    ACMP and ICF Partnership:

    Building a re-imagined future

    Re-Imagine managing leaders as LEADER-COACHES and prepare them to lead through change and not just through the next project. Can you imagine it? How would that impact the sustainability of change? The program sponsor and program designer get real about the challenges, wins, and the wavering points experienced while delivering leadership development virtually to 65 participants in 3 countries and 4 time zones during a pandemic.

    Learn how the CHRO of VertexOne, an IT organization, led the charge of breaking the pattern of setting aside leadership development when things got tough and sparked the change that bridged the gap between how leadership development once was and the vision of what it could be at VertexOne. 

    The session facilitators provide a behind-the-scenes tour that reveals how a year-long leadership development program launched, stayed on the strategic agenda, and thrived despite the pandemic. Hear first-hand what it took to keep leadership development a company priority amidst what some have called the most significant disruptor that the current workforce has ever encountered. Walk away from this transparent discussion, with the key elements that kept the participants engaged, the vision alive, and the unexpected benefits of developing leaders during this critical time.

      Key Takeaways:

      • Coaching & Change Management as foundational pieces to leadership development
      • Transformation Readiness
      • Innovation & Imagination
      • Change Adoption


      • Objective 1 Identify how to prepare leaders to facilitate change more effectively
      • Objective 2 Understand the role of emotional intelligence in successful change
      • Objective 3 Discover critical elements of ARC3* how to implement them, and what is involved in supporting a consistent practice.
      • Objective 4 Create greater momentum by blending strategy, change management, and coaching elements

      Monthly Meeting

       Wiring Your Brain for Good



      0 Resource Development

      1.0 Core Competencies 

      What if you were missing many opportunities throughout each day to hardwire your brain for greater positivity? The word simple is not meant to imply a quick fix but when practiced consistently and overtime this approach towards greater Positive Neuroplasticity can support a life lived less often in the reactive ‘red zone’ and more regularly in the responsive ‘green zone’. After completing Rick Hanson’s professional training and practicing for several years, Kelley can attest to the well of positivity that is always close at hand and she shares the basic framework with you in this presentation so you can start practicing today!  Let’s choose to live with greater positivity in our own lives and in cooperation with others. Just imagine what we might do together!
