A panel discussion

Humans in the digital age and the impact on coaching

An hours panel discussion looking at some of the current trends in technology serving the coaching industry today.

We will be taking a look at some of technology that exists in coaching today, what has changed over the last year, the different ways it can add value and why it is not always the best solution.

As coaches we may have a tendency to shy away from technology, perhaps believing that we need to be people focused but can technology enable us to actually be more people focused? As efficiencies in the workplace change, virtual working increases and the way we work provides questions about what is best for us, for our businesses and our future.

There is no denying that the way we work is changing and so has our clients’ circumstances. Technology plays a crucial role in navigating our businesses through challenging times, which is what we will address in this session.

There will be a short time for you ask questions to the panel.
