MESSAGE FROM CONFERENCE INSTITUTIONAL CHAIR
A Bit About The Columbia Coaching Program
Since its launch in 2007, The Columbia Coaching Program (CCP) has attracted over 500 participants, hailing from over 48 countries and 31 states across America! CCP is the result of a strategic partnership between the Columbia Business School and the Department of Organization and Leadership at Teachers College (http://www.tc.columbia.edu/coachingcertification/).
The conference will bring together a global learning community, to discover and experience best practice methods, approaches, mind-sets, tools and frameworks employed to leverage the power of coaching in a variety of settings. On Wednesday October 22, 2014, there will be space for various social and networking events, starting with lunch and bringing the entire community together via a “World Café.” The following day, the conference theme will be further explored through a combination of paper presentations, experiential learning sessions, coach demonstrations, panel discussions and invited key note presentations.
We invite you to come together in community with others practitioners, researchers, scholars, students, and coaches to share and expand on our collective wisdom related to supporting leaders in productively navigating the world of work in the 21st century. Today leaders are called upon to respond to contemporary organizational challenges, while realizing the opportunities embedded in an increasingly global, diverse, and rapidly changing environment. Specifically, the conference will focus on the role of executive and organizational coaching engagements in support of leaders in this emerging work-space.
We invite you to submit proposals in four categories: (1) paper presentations; (2) experiential learning sessions; (3) coaching demonstrations; and (4) panel discussions. Our conference theme will center on the role of “space” and the work of executive and organizational coaching; yet to be inclusive, proposals are invited on all dimensions of research, theory and practice dealing with executive and organizational coaching. Led by a group of conference presenters and leaders, participants will collaboratively explore a diversity of perspectives and practices regarding the various work contexts where coaching may occur. The conference will envision future possibilities for the evolution of executive and organizational coaching while appreciating existing contributions. English is the official language of the conference. Proposals and abstracts for papers, experiential learning sessions, coach demonstrations, and panel discussions must be submitted in English.
