2:30 PM Panel: Accelerating Women Leaders

In a widely publicized initiative a few years ago, eBay embarked on a journey to bring more women into its top ranks. Senior executives at the firm discovered the investment yielded substantial bottom-line and cultural benefits. Despite these findings there are still far too few women gaining entry into the C-suite. It appears a contributing factor to this reality is that women are not receiving enough opportunities to gain the key work experiences viewed as necessary to gain entry into the C-suite. During this panel discussion attendees will : 

  • Learn about the unique cultures from some of the world’s most innovative companies
  • Hear how they are pushing the boundaries on advancing female leadership 

3:20 PM Building a Coaching Culture to Drive Long Term Engagement

As more companies look to build leadership capacity and better engage their people, coaching cultures are becoming a hot topic of conversation. And with good reason—companies with coaching cultures are more than twice as likely to be classified as high-performing organizations and outperform their peers in internal mobility, bench strength and retention. But even though research shows how crucial employee engagement is to the success of a business, many companies still struggle with how to make it happen. To truly leverage the power of coaching within your organization, it must become an integral part of your company’s DNA—moving beyond something your people do to become something that defines who your leaders are. 

During this session attendees will: 

  • Review a process to build a scalable and sustainable coaching culture 
  • Drive long-term engagement and deliver extraordinary results
  • Make coaching an integral part of your company’s DNA
