ESMT Coaching Colloquia

9th ESMT/KDVI Coaching Colloquium

The dark triad of leadership: How narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy play out in executive coaching

December 15–16, 2017 at ESMT Berlin

The Center for Leadership Development Research at the ESMT Berlin and Kets de Vries Institute run for the 9th time the now legendary ESMT/KDVI Coaching Colloquium. For selected references please see the end of the call of papers. 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.

During the colloquium we will be working with real cases presented by real coaches, faculty, and learning and development managers and commented upon by fellow professionals. We will continue building on our previous experience of creating a real coaching development laboratory with an opportunity to learn and to contribute to the learning of others.

Please refer to the call for papers for additional details.
