Coaching with Compassion

Inspiring Sustained, Desired Change

Featuring Richard Boyatzis

Announcing the July installment of ILA’s 2011 Leadership Perspectives webinar series
Monday, July 25, 2011 | 12:00 – 1:00 PM EDT
Registration is free for ILA members and only $24.95 for non-members

Great leaders move us to greatness and inspire us to be at our best and move beyond it. Although they talk of strategy and competition, great leaders establish a deep emotional connection with others called resonance. These resonant relationships are key to effective leader-follower relationships and engender experiences of mindfulness, hope, compassion, and playfulness which are essential to the renewal of the human organism at the neurological, hormonal, emotional, and behavioral levels.

Based on decades of research into emotional intelligence competencies and longitudinal studies in their development, Professor Richard Boyatzis will lead the audience through examples of how coaching with compassion is key to leadership development and more resonant relationships.

Four participants will win a copy of the book on which this webinar is based.

Date: Monday, July 25, 2011
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 PM EDT

The Challenge of Change: Overcoming Resistance & Obtaining Results

Featuring Katherine Tyler Scott

“Ninety percent of the challenges leaders face are adaptive; ninety percent of the training they receive is technical.”
– Dan Ciampa

In researching why change is so challenging and why most change initiatives fail, the firm Ki ThoughtBridge has discovered a huge chasm between the reality of change and the perception of change. The result is that the ways in which we prepare leaders to respond to change and to help lead others through change is woefully inadequate. Change is never easy, but it is impossible without the right kind of leadership.

This webinar will provide participants with resources offering a clear understanding of the three phases of change and the impact on individuals and systems. A framework that integrates both and provides the specific strategies necessary for leaders to navigate through the complexity and challenges of change will be described.

Katherine Tyler Scott is the managing partner of Ki ThoughtBridge, a consulting firm which specializes in organizational assessment, executive coaching, leadership development, conflict resolution, and change management. With more than 30 years of experience in leadership education and development, she is the founder and former president of Trustee Leadership Development, Inc, and a board member of the International Leadership Association, where she also serves as Chair of the Board Development Committee. Katherine is the 1988 recipient of the Sagamore of the Wabash, the highest honor the governor of Indiana can bestow on a citizen.
