Registration for this event has closed.

On November 18, 2019, IESE´s Barcelona Campus will welcome senior executive coaches, scholars and HR professionals for the 4th INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVE COACHING SYMPOSIUM, organized by the IESE Executive Coaching Unit.This year’s symposium will be devoted to “Nurturing Purpose” and, as the title suggests, we will explore different pathways to foster purpose and meaning in the workplace. The lines between personal and professional life are extremely blurred nowadays and people’s identity is entrenched in their work more than ever. Meaning, calling and purpose allow for authentic and full lives, where work is aligned with values. This is why the symposium revolves around the question:How can coaching cultivate meaning and purpose at work?
