The first comprehensive guide to using executive coaching in organizations • Based on the authors’ rigorous original research with dozens of leading companies • Includes extensive case studies, examples of coaching tools, advice on measuring ROI, and much more The field of executive coaching is growing at an astonishing rate. Corporations are increasingly turning to coaching as an intervention, as it offers leaders and managers both on-the-job learning and built-in follow-up. Human resource and leadership development practitioners must wade through a wilderness of conflicting information about when to use coaching, how to do it well, and how to evaluate the cost-effectiveness and success of any coaching intervention. Executive Coaching for Results helps this critical leadership development technique come of age. This is not a how-to-coach book—there are already plenty of those—but rather a comprehensive guide on how to strategically use coaching to maximize development of talent and link the impact of coaching to bottom-line results. Underhill, McAnally, and Koriath draw on their rigorous original research with Fortune 1000 and Global 500 companies such as Dell, Sony, Johnson & Johnson, Disney, Unilever, Wal-Mart, and many others to cover topics like coaching as part of an overall leader­ship development strategy; typical activities and instruments used during coach­ing; costs of coaching; development of an internal coaching program; selection of the right coach for the job; the ROI of coaching; follow-up after coaching; and much more. Offering practical learning, best practices, and illuminating case studies, this is the first definitive guide to the effective use of executive coaching in the corporate environment.

The explosive growth of coaching over the past decade has been accompanied by comparable growth in coach training as well as in membership of professional bodies representing the industry. Yet philosophical and intellectual debates over executive coaching and its measurable value and outcomes appear limited in much of the existing literature. Many practitioners appear uncomfortable with the hard measurement of real return on investment, preferring softer, more qualitative approaches to evaluation. To challenge the self-perpetuating myth of value which has grown up around executive coaching, The Value of Executive Coaching critically explores the discourses surrounding this aspect of leadership development and considers different ways of thinking about its growth, development and application outside its established functionalist perspective. Using case study evidence, this exciting new text enhances our understanding of how and why the value proposition of executive coaching is perceived and perpetuated, and provides readers with the opportunity to explore some of the issues which influence perceptions of value. This book will be valuable reading for practising coaches and students on postgraduate coaching courses.
