The Untapped Value of Coaching: How coaching can contribute to our society's most disadvantaged

Format Seminar/Presentation
Presenters Anand Shankaran Human Resources Director, Mission Australia and Director, Validity Coaching; interviewed by Mr Aaron McEwan Director, Northern Region, Opic Leadership and IGCP Nat. Committee
Description In keeping with the spirit of the Christmas season we thought it might be timely to reflect on ways of giving back to society using our skills and experience as professional coaches.

In this unusual 'brief interview' format we will explore some applications of coaching in the not-for-profit sector and examine exactly what types of contribution that coaching can make.

Anand will share his experiences as a coach, mentor and purchaser of coaching services and provide insight into the untapped value of coaching and how this powerful tool of transformation can be harnessed to impact on the challenges facing the most disadvantaged in our society.

After this, we will provide the opportunity for celebrating another great year of professional development in the company of great colleagues with a few drinks and nibbles!
