Overview

With much of the economy shut down and many ordered to work from home around the world, the rapid pace of modern life has ground to a halt in dramatic fashion in 2020. Experienced professionals have suddenly adapted to new routines as they spend more time with families and less time commuting. At the same time, many have lost entire livelihoods that have taken years of personal sacrifice and investment. For better or worse, many have already realised that life cannot and should not be the same again.

The shock of this dramatic and seismic shift provides its own list of challenges and opportunities. Now, more than ever exists a unique chance for people to reset their priorities, reappraising what motivates them without the rigid framework of obligations that have characterised 21st-century life.

However, such drastic reinvention is not easy. A personal or professional epiphany is only the first step in a long and difficult transformational journey. Even with a firm end goal in mind, maintaining focus and stamina can be exhausting without taking the right steps.

The Financial Times, in partnership with i-Coach, present this webinar session that will examine the ways in which the confines of the pandemic can be utilised to recalibrate your professional and personal compass.

The Financial Times is one of the world’s leading business news organisations, recognised internationally for its authority, integrity and accuracy. The FT has a record paying readership of one million, three-quarters of which are digital subscriptions. It is part of Nikkei Inc., which provides a broad range of information, news and services for the global business community.

i-coach is a consultancy, providing executive, team and Board-level coaching alongside organisation and personal development services. Founded as i-coach academy in 2001, we work with organisations to leverage individual, team and company-wide learning to achieve excellence. We also work with people in the midst of personal reinvention, helping them create the life they want and thrive during times of change. Our senior consultants and associates have been guiding clients through business, career and life transitions for over 30 years.  

Working with individuals to transform lives: At the heart of our work with individuals is our iOpener reinvention and transition programme. It directly addresses today’s challenges: the pace of change; the need to manage multiple careers and roles; the desire for fulfilment and meaning. Originally run as a retreat, iOpener will soon be available as an online blending learning option, supported by a suite of reinvention resources. 

Working with organisations to instil learning and empower leaders: We also support organisations as they navigate change and adapt to tomorrow’s challenges. We offer consultancy services, working directly with senior executives to help them fulfil their potential and enable their organisations to thrive. And we collaborate with teams to address broader, company-wide issues – from elevating performance to shifting mindsets.  

Working with coaches to support the next generation: We are firm believers in empowering our clients to create lasting change. So we create and run coach development and coaching skills programmes, helping our clients nurture a ‘coaching culture’ within their business. And we actively educate the next generation of coaches though our accredited programmes.

Crucially, we understand that everyone is different. So our diverse team reflects this, working with people in a variety of ways depending on their needs. While our approach may differ, we share a belief that coaching is an empowering, collaborative learning process which builds confidence and skills, so our clients are able to self-coach and – over time – coach others.
