3rd International Executive Coaching Symposium

Coaching for Connections

3rd International Executive Coaching Symposium

On November 8, 2018, IESE’s Barcelona campus will welcome guests for the third Executive Coaching Symposium, organized by the IESE Executive Coaching Unit. Under the theme “Coaching for Connections¨

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Jonathan Passmore, Director of the Centre for Coaching & Behavioral Change at Henley Business School who will focus on ‘Coaching For and With Compassion’.

This will be supported by a session on ¨ Creating cross-cultural connection: A framework of cultural bridging and identities¨ by Professor YIh-teen Lee, Profesor of IESE Business School and followed by an expert panel of CEOs, human resource directors and senior-level managers from a broad range of sectors.

Guest speakers will share their frontline insights and experiences with executive coaching and its pivotal role in helping managers develop approaches to establish great connectivity in the work place.

Under the theme “Coaching for Connections”, the Symposium will explore:

  • Links between connections and business performance
  • How to create the deep connections that underpin performance
  • A variety of areas where these connections can be leveraged, including direct teams, peers, and internal and external stakeholders

Guest speakers will share their frontline insights and experiences on executive coaching and its pivotal role in helping managers develop approaches to establish good connectivity in the work place.

The Symposium reflects one of the Executive Coaching Unit’s  objectives, namely, to apply conceptual frameworks using highly practical methodologies. The gathering — which aims to become an annual event  — will harness the collective knowledge of business leaders, scholars and coaches, and include in-depth analyses on the latest research and academic publications.

 

IESE Executive Coaching Unit

IESE has been delivering first-class executive coaching to managers for more than 10 years.

Led by Academic Director Professor Alberto Ribera, the coaching unit’s primary aim is to be a development tool that strengthens and complements the learning of executive education programs.

The different activities organized by the IESE Executive Coaching Unit are:

• Research on the foundations of executive coaching, the different assessment tools available, and the best methodologies in the context of a business school. The unit also studies the key factors that differentiate executive coaching from other learning methodologies (such as executive challenge, teamwork, and mentoring).

• Workshops and meetings with other institutions. The coaching unit delivers a series of workshops and international meetings through close collaboration with other institutions, including the Institute of Coaching (Mc Lean Hospital, Harvard Medical School Affiliate).

• The publication of cases and technical notes. Over the last 10 years, IESE’s coaching unit has published more than 30 cases and technical notes related to executive coaching and assessment instruments.

• Management and coordination of coaching activities within IESE programs. These coaching activities include individual processes, team coaching, and assessments.
