Tim Gallwey

For over forty years I have focused my efforts on the importance of what I call The Inner Game. I have learned many things on this journey while all the time in both my personal life and my public work, there has been one overriding passion. For both individual and for society, there must be a re-balancing of the importance we give to “the inner domain,” that which takes place within human beings as distinct with all that goes on in external world.”

While everybody agrees that leadership makes or breaks individual performance, team results and companies’ success, despite the 3,070,000,000 references on Google and the wealth of information on leadership, courses, workshops, dedicated schools, programs, specialized coaches, consultants and trainers, somehow leadership continues to eludes us. In this masterclass we explore an unconventional approach to leadership effectiveness through the art and science of coaching.

Renato Ricci

When we think of changing something, whether it's a habit or attitude, a reaction of doubt and fear often comes up. Tim Gallwey created the concept called the Inner Game. In this interactive panel, each participant will understand how Mobility is essential to change, how to use it in people development processes such as coaching, mentoring and leadership and reflect on how changes are processed within the changes.

Daphna Horowitz, MCC

Experts are valued for their knowledge and experience. They are often promoted to leadership roles because of their talent. Yet, once they reach a level of success, they seem to hit a glass ceiling where other skills are needed to progress. In fact, being the expert becomes the hold back in leadership unless going beyond expertise and embracing new leadership skills. In this 2-hour workshop, we will embark on the exploration of mastery in leadership.

Fostering Transformative Learning: Enabling Change that is Deep & Sustainable

Historically, coaching has been focused toward achieving improvement with respect to a specific behavioral performance. This involves promoting the development of that person's behavioral competence through careful observation and feedback and asking powerful question to stimulate critical thinking. In recent years, the science of coaching has evolved and has expanded meaning. It goes beyond result optimization to achieve peak performance to guiding people towards deep learning. Impactful coaching that enables sustainable change is inherently a reflective process that involves people gaining awareness on how they regulate their thoughts, feelings and actions.
In this keynote speech, Dr Ben Koh explains the science behind how an evocative inside-out coaching approach can surpass conventional problem-solving and solution-creating approach in enabling change that is deep and sustainable. You will gain an understanding on how expanding people’s thinking capacity as the premise for authentic change and developing learning agility as the key predictor for future potential.

Philippe Rosinski MCC, Belgium

Intercultural coaching to promote sustainable change

In this keynote session, Philippe will show how we can improve our creativity and impact by systematically integrating culture into coaching. Cultural differences of all kinds are often a source of misunderstandings and difficulties. However, intercultural coaching allows to treat cultural differences as a source of richness and as an opportunity to go beyond current cultural limitations. You will learn about a broad, inclusive and dynamic concept of culture that contrasts with the traditional static and binary view (which tends to perpetuate limiting stereotypes). You will experience firsthand the Cultural Orientations Framework (COF) assessment, a roadmap and assessment tool to navigate the cultural terrain. You will discover how the COF can be used to facilitate individual, team, organizational and societal development. Philippe will share lessons from his international experience of promoting sustainable change, individually and collectively. You will also have a chance to raise your own cultural awareness, as well as discover how to broaden your cultural repertoire.

The Inner Game Of CHANGE

In a Workplace that Works = property within and without. Picture this: teams of individuals working together in a way that they moving towards their common external goal, but doing so in a way that they are growing in the direction of their own inner outcomes as a part of the human family. Every day they are learning from their experience, how to learn to accomplish as much internally as they do externally. In the process, their culture changes as they change, families change, compassion grows with each breath of courage. It is the intent of this keynote that you will leave with the hope that such a way of working is possible.

Leadership Mastery: The Transition from Expert to Leader

What does it means to be an expert and a leader?

As experts we’re valued for our knowledge and experience. We’re often promoted to leadership roles because of our talents. Yet, once we’ve reached a level of success, we seem to hit a glass ceiling where other skills are needed for us to progress any further. In fact, being the expert holds us back unless we learn to let go of expertise and embrace leadership skills. This is what leadership mastery is all about.

Leadership Mastery doesn’t always come naturally and we often feel overwhelmed and out of our depth when we reach the stage of transition from expert to leader. The transition that needs to happen here relates to our mindset. The good news is that leadership can be learnt.

In this 2-hour workshop, Daphna Horowitz takes us on a journey of leadership mastery.
We begin by learning the 4 pillars of leadership and how these are impacted in times of change. We then explore the leadership mastery cycle that leads us through the 5 levels of leadership. At the end of the workshop, you will walk away with a leadership manifesto to guide you in creating a leadership strategy that sets you up for making the change from talented professional to extraordinary leader.

Daphna weaves stories of her experience of working with leaders and their teams around the globe together with her personal stories of overcoming challenges and climbing Africa’s tallest mountain, Kilimanjaro to create an interactive, impactful workshop experience.

We often spend time thinking and strategizing about our business.

Now it’s time to do the same kind of thinking about our leadership.

