Members Speaker Series - Accelerating Leadership Effectiveness with Nelson Zagalsky, Ph.D. Certified Integral Coach at High-Tech Focus, Inc.

Accelerating Leadership Effectiveness

By Nelson Zagalsky, Ph.D.


In this informative and entertaining presentation, Dr. Nelson Zagalsky, an Integral Coach and  former corporate executive, shows how leaders can become as effective in dealing with management and leadership challenges at age thirty as they normally would only become at age fifty. His thesis is that a holistic behavioral coaching approach can achieve such turbocharged acceleration by removing the braking action of personality rooted problematic behaviors and the foundational competency gaps that one never quite got right in their first pass through Human Being 101. These include such competencies as emotional awareness and relational skills.


This engaging and interactive presentation will have the audience deeply engaged in


  • Looking at their Enneagram personality styles
  • Reflecting on their possible stereotypical problematic behaviors
  • Learning how to apply holistic coaching principles to helping advance leadership effectiveness


It will conclude with a case study that includes a description of practices that the audience can self-apply to help deal with a very common leadership challenge; avoiding being overwhelmed by multiple stakeholder demands. They will also learn about a website where they can read about practices that are known to be helpful for advancing personal development within their particular personality style.
