Coaching Beyond the New Reality for Systemic Change

Keynote speaker, Saima Butt, MCC

As we ask powerful questions, the imagined becomes compelling and with human will, the compelling becomes possible. It is at this intersection that we see social impact of coaching is amplified in clients, companies, and communities.

This keynote reflects on the passion and commitment of our coaching community to make an impact on the people around us. It explores our purpose, serving as coaches, and brings more clarity to how we can each individually contribute to evoke change for the greater good.

 19:00 – 19:50

Coaching Beyond The Story

Keynote speaker, Dr Marcia Reynolds, MCC

Albert Einstein said, “Reality is an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” In order to go about our days, we hold onto the stories that define who we think we are and how the world operates. We then rationalize our decisions and actions based on our stories to maintain a level of confidence.

This session will show you how to transform the minds and hearts of your clients by coaching them to see and grow beyond their stories.

 19:50 – 20:00  Closing
