8/10/2015 – How Corporations Source and Screen Executive Coaches

War Stories from the Trenches
with Brian Underhill

How do major corporations find and screen executive coaches?

What criteria do executives most want in a coach?

Brian O. Underhill, Ph.D., founder of the world’s largest executive coaching organization CoachSource, has spent 18 years screening coaches worldwide and has the scars to prove it! Hear the “behind the scenes” stories from building a pool of over 1000 coaches in 44 countries to serve multi-national corporations’ executive coaching requests – and see the results of his industry-leading research on the topic. Brian has personally traveled to all continents meeting coaches worldwide, in building and managing coaching pools for brands such as Dell, Microsoft and American Express.

This session is clearly directly related to the “business” theme of the conference. As a major provider of coaches worldwide, it is critical for our field that coaches present themselves in a way that builds credibility for our profession. Unfortunately, after screening 1000+ coaches over 18 years, far too many coaches still fall short of the mark that corporations are looking for. I’d like to see more coaches successfully exceed that mark – it is only good for hiring companies, coaching firms like my own, and for the coaches themselves. I’d like to help coaches see what it takes to win more executive coaching assignments through this session.

  1. Learn what corporations and executives look for in coaches and where they are going to find them.
  2. Learn how to build your organizations’ pool of executive coaches into the best available.
  3. Learn how to distinguish yourself as a coach to be more appealing to multi-national corporate coaching programs.

This presentation is mainly a lecture. However, at the end of the presentation, there will be an interactive Q&A session. Also, Dr. Underhill usually like to give away 2-3 of his books, often to those who can answer key trivia questions related to the presentation.

7/13/2015 – Whole Brain Thinking – How Many Does it Take?

Speaker: Carl Wellenstein

Carl Wellenstein

Teams where everyone thinks alike and get along with each other may consistently make the same mistakes. Teams where all participants don’t think alike too often cannot agree to anything due to the dysfunctional dynamics within the group.

Carl will describe techniques that will help attendees understand their unique thinking style and describe ways to recognize the different thinking styles in others. Using the Herrmann Brain Dominance Theory concepts and processes, attendees will be able to understand the basic four different thinking styles and be better able to recognize signs that suggest patterns in others that identify their individual thinking styles. The HBDI® instrument is used by many large international companies to help their teams work together more effectively and help their sales organizations to quickly adapt their thinking to the thinking preferences of customers.

Attendees will learn :

  • A simple visual template they can use to remind them of their preferred thinking style and how to recognize the signs of a different thinking style in others.
  • How the strengths of each person’s unique thinking preferences can positively affect their interaction with others and recognize the potential dark side of their style.
  • Techniques they can use with their clients to help them improve their communication skills.
