Matt Dodson, Chevron’s Manager of Organization Effectiveness, will share the story and evolution of coaching over the last 10 years at Chevron. The goal of this session is to offer insight into corporate coaching and to inspire you as you grow your own coaching business.
Matt will describe attempts at transformational coaching inside a highly analytical company culture, why building a coaching practice inside a big corporation is so challenging, and the lessons he's learned about what it really takes to build a coaching practice that adds value.
You will discover:
• Insight into why building an internal coaching offering is so challenging.
• Learn by example, the pathway of an actual coaching evolution in a Fortune 15 Company…including the organizational culture shift occurring inside that corporation and why it is so important to the future of internal and external coaches.
• Share essential lessons for contributing to and creating a successful internal coaching practice.
In this 3-part presentation, Matt will first discuss why building a transformational coaching practice is particularly challenging. Then he'll talk about his newly formed organization and share the journey and evolution to get where they are today. Lastly, he will share the lessons he's identified as necessary to contributing to a successful coaching practice.
