Dr David Drake is partnering with the Institute on a year-long project to help us move beyond competency models in coaching. This discussion group is your opportunity to explore his work on The Five Maturities as a new paradigm for coach development. Sessions will focus on topics such as (1) why we need to align how we assess and develop coaches with what the research concludes make the most difference; (2) why maturity is often more important that mastery when it comes to client outcomes; (3) why we need to define ‘coach’ and ‘coaching’ in new ways now; and (4) why the five maturities and five masteries are key to advancing your craft and practice.

Tricky case forum is a place for seasoned coaches to learn together from the cases that stump us. Each hour session will use the power of inquiry to unpack a case that one coach finds to be particularly tricky for them. "Tricky" means that it is a coaching case or situation that sticks with them in some way, there is something about it that either triggers the coach, rubs them the wrong way, or for some reason, keeps coming back to mind as a challenge and, of course, opportunity.
