Webinar: Cracking the Code: The Power of Coaching in Change Leadership

The Power of Coaching in Change Leadership Webinar Presenters
October 3, 2019 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Expanding beyond the terrain of leadership development, a new frontier is opening for coaches within organizations: coaching as an integral part of the change management tool kit. This territory is staked out by a recent body of research from the Human Capital Institute (HCI) and the International Coach Federation (ICF). More studies are underway exploring how coaching and science can enable sustained engagement, foster resilience and leverage champions during major change efforts.  

In this highly interactive webinar, Maria Darby, CEO of the Association of Change Management Professionals (ACMP), and Jan Rybeck, Master Certified Coach and long-time IOC Fellow, come together to explore the exciting growth edge where coaching and change management merge to cultivate leadership resiliency and sustained engagement.  

Discussion will explore:

  • How growing attention on change competency in the global change management community is amplifying the value and role of leadership coaching 
  • The HCI Study’s findings and evidence of the impact and ROI of integrating coaching in organizational change capabilities and initiatives
  • Trends in integrating coaching as core to the change management toolkit – evidenced further by growing collaboration between the two professions
  • Ways coaching can be adapted to support system wide change
