Design and Innovation are two of the biggest buzzwords in business and leadership circles today. What do they mean for the coaching profession?  How do they apply to our work?  What talents, knowledge, methods, and skills do change agents need to develop and tap in order to design new kinds of conversations that will ignite innovation and transform results?

Find the answers to these and other compelling questions at the 2016 Capital Coaches Conference.

The 13th annual CCC brings more than 400 coaches and allied professionals (HR, OD, L&D, and more) together in the world capital of coaching – Washington, D.C. – for two days of learning, development, and networking events.

This year’s theme, Designing Innovative Conversations, covers an array of cutting-edge content and skill-building workshops designed for both seasoned and aspiring coaches:

  • Design Thinking
  • Neuroscience
  • Mindfulness
  • Somatics
  • NLP and Neuro Semantics
  • Storytelling and story-types
  • Peer Group Coaching
  • Changing old habits and limiting beliefs
  • Self-development
  • Leadership development
  • Business development

We kick off on Friday with opening keynoter Warren Berger, author of the bestselling book, A More Beautiful Question.  A leading expert on Design Thinking and collaborative inquiry, Warren will share a powerful question-based methodology that’s now spreading from Silicon Valley to leading organizations everywhere, and show you how to incorporate Design Thinking into the design of your coaching conversations.

We close on Saturday with motivational keynoter and noted performance improvement consultant Dr. Richard Chang, author of The Passion Plan. From a 20-year career of coaching and consulting with peak performing athletes, individuals, and organizations, Richard discovered that their exceptional success was derived from one single source: passion. Discover your passion in this high-energy, interactive session and develop a plan to leverage its power in your own work and life.

And in between keynotes, you can choose from more than 30 interactive breakout sessions designed to expand your mind, body, and skills. Click here to learn more.

“I loved it, I had a blast. Volunteering was a fabulous way to connect, meet new people, and feel like I was contributing.”

“The sessions were very useful and educational, and didn’t cater only to new coaches. The pace of both days was perfect, leaving enough time to chat with other coaches. All in all, I would say this was the best conference yet.”
