Our exciting news this month is the IOC launch of a research consortium focused on human-centered leadership and coaching. With IOC benefactor AceUp as the founding consortium member, the human-centered leadership consortium will bring together expert researchers, scholars, thought-leaders, and coaches to define, measure, and implement human-centered leadership – the science-based components that together generate human empowerment, growth, thriving, and sustainability. Human-centered leadership and coaching will help define excellence in the new world of work.
As the founding consortium member, AceUp is dedicated and committed to developing solutions to help drive a more human-centered organization through transformational leadership coaching. We are grateful to AceUp for co-founding the consortium and for their generous donation that changes leadership for the good. The IOC is establishing a consortium of organizations that share this commitment – please send your ideas and suggestions for research consortium members.
The research program is divided into two phases. The first phase over twelve months will create an evidence-based definition of human-centered leadership as well as investigate how coaching enables human-centered leadership. The second phase, spanning two to four years, will measure and operationalize human-centered leadership at the individual, dyad, team, and organization levels.
This endeavor will leverage, not only the scientific literature and scholars, but also the global experience of leadership coaches who apply the principles of self-determination, positive psychology, work well-being, and eco-system research in organizations.

Some workplaces can be challenging, especially when there's a lack of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

Resilience is often defined as the ability to “bounce back” after facing difficulty. Yet, drawing on more than two decades of research, executive development roles within Fortune 500 Companies, and personal experience, Dr. Taryn Marie Stejskal has come to a different conclusion: that we are fundamentally and forever changed by our experiences, and instead, “bounce forward”, rather than backward.

This webinar will introduce practical approaches to coaching inspired by the work of Jacques Lacan. Following a brief introduction to Lacan and his insights on the nature of human subjectivity, this session will focus on ways of applying two key elements of the Lacanian field: Attending to the unique patterns in a client’s speech and intervening as a coach through the use of language Exploring the nature and importance of desire, in both client and coach While the body of Lacanian theory is vast and has a reputation for being dense and difficult to understand, the aim of this session will be to distill a few kernels to stimulate practitioners’ thinking and offer ideas that can be immediately applied. This webinar will be useful even for those who have never previously heard of Lacan.

After discussing his approach to positive provocation, Robert will address a few of the most cherished aspects of coaching by asking (and weighing in on) "Should we use less empathy?" "Should we interrupt more?" and "Should we use the client's language?" In each case, Robert will offer a look at research and draw examples from practice.
This series aims to provide a brief and highly implementable framework for measuring efficacy that coaching practitioners can apply to their own practice and evaluation.

In her early twenties, Carolyn Costin recovered from anorexia nervosa, earned two masters degrees, became a teacher and began her career as a psychotherapist. After treating her first eating disorder client in 1979, Carolyn recognized it was her calling. Her successful treatment of those with eating disorders led her to bring her philosophy to the public through her speaking, her books and the founding of her unique residential treatment center, Monte Nido.
In early 2017, Carolyn opened The Carolyn Costin Institute, which offers Eating Disorder Coach Training, a Mentor program, Continuing Education for clinicians as well as other specialized training. The field of eating disorder coaching is rapidly growing, and The Carolyn Costin Institute is setting the standard with a formal, rigorous training program, supervision and certification for eating disorder coaches globally.
