Welcome and opening by Heli Backman, President of the International Coach Federation, Finland 

Future of 2020; What path do you take?
– Based on KPMG CEO and HR surveys by Minna Tuominen-Thuesen, Partner, KPMG 

  • A successful CEO is an agile CEO. One of the most compelling findings in KPMG’s 2019 Global CEO Outlook is that over two-thirds of chief executive officers believe that agility is the new currency of business. If they fail to adapt to a constantly changing world, their business will become irrelevant. HR Executives are similarly concerned about irrelevance. A finding from KPMG’s Future of HR 2020 survey — in which over 1,300 HR executives from across the globe participated —3 in 5 HR leaders believe that the HR function will rapidly become irrelevant if it doesn’t modernize its approach to understanding and planning for the future needs of the workforce. 

Importance of coaching for senior leaders and executives
– Latest evidence of the impact by Professor Jonathan Passmore, Director of The Henley Centre for Coaching at Henley Business School 

Jonathan will review the latest research and thinking in coaching and cover questions such as:  

  • Does coaching really offer individuals and organisations an advantage? 
  •  What does good coaching look like? 

Drawing on the evidence, Jonathan will encore delegates to think critically about their organisational practices and focus on adopting an evidence-based approach to driving the performance of executive leaders and teams. 

In addition, Jonathan will go through the renewed Core Competences of the International Coach Federation. He’ll outline why they are changing and what this exactly means for ICF coaches and their clients.
