Bermuda businesses could benefit from executive coaching

There is a lack of awareness about the importance of executive and life coaching from businesses and individuals in Bermuda.
That was the conclusion from participants at the 'Bermuda Executive Coaching Roundtable' which was held by the Columbia Coaching Alliance at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess hotel on Friday.
 
The event was hosted by Human Factor International executive and transcultural leadership coach and managing director Jeffrey Jones, Dr. Terrence Maltbia, Professor at Teacher's College Columbia University, Margaret D'Onofrio, executive coach and founder of D'Onofrio Consulting Partners, and Fatima Doman, executive coach at Columbia Coaching Alliance.
 
Among the topics up for debate during the session were confidentiality and anonymity, the impact of the recession on the executive and life coaching industry and the biggest issues and challenges facing the sector in Bermuda.
 
The event, which focused on the ever-changing role of the executive in today's rapidly evolving global business climate, was an opportunity to network and learn from the key thought leaders and senior business executives present.
 
The members of the Columbia Coaching Alliance were on the Island to take part in the eighth International Transformative Learning Conference, 'Reframing Social Sustainability in a Multicultural World', at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess last week. The conference was sponsored by the Columbia University Teachers College, Department of Organisation and Leadership, Adult Learning and Leadership Program.
