Coaching on the Axis Masterclass with Dr Marc Kahn

Coaching culture vs. business culture

Dr Marc Kahn will explore the complexity of working systemically with multiple contracting parties in the systemic landscape of coaching in organisations. 

Using the notion of a ‘coaching axis’ he will share how to manage this landscape (for all parties including the organisation) in a way that delivers maximum value for both the organisation and the individual being coached. He will also explore how to understand the interface and ethical tensions between coaching culture and business culture, and appreciate the complexity of delivering business coaching in view of company specific organisational cultures.
