Space for network members to start discussions, share ideas and resources, and/or raise questions.
The Columbia Coaching Learning Association (CCLA) and Columbia Coaching Program (CCPs) where proud partners with The ICF NYC Chapter to host a site for The Regional Live Streaming Event Organized by the Maryland Chapter of the ICF on Friday, August 28, 2015 from 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM, Entitled:
How will coaching need to evolve to meet future business demands?
It was good to be with CCP alums; CCLA members (including Teachers College Graduate Students); and members of the broader coaching community inn the Metro-New York City Area - over 46 people were in attendance.
Coaching has gained significant momentum as a resource for workforce development in corporate and non-profit organizations. These institutions constantly face new challenges, such as how to guide and support the explosion of the Millennial generation in the workplace. Many are employing a coaching approach to address this and other system-wide issues. A 2014 research project conducted by the Human Capital Institute and the International Coach Federation dives deep into this topic and has resulted in the publication entitled Creating Coaching Cultures.
A senior leader and a coach representative from three organizations will present justifications, methods, and outcomes of their coaching initiatives. The featured organizations are: Rogers Communications, LifeBridge Health, and NASA. Following the presentations, the facilitator will pose a future focused question to the participants. Small groups will work together to answer the question.
This is a unique opportunity to hear directly from multiple organizations that are integrating coaching into their professional development strategy, explore how it is working for them, and consider how best to prepare for the future.
