Coaching CoP September 2016

Please contact Peggy Linden to register.

Topic: Shift into Thrive: Unlocking the Power of Resiliency 

Presenter: Kevin Nourse, PhD, PCC
Kevin is an executive coach, leadership researcher, author, and professional speaker who has a passion for helping leaders resiliently lead and navigate change. His experience supporting his mother through her illness with lung cancer in 1995 ignited Kevin's interest in resiliency. After her death, he immersed himself in the hospice movement as a volunteer with patients facing terminal diseases. Many of these patients continued to learn and grow despite their imminent death. These life-changing experiences lead Kevin to study resiliency among managers in New Orleans that experienced Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Dr. Nourse founded Nourse Leadership Strategies (NLS) in 1991 and offers executive coaching, team effectiveness initiatives, and leadership development programs. The firm is based in Washington, DC and Los Angeles, CA. Kevin is also on the faculty of the Georgetown Leadership Coaching Program.

Despite all we know about leadership, women continue to struggle to reach the highest levels of organizations. While resiliency and the ability to navigate tough times are important for everyone, recent research has suggested that it is particularly critical for women given the unique barriers they face. The ability to maintain resiliency and thrive in the midst of adversity is an intentional choice. How ready are you as a coach to support your female clients in their efforts to sustain or regain their resiliency and thrive? Join us for this session with presenter Kevin Nourse, PhD who is the co-author of a new book, Shift into Thrive: Six Strategies for Women to Unlock the Power of Resiliency. He will discuss concepts from his book research as well as the six resilience-building strategies that are essential for both women and men.
