If you are a member of the IOC, you know that we have many resources, discussion groups, webinars, and events each month. We have many ways for coaches to access scientifically validated learning opportunities.
Yet, here at IOC, we do not feel that any of these resources are our greatest assets. Our greatest asset is our people. The team that helps create this content, the members that support and contribute, the thought leaders that partner with us, and the community that holds up our mission.
This is why we are so excited to announce that our team has grown and we are welcoming two new directors to the IOC. As well as express our gratitude to the years that Dr. Irina Todorova served as the Director of Research. Dr. Todorova has guided the IOC in regard to scientific integrity and research with great skill and knowledge. She will be greatly missed by the entire IOC community.

This dose draws on a seminal 2014 research article called The Psychology of Inspiration by social personality psychologist Todd Thrash and his colleagues. Over a decade, this group of scholars conducted experimental studies, created a validated instrument to measure inspiration, and advanced our understanding of how inspiration works.
When a leader’s responsibilities and strengths expand, there is more at stake and further to fall. The strain of the greater risks creates a shadow side, including doubt and anxiety. One moment a leader may feel omnipotent and the next moment, impotent. This internal conflict then expresses in some form of overdrive that can become a derailer, providing an opportunity for mindful self-compassion, insight, self-regulation, and growth.
In this dose, we summarize an article by Erik de Haan (IOC coaching thought leader) titled: The Leadership Shadow: How to Recognize and Avoid Derailment, Hubris, and Overdrive The article, while published in 2016, is even more relevant today during the pandemic era. The stresses and strains of the pandemic have led all of us to get more acquainted with our shadows.
Both coaching and OD are evolving as professional practices. This is primarily due to organizations reaching out to both coaching and OD for help to address the adaptive challenges associated with the uncertainty and volatility of these complex times. However, only recently have members of both practice communities begin to have conversations about how to create value at the individual, group, and organizational level. Marsha will lead a provocative conversation about how coaching and OD may be at an inflection point to redefine their professional identities. She will also invite the exploration of how coaching may be used as an OD intervention to accelerate strategic change in organizations and communities.
Join the co-founders of the global Climate Coaching Alliance (CCA), Eve Turner, Dr Alison Whybrow and Dr Josie McLean, to discuss how coaching is evolving within the context of large social and environmental issues we are confronting. You will hear how the CCA is developing – it is now over 1000 members in just 12 months of existence. Further, you will learn what the CCA community is learning about how to raise awareness about these confronting issues (climate and environment) without closing the conversation down. Eve, Alison and Josie will share some of the major themes that emerged out of the CCA’s 3rd 24 hour global conversation, “What’s mine to do?’ that was held on 4 March 2021.

July and August Featured Book: The Burnout Fix by Jacinta Jiménez

The need to prove oneself can be immense and can reinforce a central component of Impostor Syndrome – overworking -- resulting in burnout, lack of balance, and a constant sense of insecurity. In this session, we will identify the central characteristics of Impostor Syndrome so that you can recognize it in your clients.
