Coaching is a powerful tool in change. Individual and team coaching builds the core competency of change by helping individuals articulate and make desired changes through a safe and trustworthy space.

In this episode with Theresa Moulton, Editor-in-Chief, and Sandra Stewart, MCC, MBA,  they discuss how coaching can move organizations forward during a change initiative by helping individuals develop new skills and perspectives, and by fostering a culture of learning and growth.

Thinking strategically about how to deploy individual and group coaching, as you are developing your change process and strategy, is a great way to partner with a coaching professional to catalyze and ensure sustainable change in organizations.

In this episode, Sandra shares her thoughts on:

  • The definition of coaching and the its different types
  • How coaching creates core competencies of change in the organization and its people.
  • Examples where coaching catalyzed change
  • The strategic approach and tools to align coaching to change
  • and much more!

“What is so often overlooked in making change is the very human factors that either catapult change or deter it. Coaching and coaching programs deployed strategically can create competencies of change in people and organizations that create insight, agility and innovation in the world of change.”

~Sandra L. Stewart
