Every year for the past 3 we have been doing an annual review of the coaching literature to get a glimpse of where the profession is heading. In 2016 there were 460 coaching articles written in peer-reviewed coaching journals and 110 Dissertations on coaching produced by students pursuing a Ph.D that had the words ‘Coaching’ or ‘Coach’ in the title. Most of these deal with sports, health, or education. Only about 25% of the articles and 15% of the dissertations deal with organizational or life coaching. You probably didn’t have the time to read all these articles and dissertations.....but we did (or at least the 60% that in interested us the most). By reading the articles published each year you can get an idea of where the profession is heading, what’s ‘hot’ and what’s ‘not’, and what some of the key research findings were for that year. If this interests you please join us for an evening of very valuable information about our profession. Those who attend will be given access to an annotated bibliography of the 60 articles and the 10 dissertations that we read.

Hermann Ditzig

Hermann is the current President of the Singapore Chapter and founder of the Research Committee. He has graduate education in Medical Sociology, Clinical and Social Psychology, Organizational Design, Organizational Development, and Leadership. He started his career as a psychiatric epidemiologist doing research on what made people crazy. A five year research project for the US government on how work influences a person’s well-being showed the impact that leadership has, and that bad bosses can actually ‘drive you crazy’. In addition to being a researcher, he was a psychotherapist and university level educator in Medical and Business Schools. Since moving to Singapore (1984), Hermann has worked as an OD and HRD professional for the National Productivity Board, the Singapore Institute of Management, and as a partner in a British consulting firm leading their Management Development practice in Asia. He has been an Executive and Leadership coach for 16 years and started his own Coaching and Leadership firm in 2003.

Costantino Gonnella

Costa was one of the first exchange students from Italy at Beijing University in the late 70s where he researched for two years before returing home to receive a Master with summa cum laude in Chinese literature and history from the Oriental Insitute (IUO) of Naples. His understanding of Chinese culture provided a great advantage when soon after he went back to China to become a businessman and local representative of Fiat, the largesst Italian private conglomerate. Years later he started his own company pioneering many new trades and assisting diverse business initiatives between China and Europe. Fluent in four languages and getting by in two or three more, in the last 30 plus years he lived in Beijing, Hong Kong, Macao, Thailand and Singapore. His humanistic interests never succumbed to a "business only" attitude and found him with an open mind when in recent years he discovered coaching. Now an ACC, with an incessant passion for learning, he believes that his experience with many business realities and a perspective from different cultural approaches can allow him to offer a valuable contribution as a corporate and life coach.

Gopal Kaushik

Kaushik looks after the coaching practice for the Center for Creative Leadership in Asia Pacific (South East Asia, South Asia and Australia). He is responsible for the ‘internal’ certification, quality and development of all coaches (for all CCL programs including Leadership at the Peak).

We live in ever more globalized working environments. The evolution of International Relations increasingly affect us, citizens, companies, organizations and, of course, countries.

The fast pace of globalization has impacted many and we are facing a backlash in the form of various types of protectionist movements in the world (from Brexit, the new Trump Administration to nationalism in EU Member States to cite some examples). Is protectionism really the solution? Are there any alternatives? Can Coaching be of any help to better manage globalization and its implications?

Pilar Mendez

Pilar Méndez transformed her passion for learning foreign languages and cultures in her profession: after graduating as a lawyer by ICADE University Pontificia de Comillas (Madrid) in 2000 she became a Career Diplomat of the Foreign Service of Spain and later on Expert in Executive Coaching by the Business School of the University of Deusto. She is co-author of the motivational book “From.

Affection to Zee: The hand guide for a journey to your wellbeing” (2014). After her early travels throughout Western and Eastern Europe, as a diplomat she jumped further into other ways of interpreting the world which countries as diverse as Haiti, Japan, the US or now Singapore have offered her. With 17 years of working experience in international environments and managing international teams, she acquired high exposure to globalisation from it very early days. She will talk to us about how through her professional path she has come to believe that Coaching and, more specifically, Diplomacy Coaching, the intersection area where International Relations meet Coaching, could play an important role in managing globalisation and its current implications in the world. Join us for an evening of international personal experiences where Coaching tools made the difference for leading international teams or solving international crisis.

Cognitive Effectiveness and Coaching

Cognitive effectiveness clarifies goals, examines assumptions, discerns hidden values, evaluates evidences, accomplishes actions, and assesses conclusions. More than ever, we must be able to clearly reason through problems and to present arguments in a logical, compelling way or even to reasonably challenge “standard operating procedure” or workflow processes. As adaptability, flexibility and resilience become an emerging skill for success in the modern business world, cognitive effectiveness becomes even more important for leadership and coaching. Managing our mindsets within dynamic conditions and learning to adapt as outside influences continue to transform seemingly static situations into complex environments.

In this session Raymond Thomas will step you through.

1) Components and key structure of cognitive effectiveness.

2) Cognitive and reasoning model.

3) Applying cognitive effectiveness in coaching.
