Roundtable Summary:

Topic: The Importance of Coaching in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous World  

The spread of COVID-19 has dramatically changed our lives. The world needs coaching now more than ever. Whatever our roles are, we need need to be deliberate and purposeful in our connections. As the world continues to rapidly evolve, we are being called to demonstrate our leadership, and use all of our strengths and skills to help our organizations navigate through this crisis.

While the current situation has certainly intensified the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity of our world, these characteristics were already very much at play and coaching skills and approaches can help us all navigate this world.

Join this session with Michelle Robindell to discuss:

• VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) and VUCA Prime (an antidote to VUCA);
• How coaching approaches and skills, such as the following, help organizations navigate our dramatically evolving world;
  * Cultivating trust and safety;
  * Maintaining presence;
  * Listening actively;
  * Evoking awareness;
  * Facilitating client growth;
• What we can do individually and collectively to best support those around us during - and beyond - this difficult time.
