Executive and Performance Coaching: Sharing Research on Coaching Efficacy in addition to the Who, Where and When of Current Coaching Practices
Jaci Masztal, PhD and Welyne Thomas, PhD
Wednesday, October 28, 2015
CE Hours: 3
Coaches are becoming omnipresent in corporate America. Once provided only to executives or those with performance problems, now they are often offered at all levels of management. While many ‘how-to’ popular press articles exist on coaching, there are few rigorously executed empirical studies that demonstrate the efficacy of the various models and/or coaching preparation or certification. Research has been done on coaching efficacy– typically reporting positive results, but little information is available on the coaches themselves including certification and experience. In this workshop we’ll share research findings on coaching efficacy while also providing as much information as is available about who is doing the coaching and under what circumstances. To the extent data are available cross-ethnic or cross-gender efficacy will be discussed.
- Explain findings from the most recent research on coaching effectiveness
- Describe the circumstances under which coaching occurs most frequently
- List and critique sources of coaching certification
- Summarize research findings of corporate use of coaching based on research collected for this workshop by presenters
Big Data, Analytics, and Their Current and Future Roles in Talent Management
John Morrison, PhD
Wednesday, December 9, 2015
CE Hours: 3
Throughout the employment life cycle, job candidates and workers generate tremendous amounts of structured and unstructured digital information. Increasingly, techniques for managing, analyzing and drawing insights from these massive datasets that were first applied in marketing, computer science, economics, and other fields are being utilized in talent management processes. Focusing on several components of talent management, such as pre-employment selection, performance measurement, and leadership assessment, this workshop addresses the current state of this trend, potential future directions, and implications for I/O Psychologists. The workshop will cover ways Big Data and analytics can help organizations drive diversity in terms of ethnic background, gender, and other aspects through optimized recruiting and retention strategies, etc.
- Explain the various forms Big Data can take and how they are represented in various talent management processes
- Describe how data scientists’ and related professionals’ perspectives on various types of talent management challenges differ from those of I/O Psychologists
- Discuss current and potential future opportunities for I/O Psychologists to make use of new information sources and analysis techniques and collaborate with other professionals with expertise in this area
