Approved for 1.5 ICF Core Competency CCE Units

Dr. Marshall Goldsmith is a world authority in helping successful leaders achieve positive, lasting change in behavior: for themselves, their people and their teams.  In this fast-paced, interactive keynote particpants will learn why the most important factor in coaching is not the coach – it is the person being coached.  Everyone will practice and be ready to use feedforward – a positive process for learning that has been successfully implemented around the world.  Marshall will then share the essence of his leadership development and coaching process that is backed by research involving over 86,000 respondents.

Closing Keynote

Triggers:  Creating Behavior that Lasts – Becoming the Person You Want to Be

Approved for 1.5 ICF Core Competency CCE Units

As we journey through life we all have grand plans for becoming the person we want to be.  What happens?  Why don’t we become this person?  In this dynamic keynote, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith will share the common delusions that hold us back.  He will discuss triggers – any stimulus that may impact our behavior – and how triggers impact our lives.  Participants will learn how to use simple structure and direction to create lasting change in behavior – with the example of Alan Mulally, who led the dramatic turnaround at Ford.  Marshall will share a model for analzing the future that can be used in life planning, coaching and even organizational analysis.  Finally, Dr. Goldsmith will show how daily questions – and especially active questions – can help people increase effectiveness and build engagement.
