Positive organizational psychology, with its focus on the identification and development of strengths, is a natural ally to executive development and leadership coaching. However, this approach is only just beginning to come to the attention of organizations and consequently, the research base for strength-based coaching is in its early stages of development. Strength-based Leadership Coaching in Organizations reviews strength-based approaches to positive leadership development and evaluates the evidence for their effectiveness, critically assesses their apparent distinctiveness and considers how strengths can be reliably assessed and developed in their organizational context. Strength-based Leadership Coaching in Organizations reviews key areas of leader and team development and describes a model of strengths development in organizations. It discusses the application of strength-based leadership coaching from the managerial and external perspective within the context of career stage, seniority, role challenges and organizational need in order to facilitate meaningful change. Finally, it covers the limitations of the strength-based approach to leadership development together with the challenges of integrating positive leadership development. It shows exactly what a strengths focus is and that there is increasing evidence that this approach does get results. Where other books focus on one model of identifying strengths, this book offers a balanced and critical examination, showing how to apply a positive strength-based approach.

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.

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.

Komplexe gruppendynamische Prozesse so einfach und nachvollziehbar darzustellen, dass sich konkrete Handlungsmöglichkeiten ableiten lassen: Dieses Ziel verfolgt Christine Thornton mit ihrem Buch. Coachs finden hier Anregungen für die praktische Arbeit mit Gruppen und Teams. Wesentlich ist dabei, welche Ziele eine Gruppe verfolgt, in welchem Umfeld sie agiert und wie die Mitgliederstruktur beschaffen ist. Je eingehender ein Coach sich mit diesen Faktoren beschäftigt, desto besser kann er seine Interventionen gestalten. Doch auch Führungskräften liefert das Buch Denkanstöße für Veränderungen in Unternehmen. Einer Untersuchung zufolge sind überhaupt nur 30 Prozent aller Veränderungsprozesse erfolgreich. Warum das nicht so bleiben muss und welche Maßnahmen wirklich Erfolg bringen, wird ebenfalls beleuchtet.

Become an effective, inspiring leader from the core of your BE-ing. Leadership is a powerful vehicle for your personal and spiritual growth. Within Transformational Leadership with Humility and Grace are Reflections, Contemplations and poignant Questions that will transform your leadership philosophy, strategy, relationships, communication and organizational culture. Carry this handbook with you throughout your day and your travels for focus, serenity, and inspiration! In times of organizational and economic stress, it's the best gift for your soul's equilibrium and sense of peace. We have been taught that good leaders become effective by honing their communication skills and demanding productivity. Masterful leadership that inspires transformation, however, is much more than skill development. It is a significant inner challenge, and you will know when and if you are ready to take it on. It will be a “calling,” or a deep soul yearning.Transformational leadership is about noticing those significant inner shifts, so that you become an effective, inspiring leader –inside and out. Who are you becoming as you increase your ability to lead? What is your daily discipline to keep you on track, your ego in check, and your values in focus? The process is less of “acquiring information and skills” and more of a “letting go” of what is getting in your way of expressing your authentic self.
