Coaching for New Leadership
Sunny Stout-Rostron, Executive Coach, Consultant and Author, takes you through an experiential coaching and leadership session. In this dynamic and experiential session, Dr Sunny Stout-Rostron will put you through your paces to discover the leader in yourselves. As people look to their leaders worldwide for more accountability, integrity and authenticity, coaching seems to be one of the ways in which corporations are charting their way forward, pioneering a new way of working. But it requires a shift in how leaders “be” leaders, and how coaches coach leaders, and how both inspire leadership in others. Thinking about thinking. i.e. the coaching conversation, involves reflecting on and changing the reasoning behind our actions, and allowing for seeing problems and solutions in new ways – that is where new leadership has a role to play.
During the last few years, Sunny has conducted a series of interviews to look at the impact of coaching on leadership that aimed at large-scale systemic change. What has emerged is the vital need for bold, visionary leadership to shape our future; not just the future of South Africa’s organisations and institutions, but also our increasingly complex and inter-dependent cultures and societies.
Sunny will share challenges leadership coaching faces globally − and the need for independent thinking to create societal change. She will help you to think through your own tipping points for change, tapping into your own gifts and strengths as leaders no matter what your walk of life. From her talk and her series of coaching exercises, Sunny will help you to get the best from yourself and others.
Emergent Trends in Leadership Coaching

Sunny interviewed eminent consultants, leaders, and practitioners worldwide who are using coaching to manage and develop people, to educate leaders in their business schools, or to introduce systemic coaching interventions within their client organisations. An engaging and dynamic speaker, she will share with us how coaching is positively affecting some of the substantial organisational, economic, and political issues of our times, particularly with regard to leadership, and the common emergent themes for leadership going forward.
