The high rate of corporate change and the expectation of short-term performance put those who lead organisations under considerable pressure to produce results. But producing sustained results cannot be achieved by simply driving the bottom line. It requires that those who work for a company at any level be focused and motivated, and this necessitates leadership of a high order. Professional coaching can help the individual at the top develop this skill. This book describes the current state of evolution of external coaching; it assesses the future demand for coaching as a consultancy service to senior executives and discusses the ways in which that demand may be met. Finally, it offers a model of top executive professional coaching against which buyers may benchmark the services offered to them.

Descrizione libro Palgrave MacMillan, United Kingdom, 2001. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 2001 ed.. 236 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Leadership is currently one of the most hotly discussed topics in business. This is the first book to not only identify the characteristics of successful leadership but to show how these qualities can be developed. The Reflecting Glass surveys the field of executive coaching, including its origins, the theoretical framework underpinning it, the forms it can take and the value it adds. Based on the experience of two leading practitioners and with contributions from other key players it provides a detailed methodology for working one-to-one with people at the top of organisations in order to help them become fully effective. Executive coaching has experienced exponential growth over the last five years but as yet there has been little critical appraisal of the activity. This book provides that critique. By describing and benchmarking good practice, The Reflecting Glass will be a valuable tool for those in leadership positions considering executive coaching for themselves, as well as the HR professional.
