Keynote Session A

What Makes World Class Leaders Successful at Accelerating Growth and Teamwork in Times of Disruptive Change? A Coach and CEO Perspective

In today’s world, it is not possible for our leaders and our workforce to hold on to the status quo or to resort to defending past successes – it’s critical to embrace growth that can lead oneself and the organization into a successful future. As Dr. Thompson states: "The greatest challenge for leaders today is activating their own willingness to continue to role-model change by demonstrating growth as individuals, and then engaging their people to drive change rather than be run over by it.” As coaches, coaching practice leaders and managers, and those who are invested in helping their leaders and organizations in their transformation process – how do we do it?

In this session, Dr. Thompson will share the three drivers of success in transforming self and organizations: Purpose, Performance, and Passion. Besides also sharing examples of how to coach for these drivers, he will also take us through a short exercise that we can take back to use with our leaders, and he will conduct an interview with CEOs who have accompanied him to this session!!! 15 minutes at end of this session is devoted to round table discussions on how to apply learning from this session.

General Session B

The Humility Side of the Agile Enterprise at IBM

Humility is a key indicator of a healthy agile organization. 70% of organizations fail at leading complex agile transformations, because they declare they have it all figured out from the beginning. On the other hand, leaders who demonstrate humility understand the reality of complex change in digital economies and the hard work it takes to change culture and behavior.  From day one, humility guides them to leverage a growth mindset belief that they can get better at leading and make work better for people in the company. 

 The future of work in agile enterprises requires leadership and organizational capabilities that bring together humility with diverse skills, coaching, practices, methods, science, art, technology, and approaches that develop the right leadership behaviors and mindsets. 

Agile leadership behaviors are far more open, collaborative, and humane than machine-economy ways of leading. In this session, we will unpack the power of humility and explore techniques that actually work to drive cultural and leadership behavioral change that is compatible with healthy agile enterprises in digital economies!!! 15 minutes at end of this session is devoted to round table discussions on how to apply learning from this session.

General Session D

Right Coaching, Right Moment

The myth of a coaching culture is that it’s all coaching all the time. Rather, a successful coaching culture depends on getting the right coaching for leaders at the right moment. Leaders need different types of coaching for different situations, whether they’re trying to drive transformation or transitioning to an executive role. And they also need different types of coaches, at times needing guidance from a manager or peer while at other times wanting the objectivity of an external coach. 

In this engaging interactive session, Dr. Alex Pascal and Dr. Patrick Connell will dive into the nuts and bolts of building a coaching practice focused on getting the right coaching for the right moment. They’ll cover:

  • How and when to use internal vs. external coaches
  • Scalable coaching approaches from top executives down to first-time leaders
  • Designing coaching experiences for specific leadership moments 
  • How to leverage technology to manage your coaching practice

Towards a “Coaching Culture” - Is it Even Possible?

Organizations today often talk about creating a “coaching culture”, yet few – if any – actually get there. Learn about the four stages of maturity in an organization’s coaching approach, rate your own organization’s stage, and find out what it really takes to master a coaching culture. Panelists will share their own organization’s journey on the coaching maturity scale

The Role of Coaching in Reinventing HR at Netflix

Netflix’s approach to HR uses coaching to replace more traditional HR methods. A key component of this is leveraging HRBPs as coaches rather than controllers. Netflix has:

  • A simplified approach to compensation that is owned by leaders who are supported by the coaching the HRBP provide
  • Continuous feedback versus traditional performance management where HRBPs coach leaders on how to give and receive great feedback
  • A philosophy of people over process, where HR helps leaders navigate the huge amount of freedom they have.  

Dr Becks Port, VP Talent, Netflix

3:30 pm – 4:15 pm – F2

Coaching to Create Agility During Transformation

Organizational transformation can create confusion and uncertainty among leaders and staff. Both are looking for clarity and answers, yet those who are seeking answers are the ones who will create much of the clarity themselves. Coaching and a coach mindset create the agility needed to lead during the ambiguity that is inherent in an organization’s transformation.

  • Incorporating coach mindset and skillset into all leadership development to create agility
  • Coaching as part of patient experience
  • Coaching integrated into performance management
  • Stories of impact from qualitative and quantitative data

Answers to the following questions and how they went about implementing is the focus for this session:

  • How does a manager make the transition to coaching?

  •  If we assume that coaching is a key aspect of every leader’s role, how do we pre­pare leaders to build coaching competence and what is the impact?

Creating and Evolving a Powerful Strategic Narrative as you build a Coaching Center of Excellence

In 2014, Medtronic started on a journey to integrate Coaching into its program, processes, and culture as part of building a company of world-class leaders. With a strong strategy, they embarked on a heroic journey that included opportunities and obstacles such as new HR leadership, the largest integration in Med-Tech History, HR Model transformation, and multiple natural disasters. During this journey, the changing conditions required an evolving strategic narrative that blended benchmarking data, internal proof points, and testimonials to become recognized for excellence in coaching both internally and externally. 

Join an interactive session where you can learn how Medtronic’s coaching narrative evolved over time and apply a strategic framework in conversation with your peers to evolve your organizational narrative to enable your coaching efforts to realize their full potential.
