Coaching as an Organisational Psychologist: the promise and the reality

Event number: 18959
5 CPD hours
Presenter(s): David Heap

The past decade has seen a marked increase in the number of individuals establishing themselves as a ‘coach’, be it executive coach, business coach, performance coach or life coach. In a market becoming flooded with such services aimed at organisations, where does coaching fits into the application of organisational psychology today? The purpose of this workshop is to help early to mid-career organisational psychologists explore how they can use coaching for the benefit of their clients, their professional practice and their careers. 

After successfully delivering this workshop at IOP 2017, David has kindly offered to travel from Sydney to deliver the session for us in Brisbane.
