Data coach – Power of Coaching for Data Leaders

Virtual Meet-up – Wednesday 30th March 1pm

In a time where expert senior data leadership is needed now more than ever in all kinds of organisations, we’re still finding a gap between an organisation’s understanding of what data leadership is, and those who could do the job but don’t feel adequately prepared.

Why? Because asking for help may be interpreted as a sign that you aren’t “the” expert. But that’s wrong…everyone needs guidance, support, and a friendly ear, from the C-suite to the new hire. Coaching for Data Leaders helps address many of the challenges you may face, whether it be technical know-how, how to present your data strategy to the board, or just having an expert voice to share ideas, and experiences with. Having a Data Coach can narrow the gap. The panel will be discussing the challenges, the reasons why data coaching is beneficial and why it’s so important right now.
