2019 QUT Leadership Coaching Conference: Crossing Boundaries

Crossing Boundaries, Leadership Coaching Conference

One thing is certain – today’s leaders face the reality of a ‘VUCA’ world of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. In times of rapid change, the temptation is to pull back.

Conference update:
We are delighted to announce our first keynote speaker for our inaugural Leadership Coaching Conference, Michael Bungay Stainer.

Michael is the founder and CEO of BOX OF CRAYONS, a company that helps organisations do less good work and more great work. We are thrilled Michael will be joining us from Toronto, where he was the first Canadian Coach of the Year. He and his company work with busy leaders to build stronger teams and get better results.

In our fast moving world, Michael says that people are busy. They’re overcommitted, over-connected and overwhelmed. They’re working hard, sure  … but are they having the impact that they (and you) want them to have? What if people were able to work less hard, but have more impact? What if they were able to do more of the work that matters? What if they were able to do more Great Work? Inspiring and informative for Leaders and Coaches, come along to our conference to hear more!

Michael is a highly engaging speaker who will leave conference participants with new insights and energy, through his useful, provocative and highly interactive session where you will walk away with a plan to do something different right away.

In November 2019, QUT is hosting a Leadership Coaching Conference: Crossing Boundaries.

This conference explores how to step forward and engage with change by navigating boundaries and generating creative tension through conversation, connection, and collaboration.

Boundaries can be in many forms – psychological, systemic, cultural, disciplinary, geographical, industry and so on. A ‘real world’ boundary of interest to QUT in hosting the conference is the research-practitioner divide. Another includes how great practices from the arts and sport can be incorporated into the business world. 

Leadership coaching describes an adaptive leadership approach that challenges the rigidity of boundaries and is fuelled by curiosity and inquiry. It generates energy through great conversations within and between organisations. Leadership coaching embraces dialogue about meaning, purpose, and ethics. This is the space of our conference.

Please join us for the inaugural Leadership Coaching Conference: Crossing Boundaries. The Conference will both explore and model leadership coaching with highly interactive sessions embracing a range of themes – The mind and neuroscience; technological disruption, organizational systems, cultures and values, women in leadership, global and diverse perspectives and groups and teams, which act as boundaries to shape contributions, and in the spirit of the broader conference theme, we challenge you to cross them!
