Coaching Skills to Transform an Organization – What If??
About the Session:
What if… you found a way to transform your organizational culture bringing more innovation, creativity, engagement, and excitement in to the fold? What if…the transformation was far reaching and had unintended impacts beyond the walls of your organization? What if… this transformation had the possibility of influencing mental health reform and addressing stigma?? Would you take action? Come and listen to how one organization is using the “Coach Approach” to do this very thing.
Sharon Pitawanakwat, as the CEO of the CMHA-Thunder Bay Branch, is engaging all employees of her organization in an exciting transformational initiative – Coaching to Support Recovery. As an Executive Coach herself, she is passionate about the possibilities that coaching offers and envisions this approach embedded in all aspects of the organizational culture. With financial support of Bell Canada’s Community Fund she is now bringing this vision to life.
