Speaker: Dr. Hélène Seiler
Based on four years of research with 25 executive coaches and 150 clients worldwide, Dr. Helene Seiler recently published the book, Using Client Feedback in Executive Coaching, Improving Reflective Practice, through Open University Press, McGraw-Hill in 2021. Executive coaches routinely use feedback to enrich their reflective practice and professional development. Most of them actively seek developmental feedback from peers, mentors, supervisors and assessors. Yet, they neglect a key group of stakeholders who spend the most time observing them in practice: their clients.
This webinar will make the business case for client feedback and offer practical advice for receiving valuable client feedback to enhance your development as a coach. The learning objectives of this webinar are twofold:
- Increase awareness about the unique benefits of client feedback in relation to the reflective practice and professional development of the coach
- Introduce a structured protocol to capture client feedback during a coaching session
