Leading in Uncertain Times: The Coach's Contribution
December 2015

 

Presented by John Lazar

Monthly learning call for Generative Leadership Community of Practice

 

The speed of life is accelerating and getting more complex; our ability to predict and control its direction and events is decreasing. While we count on our leaders to lead the way, as coaches, how can we enable them, equip them, make them better and more effective? We have perspectives about complexity, adult learning, motivation, leadership practices and performance improvement that can provide insights and distinctions about where we can best put our attention. Learn what we can do to enable leaders’ improved perspective and traction for leading their organizations into the challenging future.

Leading in Uncertain Times: What We Can Do to Improve the Odds
October 2015

 

Session presented by John Lazar

Delivered at ISPI EMEA Conference, Istanbul, Turkey

 

The speed of life is accelerating and our ability to anticipate its direction and events is decreasing. While we count on our leaders to lead the way, as change agents, how can we enable them, equip them, make them better and more effective? There’s a growing body of relevant research and theory across disciplines about adult learning, motivation, leadership practices and performance improvement. It can provide valuable insights and useful distinctions about where we can best put our attention. Learn about four areas worth focusing on to give leaders perspective and traction for leading their organizations into the challenging future.

Leading in Uncertain Times: What We Can Do

 

Accelerating the Implementation of Knowledge Management Systems in Organizations
 
September 2015

 

Poster session presented by Daniela Robu. Created by Daniela Robu, John Lazar and Barbara Brady-Fryer

Delivered for 16th European Conference on Knowledge Management, Udine, Italy

 

The larger the organization gets, the harder it is to maintain, organize and disseminate the knowledge it takes for the organization to run effectively and efficiently. Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) focus on making information organized and accessible. Aligned to the knowledge management vision of performance excellence, a KMS solution at Alberta Health Services is structuring its components by drawing on: lessons learned from researchers and best practices from leading KMS end-user organizations; an adapt and adopt principle to meet its organizational requirements; and innovative adaptations of its policies to support its implementation approach.

June, 2015

 

Webinar presented by John Lazar

Delivered for the ICF Science of Coaching Community of Practice monthly meeting

Knowing whether results met or exceeded the standard is essential. Tailoring your story (report) for each stakeholder audience seals the deal. Learn the value of measuring the important stuff and telling the relevant story to those who need to know (and the research behind it).

Organizations want to know that that their interventions are successful and

worth the investment. That often takes the form of an ROI number. But if ROI
