Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Guiding readers not only in mentoring others but also in building one's own leadership skills, Harkavy, CEO and "head coach" of Building Champions International, draws on years of experience mentoring clients in business and in their lives as a whole. The most successful sections of the book deal with less traditional business subjects, such as seeing the big picture of your own life and developing vision and mission. Though Harkavy's clients often want him to simply fix their business problems, the book's central section emphasizes the importance of a holistic approach. He walks the reader through a strategic progression, from "finding your life" to refining your business vision and business plan. The most concrete section is on priority management, where Harkavy teaches his readers to stop reacting to the issues in their lives and focus on proactively accomplishing their goals. Using a handy Daily Routine Time Blocking Schedule, Harkavy teaches readers to divide up their day so that they're always maximizing their time on high-value activities. While the introductory section of this book occasionally slips into the abstract, the latter half provides enough concrete tools to make this book worthwhile. (Apr.)

Format: Hardcover
Would you like to help your team members become more effective, and enjoy their work and personal lives more? Daniel Harkavy teaches you how to do just that by becoming an effective coaching leader. The key to his method is modeling the qualities and behaviors you want to instill in others. To be a coaching leader (and not a mere manager), you need conviction, courage and honesty. By embracing listening and learning, and considering what matters in your life, you can successfully coach people to progress by helping them define their own "Core Four" levels. People who develop a life plan and a business vision, and who manage their priorities, can see how their work contributes to their happiness and sense of purpose. Then, based on their vision statements, they can set clear, purposeful goals that are specific enough to be operational. getAbstract applauds Harkavy's systematic approach to coaching employees and ultimately adding value to your business.

Each of us has had bosses of varying ability, approach to their job, and interest in us or the company they work for. Face it; some of them you would work very hard for and others you never want to see or talk to again. Which manager did you enjoy more? Which made you work seem like something special rather than endless drudgery? This book shows you how to become the kind of boss that makes life better for everyone. Daniel Karkavy calls this approach the coaching-leader. He has his own executive coaching practice and shares his approach with his clients in this book.

He presents his material in twelve chapters divided into three parts. First, he explains what he means by "coaching-leader" and what the benefits of the approach are. In part 2 he takes you through his "Core Four" process. Basically, you create your Life Plan first so you are clear what matters to you most. Second, you write a Business Vision so you understand its connection to your Life Plan and what you want to accomplish at work. This is followed by a Business Plan so you structure the vision with a practical approach to work. Now that you have these three parts completed you are ready to deal with the pressing issues of setting priorities and dealing with pressing issues. You will see clearly what needs to be dealt with, what should be delegated, and what is irrelevant. The key is that you also teach this method to each member of your team and coach them through their own implementation of the process.

The third part is about the practical application of this method as teacher and coach including the tools you should use to achieve your aims.

This is a pretty good book. The writing is somewhat clunky at times and a tad repetitive, but the ideas are good, its heart is in a great place, and I think it can help anyone become a better and more effective leader.

The methodology in this book will change how you see your work and give you the tools to be a better and more purposeful leader. I'm coached by the author's firm, Building Champions, and their process allows you to take a step back and view your work (and life) in 4 step approach that is really wonderful. Check it out!

Started out really good but I seemed to get bogged down two-thirds of the way through it (It may be just me). I plan to finish reading it and review previous chapters.

Most books on coaching start with defining what coaching is all about and then extolling the benefits of being a coach.
I like the approach of Daniel Harkavy at the beginning of the book which is compelling - that is to live out our purpose at work, especially on how leaders must start to lead. I am sold to the principle of coach to lead, not the other way round.
The motive of coaching must be dealt first - not to make money out of developing people through coaching. In the words of Daniel Harkavy, it is "discovering your vocational purpose. I really like the illustration mentioned in the book about the fact that in most organizations, team member development takes a back seat when the organization achieves success - no more time for development of people.
Lastly, the Core Four Success Puzzle provides the strong framework to the book. Without it, this book is incomplete and loses its effective impact.

I did appreciate the importance of having a life plan, although fluid, needs to be followed. Thank you for your insights. The book is well written.
