Description

“The future is already here – we just haven’t paid attention”, according to Futurist Gerd Leonhard.

Digital disruption, AI, blockchain, and the shift to platform-based, “open source” business models are some of the factors contributing to heightened uncertainty and demand for an agile and innovative workforce. Coaching is increasingly seen as a flexible, individually-tailored business performance intervention and an accelerator of organisational learning – a crucial component for enterprises to thrive.

However, the growth of coaching does not necessarily equate to the growth of coaches. In my experience over the past decade, leaders have been getting better at self-directed learning. They are becoming more reflective, willing to try new ideas, and doing for themselves much of what coaches used to do for them. Yet, many coaches are still focused on listening skills, performance management, and career purpose. That’s not the future of coaching. These four trends define what coaches need to do to keep up:

  1. Understand the technology and the ecosystems within which leaders reside. It’s not enough just to offer self-help strategies. Coaches need to come up to speed with the new environment, and they will have to demonstrate at least the same complexity of mind as their clients.
  2. Leaders are looking for experts to guide them on their journey of self-development, and to “curate” their experience. This requires a much more narrative approach to coaching and an ability to go deep into areas of practice, such as mindfulness, adult development, and meaning making.
  3. Excellent coaches help leaders solve their toughest, most complicated problems. In the open source era, these are often the kinds of problems for which there are no right answers. The future of coaching is enabling wisdom in leaders to make the best decisions for an interconnected world.
  4. Coaching is being embedded throughout organisations. HR business partners, Heads of Departments, managers, and peers are all learning coaching skills. This is a growth opportunity for coaches, not a threat. Open source leaders need guidance and support to create a coaching culture for their organisations to thrive.

This workshop will guide you through these four trends, giving you practical examples and experiential learning to become an “open source coach” for the digital era. If you want to embrace the future and be ahead of the pack, then I invite you to join me for this one-off opportunity!
