In association with the October MPPAW meeting (5:30 social hour)
Courtyard Hotel, 1500 Washington Ave (near the University)
- Attendance is encouraged by all graduate students in psychology.
- Free admission. Advance notice of attendance to MPPAW would be helpful but not required in order to plan the briefing.
The graduate student briefing will provide an overview of executive coaching for graduate students in psychology. Executive coaching is a core practice area for I-O psychologists. This session will discuss coaching definitions, the coaching process, and the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to be an effective coach to business leaders. There also will be some discussion of the career opportunities and challenges in I-O psychology practice related to coaching.
This is a special opportunity for psychology graduate students to learn about applied careers in I-O psychology practice and to preview how coaching can be included in a practice career. It is an excellent introduction to the field of Executive Coaching and a great opening session to the MPPAW featured speaker that night: Dr. Vicki Vandaveer speaking on The Important Role and Obligation of I-O Psychology in Advancing the Practice and Science of Executive Coaching.
