Workshop Overview

Regardless of industry and across the globe, organizational teams are the primary mechanism by which ideas are birthed and recombined into innovations for maintaining or achieving competitive advantage. We know that resources of people, time and funding impact team effectiveness in innovating. We also know that factors such as individual traits of talent, expertise, and collaboration skills also matter greatly. Less understood is the role of innovation team leaders in fostering environments in which teams can successfully innovate for competitive advantage.

Suzanne is an OD practitioner who has conducted recent research seeking to better understand the dynamics of innovation teams. She will share her research examining 145 innovation teams and kick off a discussion exploring team innovation capacity and the unique ecosystems such teams represent within established organizations.

OD practitioners will have the opportunity in this session to build/extend their understanding of the unique dynamics specific to innovation teams. They will explore factors present on teams that successfully innovate and discuss findings related to high performing innovation team leadership competencies that are oft ignored or overlooked.

Learning and Performance through Peer Coaching

By: Philip LeNir, President CoachingOurselves

 

  • When: Friday, March 13, 2015 from 8:30 am to 11:30 am (8:30 am to 9:00 am – networking; 9:00 am to 11:30 am – meeting)
  • Where: Canisius Center for Professional Development 300 Corporate Parkway, Suite 130, Amherst, NY 14226

Meeting Overview:

It’s well understood in the field of learning and development that 70% of learning is informal, on the job, and experience based; 20% is coaching and mentoring; and 10% is comprised of formal learning interventions and structured courses. But what does this mean in practice?

This session will showcase a peer coaching leadership development methodology that builds community, stimulates exchange of perspectives, and encourages team cohesion. It is an innovative adaptation of the 70/20/10 approach to leadership development and organizational transformation. The use of this peer coaching methodology uses practical tools to explore a wide range of topics.

These tools were created by more than forty leading management thinkers including Henry Mintzberg, Marshall Goldsmith, David Cooperrider, and Michael Beers.

Meeting Objectives:

  1. Learn about the application of social and informal learning (70/20/10) for management and organizational development, and gain insight into leveraging the framework in your organization.
  2. Learn about the impact of using the methodology developed by Henry Mintzberg of CoachingOurselves through review of select case studies and a hands-on workshop.
  3. Understand the lessons learned when developing and deploying peer coaching solutions.

Meeting Overview:

The term coaching can mean different things in different contexts. In this meeting, we’ll discuss coaching as a development tool whereby a coach helps a leader move from their current state to a desired state. In this context, coaching follows a different model than training, mentoring, or giving feedback.

Alan’s presentation will be largely based on material from his recently published book “Executive Coaching and the Process of Change: A Practitioner’s Guide”. He will share some of his reasons for writing the book as well as insights into effective executive coaching including:

  • What is executive coaching and why is it important?
  • What are the attributes of an effective executive coach?
  • What specific methods can coaches use to help their clients change their behaviors?
  • What is a “personal balance sheet” and how is it used in the coaching process?
