Coaching Report: May 2021

Curated by: The IOC Team

  • While there are diverse coaching modalities and specialties, what binds all coaches together is our heartfelt desire to help people develop, grow, and live better lives. Our conference speakers often comment on how our audience of coaches is more open-hearted and welcoming than other audiences.

    This deep desire to help drives coaches to seek out the most effective methods from art and science, and to continually improve coaching skills. This month, our webinars center around the impact that coaching has on those we serve.

    In our first webinar in May, IOC diamond sponsor AceUp will moderate an expert panel discussion on how you should (and shouldn't) measure, and talk about, the ROI of a coaching engagement. The benefits of coaching for both the individual and the organization are well-documented, but still, talking about the direct return on investment (ROI) of coaching is no small challenge. The panel will explore ways to discuss and demonstrate the benefits of coaching, and foster buy-in of key stakeholders.

    As for our second webinar, IOC Harnisch Research Grant recipient Dr. Sandra Diller will present current research on coaching difficult clients. Specifically, Dr. Diller will present studies on how coaches can work effectively to minimize the toll these sessions take on both the client -- and the coach.

    Lastly, we welcome Alison Whitmire to guide us through an interactive experiential course that increases understanding of the most common deep-rooted patterns our clients bring to coaching. Her work guides clients toward greater self-awareness and fosters a more conscious relationship with themselves, others, and the world.

    It is our honor to support you as an IOC member, as you grow your coaching impact drawing on both art and science.

    The ideal self is a fluid, fuzzy, desired future drawn from many sources including dreams, fantasies, values, life philosophy, personal strengths, and one’s life and career stage. Going further, unpacking the “ideal” component of the ideal self draws forth clarity around one’s life purpose or calling.
