Coaching for Team-Based Leadership

7th Executive Coaching Symposium
November 17, 2022

IESE’s 7th Executive Coaching Symposium, organized by the school’s Executive Coaching Unit, will be held in-person on the Barcelona campus on November 17, 2022 and explore team-based leadership.

We know great teamwork produces great collaboration, great shared learnings and great results levering diverse points of view and capabilities. But can you achieve it in all teams in all circumstances, including when hybrid or remote working lies at the heart of the way we work?

Focusing on team-based leadership, the Symposium will explore the link between team effectiveness, leadership and coaching, including:

•    The leader’s role as key to creating fully integrated, effective teams
•    The use of diversity in all its forms – function, opinions, personality, gender – to enable impactful change in the short, medium and long term
•    Coaching as part of the team leader’s essential portfolio of competencies

We look forward to sharing a great day with key-note speakers, special guests and, of course, yourself, bringing your own experience along with that of many other business leaders to enrich the conversation and outcomes.

Please mark November 17, 2022 in your calendars now!
