trusted advisor and build long-term relationships with senior people inside blue chip corporations.

Understandable. It’s where the action is. Where the money is. Where decisions are made. Where impact is made. But getting there is far from easy. What worked yesterday no longer works today.

The economic outlook, corporate restructuring, cost containment measures, the changing attitude to risk and shifting buying patterns have all come together and created the perfect storm.

Many executives coaches struggle to keep the relationships they have, let alone build new ones.

But there is a small minority of high-end executive coaches and advisors that are successfully building new relationships, securing new business and doing the work they love - with clients they love.

What’s the difference ? In this session, you will learn:

  • The Business Case: Why You (Really) Want To Sell To The C-Suite
  • Why Executives Not Just Are Different – But Think Different
  • 5 Key Questions To Ask Yourself Before You Even Set Foot In The Door
  • The Golden Gate: 6 Things You’ll Need To Be Invited Into The C-Suite
  • The 7 Biggest Mistakes Sellers Make When Selling To Executives
  • A Proven Step-By-Step Approach To Building Your Prospecting A-List
