Integrating Technology Into Coaching SIG

Leader: Vanya Koonce
Guest Speaker: David Clutterbuck

Date: Tuesday, June 26th
Time: 12:00 - 1:30 PM Pacific

Location: Virtual meeting via Zoom.us / Your link to join the conference will be sent after you register.

While so much of the hype about AI and its threat to jobs is just hype, coaching is far from immune to the changes already happening. Some of the more advanced Coachbots can already do basic, GROW model coaching at least as well as a human - and the same would apply to any predictable, follow the model conversational activity. Over the next few years, as AI algorithms learn from tens of thousands of coaching conversations, they will become even more accomplished.

For those coaches, who are able to encompass and engage with these developments, the future lies in Coach-AI Partnerships. In this provoking webinar, David Clutterbuck will explore what coaches can bring to the coaching relationship that ensures they still have a valuable role and what this means for how we develop our knowledge, skills and practice.

David Clutterbuck is one of the earliest pioneers of coaching and developmental mentoring. Author or co-author of some 70 books, he co-founded what is now the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, the oldest professional body in the field. He is visiting professor in the coaching and mentoring faculties of four universities - Henley, Oxford Brookes, Sheffield Hallam and York St John - and EMCC special ambassador. He leads a global community of coaching and mentoring researcher-trainers, Coaching and Mentoring International. Among his many current projects is one to create five million school age coaches and mentors.

About your host:

With an extensive education and background in psychology, human resources, personal growth, and entrepreneurship, Vanya Koonce draws on a wide range of coaching skills in her private practice, BeYourself.

Vanya is also the co-founder of an exciting new, interactive coaching app, AgilGoals, designed to provide business, executive, and personal development coaches a simple, innovative way to extend communication and offer their clients support outside of coaching sessions. Her excellent coaching reputation and development of the AgilGoals software app led Vanya to be invited by the “Jobs Vision Success SoCal” in Los Angeles to empower women as a mentor in their popular WoMentoring program.
