Coaching Report: August-September 2021

Curated by: The IOC Team

  • Meet our Extraordinary Conference Speakers on September 23, 24, 25

    We invite all coaches, and everyone interested in coaching, to join our annual conference from home this year – saving you time and travel costs to Boston. The conference is an annual collaboration of the Institute of Coaching, McLean, and Harvard Medical School.

    At the 13th Coaching in Leadership and Healthcare conference, you will meet a precious group of brilliant minds and coaching scholars in leadership, executive coaching, healthcare and well-being, who will guide us in Sculpting our Future Together, making art out of coaching science. Our presenters will steer coaches toward the future of leadership, positive psychology, self-determination, inclusion, well-being, psychological safety, resilience, remote work, and of course coaching.

    Join us on September 23, 24, and 25 so that we can sculpt the future of coaching and leadership together. We can’t wait to be with you.

  • Email replies that show up a week later. Video chats full of “oops... sorry no you go” and “can you hear me?!” Ambiguous text-messages. Is it any wonder communication takes us so much time and effort to figure out? How did we lose our innate capacity to understand each other? Humans rely on body language to connect and build trust, but with most of our communication happening from behind a screen, traditional body language signals are no longer visible - or are they?
