2017 Coaching in Healthcare and Leadership Conference  Recap

What do Dan Goleman, Marshall Goldsmith, Susan Cain, Margaret Wheately and Livingston Taylor have in common?  

  1. They were all part of our amazing keynote line-up at the 2017 IOC Coaching Conference.
  2. If you missed them, you can soon see them on our website conference pages. 

Over 600 people from every inhabited continent met for an amazing experience at our 10th anniversary conference, dedicated to our beloved advisor, friend and “Father of Coaching,” Sir John Whitmore. Much of his legacy is shared in the fifth edition of Coaching for Performance, just released this fall. He will be sorely missed.

The IOC Inaugural award for Excellence in Leadership was awarded to Marshall Goldsmith for his work on Stakeholder Centered Coaching (SCC) and his action philanthropy project the MG100. At the conference, Marshall led a fascinating panel discussion on SCC with three major CEO coaches, revealing how he works. 

Dan Goleman kicked off our event talking about the Science of Mindfulness. His new book Altered Traits shows how meditation can change who we are, not just our momentary experience.

Susan Cain, whose TED talk has over 16 million viewers, shared her thinking on Quiet: How to Harness the Strengths of Introverts to Transform How We Work, Lead and Innovate. Introverts are a third or half of the workforce, and we need to structure our organizations to produce the best ideas and creativity.  Margaret Wheatley asked: Who do we choose to be? She talked of Restoring Leadership as a Noble Profession and how all of us can see local issues and focus on them to create positive change and together shift the world. 

The Institute is dedicated to helping the world’s coaches, and those we coach to work toward being a force for good. Please visit us and learn more.
