Webinar Description:

Our webinar speakers will discuss their book, Coaching in Government: Stories and Tips for Coaching Professionals (to be published December 20, 2022), that captures the story of how internal coaching was introduced—and has since evolved—in the U.S. Federal Government and provides coaches and government agency leaders with the skills and tools to help them implement their own successful coaching programs. The book by these leaders in the field, follows the stories of several pioneers who have implemented coaching programs in government, aiming to help coaches learn from their mistakes and gain from their wisdom. Filled with interviews, case studies, reflective questions, and how-to action points, each chapter highlights the successes and failures of each coach's journey so that professionals can incorporate these lessons in their own practice. Chapters take readers from the beginning considerations to contemplating the future of their programs, focusing on setting a vision, overcoming issues and challenges, leveraging predictors of success, making key decisions, building foundations for sustainability, and creating continuing education for sustainment of change. Accessible and relatable, these stories will help professionals learn from those that have come before them, helping them begin the groundswell of change effectively and proactively in their own programs.
