Spring is springing…and it’s about time..

We have some exciting news. On May 18th at Noon EST, we are delivering an hour long, free webinar that will walk through my most current thinking and business case for building a High Performance, Feedback-Rich Coaching Culture. We will distinguish between a “coached” and a “coaching” culture, and why this parsing makes a huge difference. Coaching cultures are present when leaders and teams are able to embrace the essential communication skills of coaching, and be ready, willing and able to share feedback and coaching in ALL directions – UP, DOWN, and SIDEWAYS. Participants will be able to ask questions, and of course, receive the slides after the session. Here is the link for registration:

The Facilitator Certification that is being held during the week of July 20th in San Diego still has a few open seats. It is purposefully designed to be an intimate learning group setting limited to approximately 12 participants in order to optimize the hands-on learning and deep grounding. Here is the link for registration.

Our latest blog, “The Art of Leadership and Riding a Bicycle” is posted on the BLOG area of our website. It shows the clear parallels between each practice, and how closely the metaphor of bicycle riding fits leading teams. Enjoy it.

We are speaking at the Vancouver, Canada International Coaching Federation meeting this coming week. This annual conference is themed “How Coaches and Consultants Help Create Coaching Cultures for their Clients”. I am happy to be part of what will be a powerful conversation. ICF Coaching Culture

We are thrilled to announce an online version of The Heart of Coaching that will be released early this summer. Soon you can learn the basic principles of The Heart of Coaching in the comfort of your own office or home through this new virtual experience. It will be designed to be light in theory and heavy in application, so you can use what you learned as soon as you’re back on the job. Our next newsletter will confirm the details — please watch this space for more information!

I hope you are able to make the webinar, if not pass along the link to your team…

In the spirit of coaching...Tom
