Sculpting our Future Together: Coaching in Leadership

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2021 – SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021

Don't miss our 13th annual conference, a partnership of the Institute of Coaching, McLean Hospital, and Harvard Medical School, titled: Sculpting our Future Together: Coaching in Leadership & Healthcare. We will all be together in a virtual format for three half-days on September 23, 24 and 25.

A Michelangelo quote oft-cited in coaching inspires our conference: “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him/her free.” Our world class speakers, leading scientists, thought leaders, and coaching scholars, will explore how we can sculpt our future in coaching conversations that evoke the humanity and innovation needed to fully transform the pandemic’s forces into sustainable good.

Our audience includes executive/leadership coaches and leaders with a keen interest in coaching, along with physicians, clinicians, and health & wellness coaches dedicated to professional, emotional and physical well-being. Our presenters will explore the challenges, emerging opportunities for coaching, and new strategies in leadership, well-being, and inclusion, recognizing a new high for the interdependence of leadership, well-being, and diversity in all realms of human achievement.

Deepening the roots and expanding the reach of the coaching modality, the IOC’s science, research, thought leaders, resources, and community are invaluable to new and seasoned coaches, as well as for professionals adding coaching to their leadership roles or professional services.
