A Systemic Approach to Building Coaching Cultures

Session Summary:

Many attempts to build coaching cultures are based on traditional approaches towards change, but most of these attempts fail. In this session, Paul will share new insights and approaches to building cultures based on more contemporary theories of change and organizations-as-systems. Paul will include a smattering of theory together with practical suggestions and ideas for the hands-on practitioner. ‌