THE PROBLEM:The impossible dream:

everyone should be a leader

The reality:

everyone already is! but… in what?

While everybody agrees that leadership makes or breaks individual performance, team results and companies’ success, despite the 3,070,000,000 references on Google and the wealth of information on leadership, courses, workshops, dedicated schools, programs, specialized coaches, consultants and trainers, somehow leadership continues to eludes us.It is no wonder that we think that somehow it is something you are either born with or not. So why does leadership continue to elude us? Why sometimes we are drawn to a cause and are participating fully while most of the time we are left cold even though the cause may be good for the organization or company? Why we do what we do and don’t do what we don’t’ do?What if the legacy approach to leadership is wrong? (since it didn’t change leadership much) What then? What if the answer lies somewhere else, and is a kind of “Cirque du Soleil” a “LeaderShift”?In this masterclass we explore an unconventional approach to leadership through the art and science of coaching. We will be taking on some key approaches from coaching to cause immediate breakthroughs in leadership.Participants will have the opportunity to participate actively and contribute directly from their smart phone, tablet, or laptop connected to the Internet by using MentiMeter a web application that takes input and aggregates results in real time from audience that doesn’t require any installation.A few questions we will explore :
  • What is the current strategy for leadership development?
  • Where we keep failing at?
  • How can we approach leadership development differently?
  • What kind of results can we expect from the new approach?

Mobility: A New Approach to Change

When we think of changing something, whether it's a habit or attitude, a reaction of doubt and fear often comes up.Change just for change, without a purpose, is untenable.In the 1970s, an American named Tim Gallwey created the concept called the Inner Game. In it people learn through a process that combines performance, learning and enjoyment. In this learning format, which gave rise to what we call Modern Coaching, the word change has been replaced by the term Mobility. Mobility is moving toward a desired outcome in a pleasurable manner and within a possible time. In this interactive panel, each participant will:
  • understand how Mobility is much more powerful than simple change;
  • learn how to use this concept in people development processes such as coaching, mentoring and leadership;
  • reflect on how changes are processed within the changes.
This concept, created by Gallwey, was and is used by large companies in their management, innovation, and leadership processes - such as Apple, Coca-Cola, IBM, Harley Davidson, Rolls Royce and others. How to make a change in an enjoyable way? This is the main point of Mobility concepts. If you want to improve your strategies for success in changing environments this workshop is for you.

The Heart of CHANGE: The Way IN is the Way OUT

If you are a successful business executive than you will know the truth of this statement. Life challenges, roadblocks and obstacles stand stubbornly, and often invisibly in the way of your progress. Yet, somehow you persist. With grit, passion and tenacity you kept moving and continue to achieve. What if even 10% of that energy used for sheer will as your engine for success were available to you for another purpose, e.g. creativity, innovation or maybe personal restoration? This is possible when you go beyond sheer will to the heart of change. That heart is in fact an internal call to be self-authoring and self-ruling as we exercise our inner authority to choose how to relate to the conditions of our lives. This is a state of being called living sovereign. In this keynote session, Janet will challenge assumptions and habits so that you may evoke a new mindset about the source of motivation in life.

Read more / less

So much of personal and professional success in the early stages of your life is based upon an outer definition of success, effectiveness and expected conduct. Then a moment arises when you pause, take a breath and realize that you are operating in ways that are not deeply respectful nor congruent with your core self. Questions arise without satisfactory answers: “Is this all there is?” or “What am I doing this for?” Clients often arrive to a professional coaching engagement with these questions, in a state of despair, wondering how did life unfold to that moment. Asking “why” is less useful than asking “what is wanted now?” This change in question holds hope and exploring it provides a shift in mood as well as the possibility to convey a deeper truth for each person. In the pause and moments taken for internal examination, you have the possibility to discover a fulfilling answer for the existential question, “For what purpose am I alive?”

In this session exploration you are invited to adopt the mindset that what you want for your contribution to life, the planet, society, community, workplace, family and yourself is accessible by awakening your heart to recognize flow in your own life. Flow supports you to connect with your unique inner wisdom, to know your own true self and the experiences in life that intrinsically motivate and support your state of bliss. No person starts out life in this way. Human beings don't come with an operator's manual. We're always a work in progress. How you approach perceived obstacles and how you navigate your way through, defines you and either opens or closes the doors of opportunity in your life, in any context. Choosing to invite change through a connection to your wholeness, is a generative act. Being connected to your internal resources, capability and innate creativity, even for the moment of this thought, is the beginning of moving forward. Build a new habit for listening within and you will claim your unique and vital motivation as a lifelong source of quality and fulfillment.

Session Outcomes

  • Connect with your internal motivation that transforms the impossible into the possible
  • Learn ways to sustain that connection and ignite your innate creativity
  • Gain perspective about the source of discomfort as the source of shift
  • Reflect on your relationship with time so you discover your pathway to continuously self-disrupt toward your desired future
