Accelerating Your Journey From Good To Great Coaching:
Compelling Insights From the Research And Realities of Executive Coaching
Presenter: David B. Peterson, Ph.D;
Director, Learning and Development at Google
Join this lively, interactive presentation to learn the surprising reasons why it is relatively easy to become a good coach, and yet rather difficult to become a great coach. (Note: it’s also pretty easy to be a bad coach, and this presentation highlights some of the key reasons why.)
We'll also look at the myths and realities of such questions as:
• How can Executive Coaches best help people gain insight, build skills, and ensure that learning lasts?
• When is it better for coaches to ask powerful questions, and when is it better to give advice?
• Is the coaching relationship really that important?
• Are some people uncoachable?
