Book Description

Today’s coaches are challenged with the recurring task of weaving threads from several disciplines into a tapestry that is fit for purpose in helping their clients learn and succeed. In this sense, the coach has to become a discriminating eclectic, developing a keen sense of judgment to select which threads are best woven into the fabric and those that it would be better to simply throw away. Coaching for Leadership is intended to be a cherished companion in that learning journey presented by the world’s greatest coaches, including: Marshall Goldsmith, Paul Hersey, Beverly Kay, Daivd Ulrich and many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read! October 2, 2014
Format:Hardcover
This is a must read. The style of the book with the case studies ensuring the ready not only knows and understands the content, but sees how it can be applied across sectors, if, for me the most useful element. And any reference to using 360 feedback effectively is always a good read! Dr Clare Beckett-McInroy EdD CPCC PCC MAC
