Presenter: Kristen Wong , Oregon Health & Science University

As the workplace becomes more diverse and globalized, leadership, including human resources, is struggling to keep up with the changes. The influx of ambitious Millennials, the increase of multi-cultural teams, and the push for equality are driving a need for management skills that are adaptable and appropriate for the new workplace. Coaching is a skill that eludes many leaders, yet integral to building relationships and establishing a culture of accountability. There are four considerations to be mindful of and to apply within the coaching context: The Four Cs of Global Coaching provides a framework for a leader to apply when having a coaching dialogue with an individual from a different culture. Especially for human resources—as mentors they must use their influence rather than authority to achieve success for their organization.

This session will provide leaders with a tool to encourage accountability, and most importantly, strengthen relationships in the modern workplace.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will be able to identify how coaching includes a cultural component by learning about the four considerations.
  • Participants will be able to recognize the difference between influence and authority in a coaching situation with their clients.
  • Participants will be able to implement global coaching techniques to a coaching situation to increase engagement and effectiveness.
