Daniel Goleman identifies coaching as the most effective management style, and yet the least practiced. Coaching is a way of helping members of your team solve the real problems they are facing, rather than the surface ones. Coaching promotes self-sufficiency and can significantly improve individual and team performance. In today's business environment where employees have a lot of choice about where they work, coaching can create a deep manager-employee relationship built around trust, and gives you the capability to develop your team.
In this panel, we'll hear from three perspectives on coaching: an expert coach, a manager successfully deploying coaching and an HR leader. We'll cover:
VP People Development,
Gravity Payments + Host of Silent Superheroes
James Pratt has been managing teams and training managers for 20 years. James has built teams around the world and on behalf of tech companies big and small, including giants like Microsoft and HTC.

As we enter an age of a purpose driven workforce, managers must adapt to connect authentically with their teams. Current the VP of People Operations at Seattle startup Socrata, James brings his expertise with fast moving, distributed, multi-function and multi-cultural teams to companies looking to develop managers as a strategic asset. Most passionate when working 1:1 with managers who are hungry to grow and lead, James helps managers lean on their strengths, manage from their authentic selves and connect with and motivate their teams.

Chief Relationships Officer,
I am an explorer of the most exciting terrain in the world: Your Dreams. I do this with the educated skill of an ICF-certified professional coach. With over a thousand hours of partnering with clients, I respect the genius of each individual and enterprise now more than ever. Coaching is my purpose for living and I am grateful to live each day awakening to be the cause of life on purpose.
I am a connector with more than 30 years in hospitality, wine and sales. In my experience I have brought people together to start high profile restaurants, luxury product launches, new distribution companies, specialty teams to meet the needs of key individuals, accounts and companies. As a leader, I adopted the practices of diversity, empowerment and autonomy. The success of those individuals and teams over time has resulted in promotions, expanded leadership, goal & revenue attainment and an ability to pivot during change, whether planned or unexpected. The most important contribution, though, was to witness people becoming themselves more fully, authentically and purposefully.
Reflective Management delivers management training at all levels of an organization to build future-ready high performance teams with strong culture.
