Coaching Special Interest Group
Share |

The Coaching Special Interest Group is for internal and external executive coaches, talent and leadership development professionals, those responsible for coaching within their organization and individuals who are new to coaching.  We have thought-provoking, interactive programs that support an evidence base for coaching and our presenters offer the latest cutting edge research, theory and practice.


We are organized around one simple idea:  when we get together and do the things that matter to us, we’re at our best.  And, that’s what the Coaching Special Interest Group does.  We bring like-minded individuals together to explore, share, learn, mentor, and support each other – all in the pursuit of bringing our best selves to our clients. 


 Come prepared to learn, share your knowledge, and meet new people.
