3.27.15 – Two Quick Announcements

Hello Columbia Coaching Learning Community! 

While the calendar suggests that Spring “should be here” the weather does not suggest its arrival.  A few quick announcements:

OD Network Presentation

I had the opportunity to interact with a very engaged community of over 50 individuals on the evening of March 26th – as the invited speaker for OD Network NYC Chapter. Topic: Emotional Competence (EQ): Implications for OD Practitioners. Use the link below for a full description of the session:

http://www.odnny.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=2399

I’ve also started a discussion thread in the “Member Blog” section of our community site where you can:  (1) download a copy of the presentation and (2) continue the conversation by raising questions, making observations, and/or sharing resources. Use the link below to:

Pilot Project: Coaching Referral Service Update

I sent out a communication on March 8th to all Columbia Alumni who have completed the entire Coaching Certification Program inviting participation in a “proof of concept” CCCP in collaboration with the reconstituted Columbia Coaching Learning Association (CCLA). Columbia is working a custom client on a program and wanted to add a coaching component. We saw this as a great opportunity start the process of defining the requirements for, and creating a process, for providing organizational clients access to our network of credentialed coaches.

As part of this pilot we’ve:

  • Developed a 1-page coach bio template with guidelines;
  • Defined the requirements for this coach engagement with the organizational client;
  • Communicated this opportunity and related requirements to our network of alumni in the Metro NYC areas; and
  • Worked with those who sent bios to ensure compliance with the guidelines and forward those who met the requirements to our organizational contact for consideration.

The organizational client identified 6 finalist to “interview” from the pool of candidates send and is in the process selecting 4 coaches for this engagement. We are still in the process of negotiating with the organizational client to provide “laser feedback” to all who have submitted bios so that everyone can learn from the experience.

We’ve already learned a great deal about how to engage with potential organizational clients; partner with the to define requirements of the engagement and what they seek from potential coaches; and importantly, the systems and tools that will need to be in place for the Program and CCLA to implement a coach referral service.

We see our collective role as (Program and CCLA):

  • Defining the Process (with the goal of it being as self-service for both clients and coaches);
  • Maintaining the Work Flow (for providing access to our growing network of coaches); and
  • Promoting this Service to Potential Organizational Clients (including outlining the process).

We DO NOT see our role as:

  • A decision maker (client will define requirements and select coaches); or
  • Employer (client will set coaching rates, contract with, and pay coaches directly).

Stay tuned!

Books by Columbia Program Alumni

One of the great joys of being an educator is to plant seeds and watch what emerges. For several years GSAEC (Graduate School Alliance for Education in Coaching) has been creating a set of academic standards for graduate level programs – Standard 15.0: Contribution to New Knowledge and to the Field of Executive and Organizational Coaching—focuses on knowledge generation and dissemination.

During on this standard, over the course of our 8 month program participants are given access to Columbia University’s Online Library for the purpose of completing a guided coach-specific research project to: (1) gain exposure to research and theoretical frameworks in peer review academic journals and (2) ground one’s professional practice is existing knowledge, while at the same time contributing the applied knowledge base in the field.

To date, our graduates have created 300 coach-specific projects, on a variety of topics—use the link below to review abstracts from our 11 cohorts (NOTE: scroll down to the “blue” cohort bars near the bottom of the page:

Coming of Edge: Coaching’s Emergence as an Academic Discipline

In the past few months two peer review journals have published special issues focused on coaching, an indicator that coaching is coming of age, as a respected academic discipline! While there is much work yet to be done to realize this aim, these are positive signs:

Graduate Education in Coaching: The July 2014 Issue (Volume 5) of the Journal of Psychological Issues in Organizational Culture includes 6 articles that were presented at the Graduate School Alliance for Education in Coaching (GSAEC) 1st International Conference earlier this year. Learn more about this issue by visiting the publisher’s site:

5.30.14 Update:

It is with deep sadness that we share with you that Maxine Greene, Teachers College's great philosopher queen, passed away at the age of 96.

Here at TC, Maxine, like John Dewey in his own time, was a living lens for all that is best and most essential about our mission and work. She was a beloved and cherished figure who served as a touchstone for generations of TC students, alumni and faculty.

Her obituary appears on the TC home page, and can be accessed at: http://www.tc.columbia.edu/news.htm?articleID=9496

5.17.14 Updates:

The program planning team is now busy assigning reviewers in order to meet our June 9th decision notification target for conference proposals, a rather tight turnaround time resulting from our extending the deadline from April 30th to May 16.

The extension proved to be a wise strategic decision, given both the number and quality of additional submissions received recently! Our 1st International Coaching Conference is shaping up nicely. The registration site will open shortly. Stay tuned - we'll be posting information about keynote presenters soon!

You might want to take a look at this piece on "Coaching - Business Essential or Management Fad?" published by The Corporate Research Forum:

2.17.14 Update:

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new "Columbia Coaching Learning Network" web-presence! Currently we have the "Home Page" complete, and the majority of the "Conference" pages up and running. In the coming 2 weeks we plan to:

  • Activate the "online submission" tool so that proposals can be posted;
  • Continue to enhance the navigation between the various pages of the site for ease of use; and
  • Encourage current program participants, alumni, friends of the program, and members of the boarder coaching and talent management community to "enroll" on the site and provide suggestions for ways to connect. 

Once the above are in place, we'll then:

  • Provide functionality to create various "groups" where more targeted connections can be realized; and
  • Create a "Columbia Certified Coach" space where all those who have completed the entire program can register a profile - we'll connect this space to the "program website" as well as the "Executive Education" website of the Columbia Business School.
