CEO Group Coaching Program
DoubleTree Hotel & Executive Meeting Center Portland - Lloyd Center

Do you want to figure out what’s holding you back from greater profitability, revenue growth and fully engaging your employees in your vision for the company?

The CEO Coaching Program will unlock your power as a leader to achieve these goals and bring about growth for your company, as a direct result of your contributions.

How It Works

  1. . Pick a game-changing project for the company
  2. . Work on it intensively for six months with structured support, making huge strides
  3. . Receive and give coaching among other CEOs from comparable organizations
  4. . Be pushed out of the comfort zone and into the growth zone, by highly qualified coaches

Agenda The SPTLI format involves 12 three-hour group-coaching sessions over a six-month period, meeting bi-weekly. There will also be 30 minute, one-on-one coaching phone calls in the weeks between sessions.

Sessions:

  1. . Introduction to the Process, and Identify each CEO’s Project
  2. . Refine the Project and Get Feedback
  3. . Finalize Project and Create Action Plan
  4. . Metrics and Performance Management
  5. . Uncover Blind Spots, Receive Coaching, Advance the Project
  6. . How a CEO can Coach Direct Reports, Advance the Project, Trouble Shoot
  7. . More on CEO as Coach, Advanced Delegation Skills, Advance the Project
  8. . At least one CEO has a major setback by now; we all use it as a learning tool as we get that CEO back on track – everyone learns from this experience; remaining sessions are highly customized to what emerges in the group
  9. . From Breakdown to Breakthrough – using the setback to illuminate problems and create growth
  10. . Begin to wrap up the project, Delegation trouble-shooting, Empowered work teams
  11. . Further wrap-up and trouble shooting
  12. . Celebration and planning for how to keep up the momentum

As the CEO, you will be asked to bring in a challenge – some burning need, chronic problem or stalled initiative that, if improved, would break you and your company out to the next level.

In the group sessions, you will receive frank, powerful coaching from our facilitators – a former CEO and a highly experienced business coach. You will also get feedback and support from your peers in the room and guest CEO’s who will participate in some of the sessions. You make commitments for keeping your project on track every week and report on results at each session.

CEO & CIO Executive Coaching Preview
DoubleTree Hotel & Executive Meeting Center Portland - Lloyd Center

In this powerful three-hour session, you will learn and practice a new way to coach your own direct reports, a method you can put to use immediately — while getting a preview into the upcoming “CEO and CIO Group Coaching Programs” from the Portland Transformational Leadership Initiative (PTLI) and Oregon Training Network (OTN).

A recent Portland Development Commission (PDC) survey of the Portland technology community found that the single greatest need is for more effective mentoring opportunities. We are responding to this need by adapting our already successful C-level six-month coaching program – now focused exclusively on CEOs and CIOs. In this three-hour preview session, you will get a taste of the full six-month program while experiencing a highly effective and structured approach to executive and peer coaching.

You will walk away from this first session having new insights into how you work with your direct reports and you will have a stronger sense of areas you’d like to improve in, related to your ongoing work as a CEO or CIO. We do this through illuminating blind spots, building up weak areas, and amplifying your strengths.

Find out if “CEO or CIO Group Coaching” is right for you, and walk out with new tools in this dynamic stand-alone session for coaching your team and helping them coach their direct reports.

Jim McCarthy on The Core Protocols
Puppet Labs on NW Park (old office)

Great software comes from getting your team’s best ideas into the product. Jim McCarthy, who led the legendary turnaround of the Visual C++ group at Microsoft, left Microsoft in 1996 to create a team dynamics laboratory to figure out how to always create a create a high performance team.

The McCarthy lab has focused extensively on this challenge, and has produced 11 rich, precise protocols (called the Core) for making unanimous decisions, supporting quality thinking, strengthening design iterations, and incorporating feedback, emotions, nobility, and passion into products.

Learn about these protocols in this motivating, challenging talk. In just a few minutes, you can pick up the fundamentals of an entirely new class of tool.

• Do you notice too much discussion and arguing and would prefer the best ideas would just get implemented now? –Learn about the Decider Protocol which guarantees unanimous team decisions with accountability and moves the team forward with a bias toward action.

• Do you accept that it is vitally important that you get the opinions of others about the quality of work products but notice that it is consistently painful to give and receive feedback? – Learn about the Perfection Protocol which solves all the problems associated with criticism.

• Do you notice that dumb things consistently happen on your team and everyone seems to lack self-awareness to some degree, including you? – Learn about the Core Commitments which provide a team constitution about commitment and accountability to the team. And learn about the Personal Alignment Protocol which allows each team member to address self-awareness around courage, integrity, passion and other virtuous behaviors.

This event is free and is at our new location, Puppet Labs. It begins at 6:30 pm with pizza, sponsored by PNSQC (Many thanks to both Puppet Labs and PNSQC for supporting agile in Portland).

The program starts at 7:00 pm.

After the program you're invited to join us for a no-host gathering at a nearby brewpub for further discussion.

The Emerging Leadership Paradigm: How Portland Will Lead the Way
The MAC

Over the last 50 years the business environment has become more complex. The old paradigm of simply using fixed measures that predictably control outcomes is failing to produce the results they once did. New forces beyond the efficient flow of activity are becoming more significant.

PANELISTS: Norman Wolfe, Founder, Quantum Leaders Tom Sedory, Director of IT & Sustainability, Nike Danielle Forsyth, CEO & Co-Founder, Thetus Corporation Renee Spears, President & Founder, Rose City Mortgage David Garnand, Executive Director, College Housing NW

The new emerging paradigm moves us from a mechanistic orientation to one that views the organization as a living organism. This paradigm views organizations as an integral part of an eco-system, where purpose, meaning and relationships are important key drivers of success. These organizations are dynamic, responsive to ever-changing conditions, transparent and make a positive impact. Like newly planted seeds, a new paradigm needs soil to be nurtured and grown in. Portland’s unique culture provides the nutrients to make this the perfect location for companies to lead the way to a new world of business.

Attend this event to learn more about: Different strategies used by local companies who are exploring the shift to the new paradigm
How companies measure progress in strengthening relationships to customers, employees, and the environment Ways to leverage Portland’s unique culture to benefit your business

Leading in Context: Introduction to the Cynefin Framework
McMenamins Ringlers Pub

Have you ever wondered why some approaches work well in one context and not so well in others? In order to improve our chances for success, we need to understand the nature of the situation we are working with in order to take appropriate action. Failing to recognize the nature of the situation at hand results in misinformed decisions with potentially catastrophic consequences.

Cynefin is a sensemaking framework that helps people understand their context and situation in order to take appropriate action.

In this meetup we will review the basics of the Cynefin framework and discuss other options for continued learning.
