    Executive Coaching Skills Workshop 

    Please join us Virtually for an our first Skills Workshop of this year!

    In this session, we share a framework of different types of coaching that are typically used in organizations.  Understanding and using this framework can help you provide guidance to leaders on the suitability of coaching as an intervention, help with matching executives with a coach, and preparing for chemistry meetings and selecting a coach. We introduce the concept of coach maturity and the various dimensions along which coaches evolve.  We examine the use and benefits of competency frameworks for coaches and explore the arguments for going beyond competencies to encompass the development of capacities and capabilities in coaches.  Finally, we draw parallels between leadership development and coach development.

    NYU Wasserman Center

    The Wasserman Center for Career Development is New York University’s central career development resource, providing services and support to undergraduate students, graduate and graduate certificate students, postdocs, and alumni with a bachelor’s, master’s, graduate certificate, or doctoral degree from nearly every NYU school. In the past, Metro has partnered with this center to host its in-person events, and we are happy to be welcomed back for our in-person events this year!

    We will try to livestream the event as well, so if you are not in NYC you do not need to miss out! We do not guarantee it will be flawless, but hope to have it as an option to any of our members who cannot physically attend! More details to come.

    IMPORTANT: NYU's Vaccination Policy

    In order to attend this lovely event, we have to align with the below protocols set by NYU. Click here for more information.

    Vaccination Verification Process

    To access METRO events all attendees must have proof of COVID vaccination status or exemption status verified within the NYU system prior to arrival. All current METRO members will receive an email from NYU with a form to enter your information and upload proof of vaccination. Please submit as soon as possible as processing takes 3-5 business days. Once approved you will need to download the NYU app and complete Violet Go to generate a pass to show to security upon entering NYU premises. The pass gives access for all future events. 

    For non-members the NYU policy has two routes to verification:pre-approval and same-day verification. We suggest pre-approval as the easiest route but this requires all guests and non-members to register for the event 14+ days in advance. We will submit a list of non-members to NYU two weeks before the event. You will receive an email to upload information about 1 week prior to the event and then can complete the Violet Go app on event day to access NYU premises.  

    If registering less than a week before the event then you can visit the on-site vaccination check station at the Jeffrey S. Gould Welcome Center (50 West 4th street) which is open from 8 am to 6 pm. You will need to bring an id and proof of vaccination after which you will receive a printed vaccination verification receipt good for one week. Note this site is 15-20 minute walking distance from the career center and may be busy so plan accordingly if you desire to attend cocktails and happy hour. 

    Note anyone registering less than 5 days before the event may experience issues with on-site vaccination. METRO will try its best to coordinate with NYU officials to get you in their system but can't guarantee they will verify your status before your status as an attendee is uploaded.
