Careers Group: Coaching as a Career Accelerator

January 27, 2016

Coaching is widely used at senior levels in corporate organisations. Executive coach Max Landsberg and leadership specialist Declan Woods will aim to de-mystify the topic and demonstrate how coaching is used to support career advancement. They will discuss when to seek a coach, how to choose one and how to get the best from the relationship. They will also advise on getting the most out of mentoring.

Max Landsberg has been an executive coach for 25 years, alongside his career as an advisor on strategy and board level leadership. A former partner at Mckinsey, he moved to Heidrick & Struggles in 2003. In 2014 he moved to Korn Ferry as a Senior Partner to focus on CEO succession and leadership consulting. He has written several bestselling books on coaching, leadership, and motivation. He has a degree from Cambridge and an MBA from Stanford.

Declan Woods (MCCC 13) is the founder of ZPD Consulting, which helps leaders create better organisations. He is also Global Head, Standards and Accreditation, of the Association for Coaching. Previously, he worked for 20 years developing people and organisations. Declan was decorated for leadership in the New Years’ Honours List, following a career as an army officer. He has a degree in psychology from Cambridge, is a Registered Psychologist and an accredited Master Executive Coach. He has an executive MBA from Warwick.
