June 26, 2016 Update
Where does the time go? I wanted to provide a quick update on the status of the Columbia Coaching Program 2.0 Redesign Project. The good news is we received over 40 applications from our call-for-volunteers in March. The bad news is a number of other priorities has forced a delay in selecting and launching the redesign team. While we are now ready to launch the redesign team, given the delay,I will be reaching all to all those who applied to check-in our interests this week.
The another good news is we’ve been making good progress with important inputs to the redesign work:
- As core member of the faculty for the new Leveraging Neuroscience to Power Organizational and Individual Performance, I made the strategic decision to work with program faculty to learn more about our key thinkers in this space across the university (this has turned out to be a wise time investment);
- We applied for and received a Provost Grants to help support expenses for the redesign project (making the team’s effort more efficient once launched); and
- I’ve been asked to facilitate a group of neuroscientist from universities and think tanks around the world – all 3 of these factors contributed to the launch of the redesign team;
Below is a graphic the reflects our branding for the new version of The Columbia Coaching Program highlighting the various disciplines that will inform the new design:

It's been 8 years since we launched The Columbia Coaching Program. While we've made adjustments to the program after each cohort, it is time to engage in our first major redesign, what we are calling "Columbia Coaching Program 2.0!" There are a number factors influencing our motivation to engage in this work, the most significant is to explicitly align the program with Columbia University commitment to be a world-leader in leveraging neuroscience as a multidisciplinary integrator across the university. An indicator of this commitment is the planned opening of the new Jerome L. Greene Science Center (mind, brain & behavior). Use the link below to learn more:
I am looking for a diverse team of Program Alums, Program Instructors; Graduate Students; and University Faculty to engage in this rapid redesign process (between April and September of 2016). Given our global footprint, we welcome program alums (who have completed the entire program, including ACI/certification) from around the world to express interests. Depending on the geographic mix, we'll devise a strategy to work across time zones - we'll simply have to be creative and leverage technology. The attached document below provide more detail about this exciting opportunity. I hope to hear from many of you! I have extended to "response" date to Monday, March 21, 2016!
