    Beyond the Page ~ The Leadership Debate

    Beyond the Page ~ The Leadership Debate

    In this interview, we talk with Marty Wightman about his article, The Leadership Debate ~ How can coaching support the prediction of upcoming changes in leadership trends?

    We have learned so much from the last two years and many people have shifted what is important to them in terms of life and work view.  In the coming year, we will see many trends continue and emerge in our own worlds.  Coaching support will be utilized and sought out more readily by those in leadership positions as core trends start to emerge or even stabilize. 

    Remote working vs. hybrid working vs. a full return to the office: the fight is on. It is our responsibility as leadership coaches to allow the debate to be heard but become the judge and jury of the debate. 

    Marty qualified as a coach in 2007 where he set up his practice in London, UK. He holds a Master's Degree in Psychology from the University of East London.  In addition to his academic qualifications, he is member of the Association for Coaching, a Senior Member of the ACCPH and is trained by Stanford University Professors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans in Life Design.

    Join us as we learn more from Marty about how coaching leadership will be critical in providing a richer connection between the workforce and leadership.

    Beyond the Page ~ Get off to a Great Start...and Achieve Great Results!

    In this interview, we talk with Veronica Munro about her article, Get off to a Great Start...and Achieve Great Results!

    The first steps we take at the beginning of our coaching are so very impactful, as we are engaging not just with the person in front of us, but with multiple hidden layers of the person inside; a person who wants to receive validation, hope and support.

    A successful starting point for the coaching is to begin with the process of positive engagement with the coachee and their stakeholders that provides specific feedback and measures of success for the coaching engagement from the outset.

    Veronica is an International Executive and Leadership Coach and Strategic Facilitator with over 25 years' experience coaching specifically CEOs, C-suite executives and their teams in over 30 countries within Africa, Asia, Middle East, Pakistan, Europe, and North America. Her strengths include her exceptional ability to work closely with leaders, leveraging their talents and facilitating sustainable behavioural change that supports them to achieve greater levels of business performance as well as personal success and alignment. 

    Veronica has a strong business background working as a senior leader herself within global organisations for a number of years.  Her talents as a coach include being relationship-led, strengths based, strategic and having a pragmatic approach. She is well known for her ‘transformative’ approach.

    Join us as we learn more from Veronica about how to help our coaching clients increase their self-awareness and encourage them to motivate their own changes

    Beyond the Page ~ Value Yourself First - The impact of coaching on the coach.

    Beyond the Page ~ Value Yourself First - The impact of coaching on the coach.

    In this interview, we talk with Joseph O'Connor about his article, Value Yourself First - The impact of coaching on the coach.

    A coaching session is a co-creation between coach and client. Both learn something, both grow as a result. Coaching can be stressful so we need to be aware of the signals of stress from our own body and mind.  Clients can trigger you. They may have issues that are close to a problem you have.  Sometimes they have a need that causes you to feel the pressure to fulfill that need rather than be a coach. Coaches may be very empathic, and client's emotions can be infectious. Self-reflection is crucial for a coach, although you can use the issue to challenge the client. 

    Coaching is a wonderful profession.  We get to talk with all sorts of people, in all walks of life and help them resolve difficult situations. It also provides many opportunities for learning and focusing on what you learn can have a positive impact on both the coach and the client.

    Joseph O'Connor is an author, executive coach, trainer and consultant.  He has given trainings in over thirty countries and specializes helping executives become more authentic leaders.  Joseph is a global director and co-founder of the International Coaching Community (ICC). He founded the Neuroscience Coaching Centre in 2019 for coaches to have access to the best Neuroscience resources for coaching.

    His vision is to contribute to an integrated model of coaching – physical, mental and spiritual - to help all to act with practical wisdom in an increasingly complex world.

    Beyond the Page ~ ROI: The Big Question

    Beyond the Page ~ ROI: The Big Question

    In this interview, we talk with Michelle Chambers and Evelina Rog about their article, ROI: The Big Question - Demonstrating the true value and impact of team coaching.

