ESMT Coaching Colloquia

10th ESMT/KDVI Coaching Colloquium

New Leadership? New Coaching?

December 14–15 at ESMT Berlin.

The Center for Leadership Development Research at the ESMT Berlin and Kets de Vries Institute will hold for the 10th time the now legendary ESMT/KDVI Coaching Colloquium. The colloquium continues to serve as an opportunity for academics, practicing leadership coaches, human resources and learning and development professionals, and management consultants to enhance their knowledge, skills, and networks through intensive collaboration and peer-consultation on challenging or unusual cases in the practice of executive coaching.

Call of Papers

The Center for Leadership Development Research (CLDR) and Kets de Vries Institute invite experienced coaches, academics studying coaching and leadership, and HR and learning and development professionals to engage in challenging but safe discussions of the topic of “New Leadership? New Coaching?” at the 10th ESMT-KDVI coaching colloquium. With many of the established leadership axioms and theories being questioned by the reality of today’s executives, we want to explore if we need to rethink leadership in organizations and what role coaching and coaches play in this process. As usual, the heart of the Colloquium is the discussion of participants’ cases. Please see the Call of Papers for information about submitting your case.
