Free professional and executive development opportunity from CALM – Nov. 7 - 8

Do you have a professional challenge? Join our Graduate Certificate in Executive Coaching students for a free executive coaching session in which they will coach you toward finding creative and interesting solutions to your challenge. Executive coaching is not counselling; it's a conversation between coach and coachee that encourages new ideas and perspectives.

During the coaching students' final residency they must coach someone from the business community they have never met, in front of a panel of  a faculty member and an alumni of the program, as an evaluation of their coaching skills. Each session is approximately one hour in length and includes an introduction to your coach, 30 minutes of coaching on your professional challenge and a 15 minute debrief with the faculty/alumni panel.Conversation topics often include:

  • Managing workload
  • Employee retention
  • Taking your career to the next level
  • Balancing work and non-work priorities
  • Career transitions
  • Identifying and celebrating successes
