How agile coaching is more efficient

SOLID Soft Skills


LEVEL: Intermediate

The Role of Global Agility Coaching (GAC) in a VUCA* World

The speed of change and interactivity of today´s world drive people and organizations to their limits. But what are the human factors which may hinder or facilitate finding their full potential and purposes in a VUCA world? 

From a coaching perspective (and according to the International Coaching Federation ICF), both HR professional and global leaders must be clear about what exactly needs to be developed; what is internal and what is external to the individual. On the one hand, organizations must provide with conditions for development to happen; on the other hand, individuals must know how to lead and succeed in a multicultural environment.

Our discussion will focus on:

1. deconstructing some global leadership development terms often misused.

2. understanding the psychological impact of VUCA (or VUCASIP) on how people think and behave in organizations, and their needs in order to thrive and not just survive, the Inner Global Agility Capacities.

3. discuss the role of coaching, as a response (or solution) available to develop global leaders.
