    Topic:   The new International Coaching Federation Strategic Plan aims “to support the growth of organizational coaching cultures.” We will explore what a coaching culture is and its value to people, performance, organization effectiveness and overall business success; present a model for building a culture and discuss a case study of an organization that has successfully implemented it.

    In this presentation, we will explore what defines a coaching culture. We will enumerate and discuss the value and benefits on people, performance, organization effectiveness and overall business success. We will present a structured model designed to build a sustainable coaching culture in three systematic steps - employing individual and team coaching, training and facilitated peer-coaching circles. We will close by showcasing a case study with a mid-size Oil and Gas company that has successfully implemented this model.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand key components of a successful coaching culture and learn how it looks in practice.
    • Create a strategy for building a coaching culture in their organization based on a specific three phase model designed to accomplish this goal.
    • Realize the practical feasibility of building a sustainable coaching culture by exploring the case of an organization that has successfully implemented this model.

    Topic:   Studies have shown organizations that deliver on training and development objectives experience significant revenue growth and employee satisfaction. Meanwhile, shortcomings in training and development processes have an equally negative impact on the organization in terms of engagement and higher costs of poor employee performance and turnover.

    Lee Webster – Secretary for ISO Technical Committee 260 for Human Resource Management – will explain how adopting the value chain approach to the training and development processes not only results in more efficient and effective practices that save money, but also have a positive impact on the employee experience and enhances your organization’s employer brand.

    • Little Bigs, 4621 Montrose Houston, TX 77006

    Note:  Location change!

    With all due respect to the book “Good to Great,” I believe we should not look at our team members as passengers on a bus to be taken for a ride. Create a culture and place them so they can grow and flourish: It is a natural desire to grow, flourish and produce. (This brief e-doc explains the concepts used as a presentation topic, workshop or program: http://www.dionmcinnis.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Grow_Teams_by_Dion_McInnis1.pdf)

    Learner Objectives

    1. Review the entire employee experience, beginning with the job posting, that allows for growth and flourishing. Change the holistic view of what it means to join your team, and of your organizational culture vis a vis growth and flourishing.

    2. Review and re-think how promotions, transfers, office layouts and committee assignments (to name a few) affect the ability for team members to succeed and produce. Make decisions that encourage success in those areas.

    3. Examine the differences between the different roles and what each is expected to "produce," e.g.,immediate harvest or seeds for the future.

    4. Learn day-to-day actions and processes that promote individual and organizational growth.

    ATD Competency Model - Area of Expertise This Session Supports:  Performance Improvement,  Learning Technologies, Managing Learning Programs,  Integrated Talent Management, Coaching, Knowledge Management, Change Management

    Speaker:   Dion McInnis served in leadership positions in university advancement for four universities over nearly three decades. He has developed many unique, successful approaches to team development, management, fundraising, external relations, facilitation and sales. He now serves as consultant and coach. His programs, as well as his writing and photography, are based on three steps: see differently, change perspectives, and grow authentically.

    While in higher education, he raised millions of dollars, engaged thousands of members, empowered hundreds of volunteers, facilitated scores of committees, and orchestrated dozens of events…all of them, one friend at a time. He brings to nonprofit organizations the lessons learned in those experiences in meaningful, easily understood ways; he brings to individuals the empowerment to find and utilize their creativity in any situation.

    Dion finds wisdom in everyday stories and uses them to guide, inspire, teach and engage. For example, he has used for years the story of an interaction with a shoeshine man to teach sales and fundraising; stories about homeless and beggars to provide insights into marketing and messaging; and, childhood stories involving several of his friends to teach leadership principles. He also offers free “Make It Happen Monday” sessions for nonprofit leaders and fundraisers to help improve nonprofits’ success and ability to serve the community.

    He has authored more than 10 books, including “Daddin’: The Verb of Being a Dad,” “Listen to Life: Wisdom in Life’s Stories,” and “The Seeing, Not the Taking: A Guide to Seeing for Photographers.”
