Learning about the field of Adult Development has changed and expanded Joyce’s preconceptions of how to develop leaders.  Her approach combines traditional skills and competencies to include a leader’s shift in mindset, not just behavior, and the ability to take multiple perspectives that are critical for effective leadership in a fast and unpredictable world.

Adding to her strong coaching experience, Joyce has had broad and varied experiences including: leading company wide change programs; facilitating culture and values workshops; team and group coaching; and designing and delivering executive leadership programs.

She is a former Board Member and Membership Chair of the New York Human Resources People and Strategy, and Past President and Program Chair, New York Chapter, Association for Psychological Type (MBTI).

Upcoming Coaching SIG Events

 

Coaching Workshop: Introduction to Evidence-Based CoachingOpen in a New Window


Why Evidence-Based Coaching? 

Over the last two decades the use of coaching as a means of enhancing performance and development in organizations has increased substantially.

This event qualifies for 6 CCE points.


 

This trend shows no sign of slowing down. At the same time there has been exponential growth in the amount of coaching research, and increased interest in the development of evidence-based approaches to coaching. Despite this, there is still a lack of clarity about what constitutes evidence-based coaching.

The term ‘evidence-based’ refers to: “The intelligent and conscientious use of relevant and best current knowledge, integrated with professional practitioner expertise in making decisions about how to deliver coaching to coaching clients and in designing and delivering coach training programs” - Grant, 2016

Using the best available evidence from research, theory and practice, this unique workshop will explore the fundamentals of coaching, including the core theories and techniques of evidence-based coaching used to facilitate individual and cultural change. The workshop covers both the “how” of coaching (how to coach) and the “why” of coaching (why it works) – it is results focused, interactive and highly experiential.

 

What will you get from this full-day workshop?

Participants will:

  • Understand the nature of evidence-based practice as it relates to coaching;
  • Explore the research in the field of coaching, including the latest research on motivation and the “coaching ripple effect”;
  • Be provided with an overview of a wide range of theoretical perspectives and approaches to coaching;
  • Learn and practice the core micro skills of solution focused coaching;
  • Observe live coaching demonstrations and engage in co-coaching practice; and 
    Receive individual feedback to enhance effective coaching skills and techniques.

 

Who should attend?

This program is designed for:

  • HR, L&D, OD and Talent professionals who want to learn the fundamentals of coaching theory and practice;
  • Those responsible for coaching and coaching programs within their organization;
  • Those new to coaching or those who wish to explore coaching as a future career;
  • Practicing coaches who want to update their skills to include Evidence Based Practice; and
  • Mid to senior level managers who want to learn to coach their reports and teams more effectively.

 

Agenda

9:00 AM – 12:30 PM  |  MORNING SESSION

  • Introduction to Evidence Based Coaching
  • Overview of Coaching Research
  • Outline of Theoretical Perspectives
  • Micro skills of Solution Focused Coaching and coaching practice

Joint Event with ICF NYC - Positive Psychology Coaching: Navigating Professional & Personal SuccessOpen in a New Window


Join us for an insightful, interactive session facilitated by Clive Leach, in which he will provide an engaging introduction to the application of Positive Psychology Coaching in the workplace. Drawing upon the very latest global research and his own extensive international experience as an organizational coach, working within the corporate, government and education sectors, participants will:

1)    Be provided with an overview of latest global research on the application and integration of Positive Psychology into coaching practice and the workplace.
2)    Learn a selection of practical evidence-based coaching tools and tips that coaches can apply to enhance the well-being and performance of themselves and their clients.
3)    Understand how Positive Psychology Coaching can be used to support the client relationship, coach performance and coaching outcomes.

In the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world we all live in today, investing in well-being is essential for sustaining the resilience and mental toughness required to navigate life and achieve both professional and personal success. The reality is that when asked how they are most people answer “OK”. The truth is that many are neither feeling good or functioning well. Research suggests that:

•    Stress is one of the biggest causes of absenteeism at a cost of $billions annually
•    At any one time only 30% of the workforce are likely to be truly engaged
•    Retaining talent is an increasing challenge and impacts on the bottom line Positive Psychology has been described as the 'science of what makes life worth living'.

The evidence is building that its application results in less anxiety and stress, coupled with increased levels of hope and resilience. This in turn, contributes directly to greater well-being, physical health, life satisfaction and performance in work, study and life.

Positive Psychology is increasingly being used by executive coaches, L&D professionals and business leaders, in order to help organizations reap tangible benefits, relating to profitability, productivity, customer loyalty and satisfaction.
