The Power of Coaching

In the last year, coaching has asserted its value in new places - and to unprecedented levels. More than ever, our work is seen as critical in shaping careers and workplace cultures. What we do as coaches today will define the world we live in tomorrow. The question remains, however: what will we make of all this potential?

How can we apply coaching to change individuals, organizations, and even society for the better? This is your opportunity to learn directly from leading influencers and innovators, to co-create the future alongside them, and to realize the full power of coaching.

This is the only online event of its kind, where you can learn from coaching’s most respected and renowned thought leaders absolutely 100% FREE of charge.

What comes next for our
established and expanding
coaching industry?

Here’s What
People Are Saying

” If there was a way to score, 10 is the highest score it would not be enough for the live coaching session I attended at WBECS Pre-Summit. The thought leader authentically, energetically, and wholeheartedly demonstrated “being” the coach – simply and with so much love. Thank you does not seem like enough and, yet, trusting the lessons of this session, it is what my heart feels deeply.”

‘’WBECS Pre-Summit is one of those things that because they actually make the information digestible and because they bring out the top leaders and because they continue to challenge the way that we think, but they also continue to challenge the way that they deliver information. It's actually one of the best things that I've done when it comes to ongoing leadership training. So you can try it for yourself by joining the Summit. What have you got to lose?’’

Marc Wolfe
