Lisle, Illinois ~ Understanding one's own beliefs, assumptions, perceptions and action is at the core of coaching others to achieve success, according to Edith and Charlie Seashore, who have nearly 80 years of experience working with corporations, foundations and governments around the world.

The Seashores will present "Triple Impact Coaching: Use-of-Self in the Coaching Process" from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 9 on the second floor of the Krasa Student Center on the campus of Benedictine University. The lecture is part of the Department of Management and Organizational Behavior's Contemporary Trends in Change Management Lecture Series.

The Triple Impact Coaching model provides leaders, managers, change agents and teams with the concepts, tools and examples they can apply in their daily work. At the core of Triple Impact Coaching is the Use-Of-Self, which focuses on understanding our beliefs, assumptions, perceptions and actions and how they impact our interactions with others.

Edith Whitfield Seashore is a past president of the National Training Laboratories (NTL) Institute and is a faculty member of the Johns Hopkins Fellows Program in Change Management. Charles Seashore, Ph.D., has worked as a consultant and trainer in corporations, health care, higher education and government.
