The Coaching Effect Summit

About the Event

What is the Coaching Effect Summit?

The Coaching Effect Summit was created for executives, coaches, teachers, and leaders who refuse to be average. Our dynamic sessions will guide you as we strip away the archaic leadership techniques you’ve been taught, and set you up with the tools you need to forge ahead as a truly high-performing leader. World-renowned speakers will challenge your thinking in areas such as psychology, diversity, team performance, culture, and more in a series of virtual sessions across two days.

The EcSell Institute team will be with you each step of the way to ensure what you’re learning becomes a catalyst for professional and personal change. You will leave with a clear understanding of what sets the highest-performing leaders apart, an effective plan for how to become one, and a network of other high-caliber leaders to continue your journey alongside you.

So it's a virtual conference? What makes it unique?

Conferences can be great developmental opportunities, but they are often filled with motivational “fluff.” How many times have you heard an impactful speaker that made you feel starry-eyed, just to forget their message the next day? Your life, as a result, stays the same.

EcSell Institute is a research organization, which means we don’t allow motivational fluff. Our programming is designed to catapult your professional and personal life into a season of change. The knowledge and inspiration you will glean from our speakers will deeply affect your journey - not just today, not this week, but for years to come. This is The Coaching Effect.

Who Should Attend?
Any leader, from any industry or company size, who is responsible for leading, coaching, or managing a team to perform at a higher level.
What is the ROI?

The ability for leaders to learn how to become a better coach for those on their teams has never been more critical to an organization's bottom line. EcSell Institute research shows that the top 20% of coaches bring in $4.3million more per leader per year than the bottom 80%.

Leaders who play a demotivating role within their organization lead teams that perform 9% lower than coaches who are highly effective at motivating their teams, equaling a $2.1million decrease per leader per year.
