Team Effectiveness: The Next Frontier of your Enterprise Coaching Strategy

Teams have long been a part of organizational culture. Now, they are essential to driving business results. Organizations who invest in team effectiveness lead their markets. Organizations who don’t struggle to keep up.

How can we adjust present models of team effectiveness to adapt to these new realities? And, what will team effectiveness look like in the future?

In this exclusive, full-day pre-conference, participants will gain:

  • A deep understanding of why teams matter more than ever and how an enterprise team coaching strategy can generate robust business outcomes;
  • Groundbreaking team effectiveness research;
  • New tools and techniques for assessing and intervening with a team;
  • First-hand insights from an all-star panel of external and internal team coaches at some of the most dynamic organizations in the world;

Designing a World Class Executive Coaching Program

Over the past 20 years, David has helped a number of leading companies design their coaching programs. As head of executive coaching at Google, he designed and led an innovative, cost-effective approach to scaling internal and external coaching for maximum impact. In this session, he’ll share his insights and experience on what works best, how organizations can get the greatest value, as well as point out where many organizations dilute or diminish the impact of coaching – often with the best of intentions. He’ll explain the thinking and critical choices behind four key questions for organizations:  Who gets coaching? Who provides the coaching? What kind of coaching programs/processes do you need? How do you measure, evaluate, and improve the impact and value of coaching?

Breaking Bias: How Neuroleadership and Coaching Can Move You Beyond Awareness to Mitigation

Unconscious bias remains one of the biggest and most intractable obstacles affecting fair people decisions. It is pervasive, persistent and left unchallenged, it becomes pernicious. Too commonly, Diversity and Inclusion and talent practices are not well integrated within organizations, putting key people decisions at risk to common biases.

Increasingly organizations recognize that simply raising awareness of bias falls short of the ultimate goal of removing bias altogether. The Neuroleadership Institute proposes a different approach based on an exploration of the underpinning biology of bias -- a simple truth that where there's brain there's bias. This approach utilizes a game-changing framework, fueled by a culture of coaching and feedback, that mitigates bias in the organization.

One Mind at a Time – Shifting to a True Coaching Mindset at IBM

IBM has a history of adapting to shifts in technology, but Harvard Business Review featured IBM in the May-June 2018 issue for the shift to Connector-Style coaching behaviors to drive the right culture and change.

In 1999, IBM started an internal Coaching Community of Practice with four coaches and it grew to 300 by 2016. In 2017, Jennifer Paylor stepped up to lead the IBM Coaching Practice and it has grown to over 2,000 people in less than two years.

Jennifer Paylor is a People Engineer in Human Resources who leads the IBM Coaching Practice for the IBM enterprise. She practices a little bit of art and a little bit of science to develop leaders using coaching and social learning experiences.  Jennifer designed "PALs powered by Watson" which is patent pending and shaping a "people minded” culture at IBM.

In this session, Jennifer will share the “One Mind at a Time” story about inspiring hope to adopt the right coaching behaviors that accelerate the shift to a true coaching mindset.

Holistic Coaching for Growth

One of the most used statements in coaching sessions when discussing potential barriers to action is “I don’t have the time”. Our leaders are working extended hours, are always “connected and congested” struggling to find “time” to produce, feel fulfilled, engage and recover. What if we are looking at the wrong measure?

Time is finite, energy is not. Maximizing capacity through looking at leadership reality and impact through a wider lens can increase productivity, employee engagement and satisfaction.

In this session Merche will share her insights on:

  • Helping leaders to evaluate their realities, become more conscious and present in their decision making, maximize capacity for growth through a holistic growth mindset
  • Using data analytics and coaching impact studies in communicating results to leadership to gain support and buy
