Keynote: Future Proof: the coaching skills you’ll need beyond 2023
Coaches, mentors, and educators will be needed more than ever within the next decade. Business leaders are retiring later, because shareholders and boards of directors are becoming more risk averse. The global financial crisis of 2008, the energy industry challenges of 2015-2020, and the global pandemic are to blame. To make matters worse, 75% of the workforce will be Millennials or Gen Z within 10 years, and Gen Xers and Baby Boomers don’t trust them. They don’t view the world the same way, and they have very different views on reward orientation, work/life balance, and working in teams. Leaders of tomorrow will need to climb steeper mountains, faster, with fewer resources.
Coaches of tomorrow will need to create safe spaces, create alignment with more diverse audiences, and support and challenge the pace of expectations in an ever more competitive business, educational, and political landscape. Based on the most recent research, and culled from some of the greatest thought leaders in leadership and coaching today – this session cannot be missed for any leader, coach, mentor, facilitator, supervisor or educator! Walk away with skills, tools, and techniques you can implement the very next hour, and perspective that will shape the next decade of your career!
