Effective leadership coaching can drastically improve performance. However, good coaching is more than just passing on your own business experience. Developing authentic leadership through coaching is about changing deeply personal, often unconscious, elements of a manager's behaviour. In Leadership Coaching, Graham Lee explains to coaches how to be more sophisticated in their understanding of psychology and how to develop the skills needed to work on both the psychological and the practical elements of improving managerial performance. Leadership Coaching sets out a five-stage coaching model, and works through each of these stages in detail, highlighting the skills that coaches require and the issues they are likely to face. It also offers HR managers sponsoring coaching an understanding of the competencies necessary for effective coaching and provides a standard procedure for buying in coaching services. Supported by a wide range of case studies throughout the book, this is valuable reading for both in-house and external coaches looking to effectively develop leaders and managers in organizations.

In this book, some of the world's leading scholars come together to describe their thinking and research on the topic of the psychology of leadership. Most of the chapters were originally presented as papers at a research conference held in 2001 at the Kellogg School of Management of Northwestern University. The contributions span traditional social psychological areas, as well as organizational theory; examining leadership as a psychological process and as afforded by organizational constraints and opportunities. The editors' goal was not to focus the chapters on a single approach to the study and conceptualization of leadership but rather to display the diversity of issues that surround the topic. Leadership scholars have identified a host of approaches to the study of leadership. What are the personal characteristics of leaders? What is the nature of the relation between leaders and followers? Why do we perceive some people to be better leaders than others? What are the circumstances that evoke leadership qualities in people? Can leadership be taught? And so on. The contributions to this book examine these important questions and fall into three categories: conceptions of leadership, factors that influence the effectiveness of leadership, and the consequences and effects of leadership on the leader. All in all, the chapters of this volume display part of a broad spectrum of novel and important approaches to the study of the psychology of leadership. We hope that they are equally useful to those who are or would be leaders and to those who study the topic. As recent events have served to remind us, it is too important a topic to be ignored by psychologists.

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.

Manfred Kets de Vries, Professor of Leadership Development, INSEAD: “The author takes us on an exciting journey to explain what coaching is all about, providing us with a roadmap that is second to none. Anyone interested in better understanding what coaching is all about, would do well to have a serious look at this book.” David Megginson, Professor of Human Resources Development, Sheffield Hallam University: “From a vivid personal story just before the first chapter to the fascinating mass of data in the appendices, this book is a captivating read about the concrete particulars of coaching and the theoretical perspectives we can use to make sense of them. Erik de Haan makes a case for relational coaching and prescribes clearly what his research and the tradition within which it is embedded can tell practitioners in the field.” Bruce E. Wampold, Professor of Counseling Psychology, University of Wisconsin: “I am thrilled that there is a coaching book that emphasizes the coachee and the relationship. In Relational Coaching, Erik de Haan places the emerging profession on a strong foundation that emphasizes the interpersonal aspects of the endeavour.” Relational Coaching is a radically different way of looking at coaching that puts the relationship, from the perspective of the coachee, at the centre. Exploring both age-old tradition and reliable studies in recent decades, Relational Coaching gives the modern executive coach ten commandments to help improve his or her practice. The book demonstrates how each of these commandments is underpinned by sound quantitative research. The book begins by giving a complete overview of the profession and the latest developments in coaching. The second part of the book presents new quantitative and qualitative research into effects and experiences of coaching. Part three contains an introduction to the activities that make a good coach and the mechanisms used to verify coaches’ understanding of their profession. Other topics covered include training, accreditation, supervision and recommended literature.

Gender diversity and cross-cultural, cross-generational working in organisations has led to new challenges for leadership, which many companies are solving through executive coaching. This unique leadership coaching book is written by practitioners for practitioners and managers wanting to get the best from individuals in leadership roles. It brings together the authors' experience as psychologists, neuroscientists and senior level executive coaches to analyse the neuroscience behind behavioural change. The authors present the latest views on leadership, executive coaching and an introduction to the basic concepts of how the brain works to enable managers and coaches to work more confidently, and with greater focus. A series of coaching case histories are accompanied by neuroscience commentaries that offer full explanations of how to select a coaching intervention that will engage different parts of the brain. The cases are categorised by the technique used and the area of the brain the tool accesses, making it easier to understand what type of coaching tool would be useful for a specific situation, and also what type of technique might be used to engage a different part of the brain if the first approach is ineffective.

"When was the last time you lifted up your head? To succeed in business you need to be more than an effective manager. Organizations are looking for people who are both engaged and can achieve results. They want leaders, at all levels: people who lift up their heads. Becoming a successful leader means meeting some key challenges. These challenges span from what are often called 'hard' business-focused issues, such as vision and strategy, to 'soft' personal challenges, such as personality and confidence. The leadership challenges are remarkably uniform across sectors and levels. This book presents the crucial 18 challenges that have been distilled from research and practical experience into what real leaders face in their daily work. After each challenge is described, there is a simple self-assessment process to allow you to see where you are in relation to that challenge. Finally, practical guidance shows you how to go about boosting your ability to meet that challenge and excel as a leader."

Kultur ist nicht greifbar, sagen die Einen. Es gibt einfach viel zu viele Theorien und Definitionen zur Kultur, sagen die Anderen. Dieses Lehrbuch nimmt beide Meinungen ernst und zeigt, dass der Kulturbegriff auch deshalb so spannend ist, weil er uns immer wieder zu einer Stellungnahme gegenüber unserer Wirklichkeit, unserer Entwicklung und unserem Denken und Handeln auffordert. Kultur, gerade weil sie so viele Facetten hat, lehrt uns, wie wir grundlegende Fragen zum menschlichen Leben aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven stellen – und uns dann nicht mit der erstbesten Antwort zufrieden geben. Dieses Lehrbuch Kultur bietet dementsprechend nicht eine, sondern viele kompakte Einführungen ins Thema. Es richtet sich an Leser, die sich für die unterschiedlichen fachlichen Entwicklungen, aber auch für fachübergreifende Zusammenhänge und die praktischen Anwendungsmöglichkeiten kultureller Kompetenz interessieren. Die Beiträge wollen neugierig machen auf mehr. Fast 40 Expertinnen und Experten bieten dafür Einstiegs- und Vertiefungspunkte. Die Reflexionsaufgaben lenken den Blick immer wieder auf zentrale Fragen: Kultur als Lupe. Dieses Lehrbuch ermöglicht mit seinem systematischen Aufbau den überfachlichen Austausch auf einem hohen und dennoch auch für Novizen oder Fachfremde verständlichen wissenschaftlichen Niveau. Damit kann es sowohl für das Selbststudium als auch als Lehrmaterial für eine umfassende Einführung in die Kulturwissenschaften und -praktiken genutzt werden.
