Narratives of Practice: Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging in Coaching

What are the narratives that influence your practice? How is your narrative and practice changing in response to the diversity that you encounter? Executive coaching is a global practice that is growing across geographical, cultural, social, political, and socio-economic borders. As practitioners, we have an opportunity to look more deeply at our practice and ask ourselves broader questions. Where do our frames of practice arise? How is diversity present or excluded in our practice and research? What are we noticing or learning from the diversity we encounter in clients, teams and systems? What is the impact of diversity on the dynamics of the coaching relationship or presence of the coach? This session will explore our diversity experiences, individual and collective learning, and the potential implications for coaching practice and research.

Learning Outcome:

1. Share experiences around diversity and learn from the experience of others;

2. Reflect upon the impact of diversity on the dynamics of the coaching relationship, and presence of the coach; and

3. Consider how diversity generates or challenges professional development.

Conscious and non-conscious meaning-making: How to use neuroscience and psychology in your work with clients 

We are excited to present the executive coach, owner of 15 different coaching credentials Saba Hasanie, PCC. Informed by her extensive professional experience, her doctoral studies in applied neuroscience and psychology, and a panel of global expert coaches from around the globe, Saba will take you on a journey of inquiry that may challenge, evoke and even shift your perspectives on a partnership with clients going forward.

Supporting our clients through sustainable behavior change is a noble goal in coaching, but often one that comes with blurred approaches on how to do this. In this talk, Saba will explore how areas of developmental psychology, applied neuroscience and psychotherapy can come together with the help coaches with a robust in-take process. This in-take process examines conscious and non- conscious meaning-making with clients, but also creates a lasting dynamic between the coach and client that can sustain significant transformation for both.

About the speaker - Saba Hasanie, PCC

Saba has spent two decades focusing on leadership development in North America, U.K., and Asia. A life- long learner, Saba has a BBA, MBA, 15 different coaching credentials and is currently pursuing her Doctoral studies. Saba works with organizations on Executive Coaching and leadership development where she undertakes a unique approach based on developmental psychology, psychotherapy and applied neuroscience that connects a scientific understanding of the brain with the psychological theory of behavioral change.

Saba works primarily with clients in Technology, FMCG, Financial Services, Energy, and Professional Services. Saba also writes and presents on many topics related to leadership and neuroscience including her most recent publication 'Coaching Supervision' published by Routledge (co-author).

A Permanent Resident of Singapore, Saba lives here with her husband and two daughters. Saba has been a friend of the ICF for several years and has also served as Vice-President of the ICF Singapore Chapter, sat on the Global Ethics Committee, and continues to serve on the Selection Panel.

Weaving culture into coaching for creativity, impact and unity

We are glad to present a world-wide known leadership coach who was the first MCC in Europe - Prof. Philippe Rosinski, MCC. 

Philippe is a world authority in executive coaching, team coaching and global leadership development.

Cultural differences of all kinds are often a source of misunderstandings and frustrations. In this workshop, Philippe Rosinski will show how coaches and leaders can improve their creativity and impact by treating cultural differences as a source of richness and as an opportunity to go beyond current cultural limitations.

You will learn about a broad, inclusive and dynamic concept of culture that contrasts with the traditional static and binary view (which tends to perpetuate limiting stereotypes).  You will also get to experience first hand how to navigate the cultural terrain. It facilitates the understanding of salient cultural characteristics for individuals, teams and organizations.

About the speaker - Prof. Philippe Rosinski, MCC 

Philippe helps leaders, teams and organizations deploy their multifaceted potential to achieve sustainable performance and meaningful success. 

The author of “Coaching Across Cultures” and “Global Coaching”, Philippe has pioneered a global approach to leadership and coaching that leverages multiple perspectives for greater creativity, impact, fulfilment and purpose. He has also developed an integrative coaching supervision approach.

Philippe is based in Belgium but enjoys working with clients and partners internationally. He is a professor at the Kenichi Ohmae Graduate School of Business in Tokyo and is regularly invited in other academic institutions. The first European to have been designated Master Certified Coach by the ICF, he holds a Master of Science degree from Stanford University.,, and