    Team coaching is still considered a newer and evolving field, and how best to evaluate and demonstrate its impact continues to evolve. We see the purpose of measurement in team coaching as not only to demonstrate impact, but also to focus the coaching on developing awareness and capacity in relation to meaningful goals that are aligned with or directly support business priorities.

    Creating team awareness and collecting feedback to measure and assess the team before and after team coaching engagement reinforces the value and impact that team coaching contributes both to the effectiveness of the team and to the organization in achieving its business priorities.

    A thought leader in team coaching and organization development, Michelle has provided global consulting, leadership and coaching for many organizations, including several of Canada’s Top 50 Employers. Michelle is passionate about supporting others to create collaborative cultures that enable people to achieve purpose in their work. A Certified Team Performance Coach, global trainer of team coaches, speaker and author, she has been at the forefront of the team coaching field since she was responsible for leadership development, enterprise wide for Telus Mobility in Canada.

    Evelina is an executive and team coach, award winning executive educator, and an expert in vertical leadership development. She leads a thriving private practice partnering with senior leaders and founders and their leadership teams to transform the way they lead, team, and navigate through complex human and organizational challenges. Evelina integrates cutting-edge science and practice to support her client’s development in areas that are most critical to sustainable success and business growth, yet most difficult to change.

    Join us as we learn how to best assess ROI in team coaching with Michelle and Evelina.

    Beyond the Page ~ Coach the Cure, Not the Symptoms

    Beyond the Page ~ Coach the Cure, Not the Symptoms

    In this interview, we talk with Alice Ackerman and Peter Demarest about Alice's article entitled "Coach the Cure, Not the Symptoms. A physician's perspective on assessments and a paradigm-shifting science for coaching."

    Dr. Alice Ackerman is an Executive and Leadership Coach focused on individuals in healthcare settings as well as individuals undergoing transitions in their personal or professional life. She brings over three decades of experience in healthcare leadership and teaching in academic environments, as well as her vast clinical experience as a pediatric intensivist, to her current work. Alice is a staunch advocate of the role of women in organizational leadership.

    Peter Demarest is the co-founder of Axiogenics, LLC, the leading developers of the science of neuro-axiology, the  VQ Profile Assessment system, and related coaching and training systems, methods,  materials. Axiogenics trains, certifies, and supports practitioners worldwide in use of Axiogenics’ game-changing technology.

    As a pediatric physician who joined the coaching world, Alice found herself dealing with many of the same frustrating challenges coaching clients as she did with her medical patients.  She found her patients and their parents had no effective way to communicate what was bothering them but she had numerous diagnostic tools to help diagnose the underlying cause and offer a treatment plan. 

    As a coach, she found the assessments she was introduced to in her training were inadequate and missing something important.  They lacked was objective, reliable, and actionable data regarding the causes and a potential "cure" for whatever "dis-ease" the client was experiencing which was why they sought coaching help.

    Join us as we discuss how Alice sought out a "better way" and found neuro-axiology through Axiogenics, LLC and Peter Demarest.

    Beyond the Page ~ Coaching Design 3.0

    Beyond the Page ~ Coaching Design 3.0

    In this interview, we talk with Pam Boney about her article Coaching Design 3.0 ~ Six ways to redesign your coaching for a new era.

    Pam Boney is a senior executive coach, a tech startup founder, and an innovator in personality development. She brings decades of professional experience in leading, advising, and coaching individuals and teams to achieve exceptional performance. As designer and author of the Tilt 365 model, a scientifically validated, strength-based character development framework and technology, Pam is an innovative thought leader in the domain of character science and intelligence.

    It is time for us to rethink the coaching design because we are needed more than ever in an era of the highest levels of stress, anxiety and worry that any of us have ever experienced.

    Imagine a coaching program that shrinks the discovery phase from 15 hours to one. And coaching sessions from 20 hour-long sessions down to 12 that are 20-40 minutes - all with even better results.  With the right approach, design, assessments, and measures of success, this faster, deeper approach is not only possible; innovators in our domain have well-established proof of concept.

    Join us as we discuss how Pam went about making changes to the original coaching design and how you can implement these changes in your coaching.
