As we emerge from the pandemic disruption, even the best coaches are forced to adapt and redesign our practices. Staying at the edge of our learning and curiosity is how we will stay relevant. It’s no longer about being a good coach in the right time zone – coaches must be willing to update skills and change mindsets.  In the new future of coaching, performance is at the forefront, not just development. Coaches realise the need to build a relationship quickly to coach in a performance-driven way and justify return on investment.

In this session, we’ll take a multi-dimensional approach to redesign coaching through the lenses of coaching practitioners and organisations, including external and internal coaches:

  • We’ll share future trends in coaching from our 2020 ‘Executive Coaching For Results’ research study
  • We’ll explore lessons learned as an award-winning Global Pharma company redesigned their coaching programme from
    matching to measurement with internal and external coaching expertise and how that is relevant to us as coaches
  • Many coaches have adjusted their practices to incorporate working for traditional and/or app-based coaching companies. We’ll
    explore how this is seen by organisations, and how coaches can do this while still maintaining their unique strengths.
