You know the scenario. Executive believes he/she could be more effective at creating a better organisation/world by receiving coaching. He/she works with a coach and gets unblocked, enthused and energised. He/she grapples with his/her organisation with greater passion and enthusiasm. His/her organisation sees him/her as an even greater threat than before, and consequently ‘pushes back’ even harder. Executive gets frustrated, resigns, and retrains as an executive coach… Whilst this pattern has fuelled explosive growth in coaching training and certification bodies, it has largely failed to transform organisations into places where people are consistently inspired to contribute the very best of themselves.
Want to be part of the vanguard of change? The world-class ‘Coaching from a Systems Perspective’ (CSP) coaching skills development programme will take place in Covent Garden, London from Tuesday 15 November to Thursday 17 November 2011.
The US-based tutors, Jeff Clanon and Heidi Guber have both been at the forefront of the organisation learning movement for more than twenty years. Jeff was formerly Executive Director of Peter Senge’s Organizational Learning Center at MIT and Heidi is a Director on the Global Council of the Society for Organizational Learning (SoL). Both have many, many years of high-level real-world organisational experience as systemic change consultants and coaches. The CSP programme has already been run successfully in Europe, Asia and the USA, both as open enrolment and as an integral part of in-house executive development including within Microsoft HQ. This first UK programme is limited to 26 participants, and with 15 already confirmed the remaining places are now being offered on a first come, first served basis.
The CSP programme equips coaches/executives to tackle their challenges from a systems perspective, with greater insight and skill, leading to more effective outcomes.
Heidi and Jeff are kindly offering the first UK cadre an opportunity to participate in CSP at the vastly reduced cost of USD 1200 (approximately GBP 750) per person for the full three days including breakfast, lunch and refreshments but excluding accommodation and evening meals. This represents a saving of over 60% on the likely future cost of USD 3,200 (GBP 2,000) per person for subsequent UK programmes.
