In November of 2003 a group of seven executive coaches representing the United States, Canada and Europe participated in a panel session that was part of the educational track offered during the 8th ICF Annual Conference at The Adam’s Mark Hotel in Denver, Colorado. The objective of the panel was to provide an interactive learning and sharing environment for executive coaches who work with senior-level executives with fiduciary responsibility to multiple stakeholders.
The 150-minute panel session consisted of three distinct parts. The first segment involved the delivery of prepared questions by the moderator. The panelists responded with their viewpoints and typically shared methods and modus operandi that contributed to successful outcomes in real-world coaching. .
The second part of the panel event involved six group breakouts sorted by specific topics and facilitated by the six panelists. Topics included:
* Dynamic tension with the training and credentialing issue
* The distinctions of an excellent executive coach
* What is at stake for executives and their organizations who are being coached by people not meeting high standards of excellence
* How excellent executive coaches coach
* Models for organizations dealing with things like confidentiality, coaching in isolation, implementing organizational coaching and how to form a team of executive coaches
* The future of executive coaching
The third and final part of the panel activity was a Q&A session where panelists reassembled and proceeded to respond to questions posed by members of the audience. During this time, attendees were able to garner expert feedback on areas of the executive coaching discipline they deemed most significant.
