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.
On August 28th, ICF Maryland and Johns Hopkins Applied Physical Lab will host a Northeast Region event to allow employers and coaches to explore coaching approaches, why they work and how to use them. ICF Virginia registrants will be connected live to the event through the Virginia Tech Richmond Center.
Four scenarios will be presented by employers at various stages of the journey to establish cultures that include coaching. We will learn from these organizational leaders and their internal and external coaches about how coaching has helped position their cultures to adapt to emerging business needs.
Facilitated small group dialogues will follow each employer/coach presentation and will include specific future-focused questions. Responses from each group will be captured and summarized for all attendees.
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 it could work in the organizations you serve.
Plan to attend in-person or via live streaming.
