Topics:

Endurance Leadership: Leading in Turbulent Times
Audience: Leaders (Keynote)
During these unprecedented times, how are we to lead our organizations effectively?  What leadership approaches do we need in order to be successful?  How do we stay grounded when everything seems to be shifting?  Thankfully, there are answers to these questions. We'll learn from a leadership story guaranteed to be even more riveting than anything we'll ever experience today. You will learn about the three key leadership principles to lead during turbulent times and what specifically you can do to lead more effectively tomorrow.

Making the Most of Your Coaching Experience
Audience: Intact Leadership Teams
So you and your team are about to get 360 feedback and work with a coach – now what?  How do you make the most of 360 feedback?  How do you make the most of coaching?  Learn a valuable model for encouraging feedback, how to read a 360 report and how to practice follow up with others.  We’ll also look at our team report to learn where we are collectively strong and where we can improve.  You’ll learn more about the executive coaching process and how to best work with your coach for maximum results.

Yes, You Can (and MUST) Measure the Results of Coaching
Audience: HR/LD/Coaches
The executive coaching field still suffers greatly from an “image problem” – many in the world do not understand what we do, and often confuse us with other less desirable occupations.  Our profession must capture legitimacy in the world’s eyes.  One solution?  Measurement!  Measuring the impact of coaching is simple, obtainable and even motivational for our clients.  Learn about the 5 levels of measurement – including measuring ROI – and figure out how to put them into practice with your clients immediately.

Executive Coaching for Results: Design, Measure, Maximize
Audience: HR/LD/Coaches
Corporate executive coaching requests have risen substantially over the past few years, now mostly aimed at the best and brightest talent.  But there is an unexpected downside - the challenge in properly managing coaching.  Practice managers in corporations are now spending extraordinarily large amounts of time screening coaches, handling new requests, tracking activities, processing purchase orders and expense forms, keeping up with the existing cadre of coaches - and do the rest of their work too!  

With this increased attention also comes heightened pressure to demonstrate results.  Are our leaders actually improving?  How do we measure the impact of coaching?  How do we measure the return on investment?

This vital session is perfectly timed to meet the needs of busy coaching program managers.  Can we manager larger and larger coaching programs, using less internal staff time along the way?  Participants will learn how to:

•    Streamline “intake” of coaching requests to move them through the system faster
•    Oversee internal and external coaches under one approach
•    Peek inside a web-based coaching management system (CMS)
•    Determine which key activity metrics to track: i.e. number of assignments, cost, etc
•    Identify the five ways to evaluate coaching
•    Conduct a coaching conversation to contract for business impact
•    Convert data to monetary value

Join coaching management expert Brian O. Underhill, Ph.D. and his team as we explore ways to maximize your coaching program.  Brian has designed numerous large-scale, global coaching programs, and his staff oversees coaching management activities at over 60 large organizations.
