Real-Time Leadership: Find your winning moves when the stakes are high
The best leaders, in the biggest moments, know how to read the situation, respond in the best way possible, and move forward. As their coaches, you can too.

The hardest part of leadership is mastering the inevitable high-risk, high-stakes challenges. As leadership coaches we want to empower ourselves and our leaders to make the most of every moment. When the greatest leadership opportunity of their life comes along – what is a framework we can use to help them think through what matters most to them ?  Or, when they are confronted by their biggest threats, how can we help them overcome their stress default behaviors to be at their best during those crucial moments. 

It starts with overcoming your leadership reflexes and reactions to find the optimal response to any situation, which you can learn to do.

Dr. Kauffman will share the innovative new framework — MOVE — which equips both leaders and coaches to be at their best.  She will also weave this together with the Egon Zehnder survey of 1,000 CEOs with a combined annual revenue of nearly four trillion dollars. 

Carol is known globally as one of the top leaders in the field of coaching. Marshall Goldsmith named her the #1 Leadership coach in the world and Thinkers 50 shortlisted her as one of the top 8 coaches for her contribution as a world renown thought leader and coach.

She is an Assistant Professor at Harvard where she is the Founder of the Institute of Coaching and a Visiting Professor at Henley Business School. In addition, she supervises an international fleet of leadership coaches and created a Coach Approach training program with a global footprint. She has recently been named a Senior Advisor at Egon Zehnder.

In 2009 she was awarded $2,000,000 by the Harnisch Foundation to launch the Institute of Coaching, a community of 20,000 coaches. She also chairs the annual Coaching Conference sponsored by Harvard Medical School.

With over 40,000 hours of client contact and has been described as a lateral thinker who pushes the edges with a sense of humor and can disrupt someone out of their comfort zone. She works with C-level leaders to create the impact they want and to develop high trust, high performing teams.

On Track with Coaching at BNSF Railway

Founder and Principal, Sinha Solutions
The award-winning talent team at BNSF will share:
  • How to leverage coaching—with a modern twist--in leader development
  • A proven approach to using coaching for key transitions and targeted development
  • How to experience the benefits of targeted coaching in broad leadership development
  • An outside/inside view to the BNSF coaching practice and process
  • The value of building a team within the external coach team
Few industries combine the nostalgia of yesterday with the hope and promise of tomorrow as railroads do. Comprising more than 140,000 miles of track and employing more than 165,000 people, this $80 billion industry faces unique talent development challenges and opportunities — always and especially during the pandemic and great resignation.

BNSF Railway, whose history spans more than 170 years, is one of North America’s leading freight transportation companies, with a rail network of 32,500 route miles in 28 states and three Canadian provinces. BNSF is one of the top transporters of the products and materials that help feed, clothe, supply and power communities throughout America and the world. BNSF moves those goods more safely and efficiently, on significantly less fuel, with fewer emissions than the all-highway alternative.

Companies across all industries face unprecedented change. Many need to transform to remain relevant and viable. The challenge is that managing change and disruption is much easier said than done. The key to success lies in a company’s ability to engage leaders to help drive organizational transformation. In this session, you will learn how a 170-year-old company—rich in history and tradition—has leveraged leadership development broadly, and coaching specifically, as a strategic tool to develop leaders and evolve its culture.
