Using AI In Executive Coaching
We’ll dive into the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its applications for corporate executive coaching as you build a client relationship built on being an enterprise-wide business partner.
Coaching Principals for Third World Countries
By serving the extreme poor in Myanmar, led to a cutting-edge movement in community-led development and powerful insights and expertise about global poverty. The Shanta Foundation, an international NGO headquartered in Durango, CO, has a unique approach to community mobilization, leadership development, and community banking that would actually work, facilitating more than 35 villages to find paths out of extreme poverty, even in under the terror of the military dictatorship. As coaches—you get the potential inherent in the leaders you work with and how, with a little support and insight, most can become an even greater force for the good in their worlds. But for some reason, most development approaches have yet to translate that dynamic to unlocking solutions to extreme poverty. We are still bringing our colonialist, racist, sexist biases to this work, and despite incredibly sincere and expensive initiatives, we often end up either enabling or simply not helping those we aim to serve. We will discuss Shanta’s approach to the work because it is tightly aligned with the principles of the work that we do every day as coaches and consultants. And because it works—bringing about sustainable and outrageously uncommon results.
Tune In To Lead
We know that listening is a critically important leadership skill. This means listening effectively to others to build alignment, engagement and accountability. But equally if not more important is listening to our deeper selves to ensure motivation, high performance, and fulfillment.
Most of us don’t do either kind of listening very well, or very frequently. And that’s because true listening is hard to master; it’s fundamentally about being present, tuning in, and connecting to our personal purpose. How can we do that in an overstimulating world that’s becoming even more demanding?
This is a conversation about the benefits of and barriers to deep listening, and how we can do better for ourselves and our clients. A variety of strategies will be discussed. One specific innovative, yet traditional, experiential approach will be included in the conversation, namely engaging with horses- it may not be what you think!

Coaching for Respect
Description: The research is clear – our organizations are experiencing unprecedented levels of disrespect, which are negatively impacting performance, partnership, retention, and productivity. Fortunately, it’s possible to coach employees – who have ‘fallen our of respect’ for each other – back into productive relationships. Gregg Ward MCEC outlines his 10-step Coaching for RespectTM Process which Marshall Goldsmith calls, “A powerful process that restores respect and gets folks back to working well together again.”
Gregg Ward, MCEC is the Founder/Executive Director of the Center for Respectful Leadership, the developer of the Coaching for RespectTM Process, and the author of the bestselling, award-winning business fable, The Respectful Leader and the follow-on companion book, Restoring Respect.
Dr. Daher’s presentation on “Reimagining Leadership” covers four areas for enhancing leadership and organizational effectiveness:
How to Effectively Select and Use Assessments
Assessments and instruments are vital for any coach’s toolbox; however, there are so many options and applications that choosing and using the right assessment is confusing and daunting. In this presentation, we will explore an integral approach to the landscape of instruments and demystify the process of selecting the right tools for specific applications in individual, group, team, and organizational coaching.
Making Coaching Fun
We’ll explore where the “fun” in coaching lies. Beyond the fulfillment, monetary and psychic income we derive from doing what we do, we’ll look at what makes it fun for us and those we coach.
Fun can be defined in so many ways — light-hearted pleasure, enjoyment, amusement, boisterous joviality, merrymaking entertainment — there’s probably a great deal more of it in our work than we may realize. So we’ll identify where it is and what it looks like — please be prepared to share your own personal stories of where you find fun in your work — how do we know when we experience it, what can we make of it, and what benefits do we and those we coach derive from adding more of it to the mix.
How Leaders Get Stuck
A discovery of what kind of leader your clients want to become and the ways they limit themselves from getting there. As leaders, we tend to make our decisions the same way every time. When we are in distress, we tend to get stuck in the same quicksand for our teams and our organizations. When leaders become frozen, the consequences to the organization, staff, productivity, profits, and workflows can be devastating. When leaders are stymied, choices for escaping the situation can be skewed and narrow, and solutions may seem non-existent.
As a pioneer in the art and science of alignment, Edgar Papke is globally recognized for his work as an author, international award-winning speaker, podcast host, and master executive coach. His True Alignment presentation draws from his bestselling books True Alignment and Innovation By Design, as well as his over 30 years of experience helping leaders and organizations align and grow to achieve greater levels of success.
In exploring the elements of the TA system, practitioners will be provided a framework and insight into human-centered approaches to the alignment of customer experience, brand, culture, and leadership influence. Furthermore, participants will connect with their purpose and gain insight into their own unique approach to their professional pursuits.

But how do you Discover your WHY? How do you help your clients Discover their WHY? As a coach, finding it can be a long and sometimes frustrating process that can take multiple sessions to uncover, and even then, you can’t be sure if you got it right.
What if there was a way to help your clients Discover not just their WHY, but their WHY operating system? Their WHY, their HOW, and their WHAT. WHY you do what you do. HOW you bring your WHY to life. And WHAT people can count on from you. During this short session, we will show you exactly how to do that.

Ditch the ROI conversation and shift to Business Value

It’s an impossible feat, given we are dealing with humans and complex systems working together to create better leadership.

Enhancing Human Coaching Through Artificial Intelligence
