Essays on Coaching from Experts in the Field
Over the last decade, the concept of coaching has enjoyed increasing popularity. In fact, some experts predict that some form of coaching will soon be used in every corporate office and small business across the country. The editors of Coaching for Leadership: How The World's Greatest Coaches Help Leaders Learn are among the experts who believe the practice of coaching will continue to gain importance, and they view the present time as a "critical time when leaders and managers need to learn about good coaching."
The book is an attempt to bring together the best thinking of today's most well-regarded coaches and leaders. To assist readers, the book has been structured into five parts: Foundations of Coaching, Role and Identity, Moments and Transitions, Practices and Techniques, and Situations. Each section is filled with essays by some of today's best executive coaches, including James Belasco, Chip Bell, Beverly Kaye, Richard Leider, and Barry Posner.
This is an ideal reference for anyone who embraces the concept of coaching in their work - it can be used for inspiration when looking for an approach or tool to deal with a specific situation, or it can be read cover-to-cover for a more complete understanding of good coaching.
