MEGA SESSION: Go Inside Facebook's Strategy to Grow, Innovate, and Engage

SHRM 2015 Annual Conference
Learn how one of the most innovative companies uses a coaching methodology to drive innovation, growth, and employee engagement.

Given Facebook's relentless focus on innovation, it is not surprising to find that not only are their products and features innovative, but so are their organizational practices. For example, there are six different types of coaching programs, each designed to meet the needs of different target audiences. As a result, one out of five has or is receiving some form of coaching as part of their development. Join Bill McLawhon, head of Executive Development at Facebook, and Thuy Sindell, President of Skyline's Coaching Division and a leadership coach to Facebook, to understand how they use a coaching methodology as a strategy for driving innovation, growth, and investing in its employees' success.
