A Flagship Event for Experienced Executive Coaches

ESMT Berlin and KDVI 13th Coaching Colloquium 

Human Sustainability: Reflections in Leadership Coaching

Continuing the tradition of exploring difficult moments in executive coaching, we are getting together to explore the often-neglected topic of Human Sustainability. 

During the Colloquium we will be working with real cases presented by real coaches and commented upon by fellow professionals. We will continue building on our previous experience of creating a real coaching development laboratory with an opportunity to learn and to contribute to the learning of others. Participants are expected to maintain confidentiality of the discussions and will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement with regard to the cases explored during the Colloquium.


To take part in the Colloquium, participants need to submit a short paper describing a difficult, exciting, or unusual leadership coaching case from their practice and a separate description of their way of handling that particular situation. The “Human Sustainability: Reflections in Executive Coaching” theme gives the authors an opportunity to reflect on their own sustainability in a coaching relationship or to explore challenges associated with working with executives (un)concerned about the impact of the workplace on their and others’ subjective well-being. We specifically invite cases that can reflect the coach’s struggles, temptations, anxieties, hopes, and choices. As usual, we at ESMT are more interested in finding out what is really taking place, rather than what some of our colleagues fantasize about.
