According to a recent study, there is a 40% failure rate among executives in the U.S. today. To combat the difficulties inherent in assuming high-level corporate roles companies are using new tools to help executives achieve maximum effectiveness, including the hiring of an executive coach. This unique book, written by a trained psychologist and executive coach with decades of experience as a business executive, offers a step-by-step guide to the practice of executive coaching. Using actual case studies, the author builds a multidimensional approach to coaching; clients are encouraged to look at multiple forces in their lives, including the Individual and the Organization, Unconscious Forces, Multi-Level Forces, and their Use of Self. Examining each force then guides the executive coach in joint goal setting, commitment to a coaching contract, meeting objectives, evaluating outcomes, and concluding the coaching process. Written specifically for graduate students--of applied psychology and related disciplines--who wish to practice executive coaching, this text will enlighten anyone in business who would like to use executive coaching to improve his or her organization.

Discover the key to becoming an extraordinary coach. Coaching is more than simply learning a process and set of skills. Exceptional coaches draw on their professional experience, knowledge of organizationally relevant topics, strong helping skills, coaching-specific competencies, and most important, their ability to use their own intuition in the service of the client. Becoming an Exceptional Executive Coach is the first book that brings all of these elements together to guide readers in developing their own personal model of coaching. Beginning with a self-assessment, readers will examine the core content areas crucial in any coach’s work, from engagement and goal setting to needs assessment, data gathering, feedback, and development planning—and then learn how to combine that knowledge with the unique perspective they bring to the table as individuals in order to achieve maximum coaching effectiveness. Each chapter includes a case study that brings the practice of coaching to life. Tools include charts, development plans, contracts, and more, plus ongoing discussion of the role of coaching in organizational contexts.

No company has ever succeeded simply because it has brilliant individuals in its ranks - in fact many have failed because they have not succeeded in getting great talent to work together as a team. Every single South African business lives or dies by its ability to get its people to work together, in constantly changing teams, towards achieving the common goals of the company. Team Coaching: Artists at Work shows how the right coaching interventions can build skills in individuals so that they can become effective team players in a variety of work situations. The book is, not surprisingly, a team effort. A group of top South African coaches got together to share everything they had used individually when coaching teams. This pooling of best practice was so exciting, the outcome so much more than anticipated, that they decided to write this book together. This is not a DIY manual, nor is it a bible. Corporate teams are often temporary and shifting in nature with continuous restructuring, promotions, new people moving in, others resigning. Flexibility and creativity are critical. That's precisely where team coaching interventions come in, to increase individual self-awareness, enhance people's ability to adapt to the styles of others, and create cohesion and commitment of how to work together. That's when the real people power of an organisation starts to make itself felt, when talented individuals become effective team members. Coaches are artists, who bring their facilitation talents and tools to the team to make this happen. This is a book for business and team leaders who would like to turn a collection of outstanding individuals into an unbeatable team. Coaching is one of the fastest growing professions and this book contributes to wider understanding of what potential coaching offers not only for business teams but also for societal transformation.
