Conference Theme

At the turn of the previous century the advent of automation driving efficiency and speed propelled the Industrial Revolution. It was a revolution that ruthlessly saw machines overpowering muscle.

Decades later the human mind, aided by quantum leaps in computing power, retook mastery over machines. The Knowledge Revolution had begun. Unlike the earlier revolutions it, though, is one that is not destined to last long given that advances in cloud computing, robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence are driving the new future. It is a future that threatens our present way of thinking and requires us to make a paradigm shift in the way that we must harness and use these new technologies.

Can coaches remain complacent that the cyber-physical world will have little or no impact on our way of coaching? If we were to embrace these new technologies could we use them to improve our mastery of coaching? How might philosophies and concepts like self-awareness, fulfillment, love and compassion that remain integral to coaching fit in this new world?
