Show synopsis This is the book that reveals the best practices in coaching leaders. It does so through essays from 50 top coaches, including Ken Blanchard, Michael Hammer, Sally Helgesen, Frances Hesselbein, Beverly Kaye, Jim Kouzes, C.K. Prahalad, Noel Tichy, David Ulrich, and many other leaders in the field of leadership coaching. Along the way, these best-of-breed coaches reveal their core philosophies, critical capabilities, and secrets to their success. As our 50 top coaches suggest, there is no one best coach. And different coaches have different areas of expertise along the five distinct categories of business-oriented coaching today (behavioral, leadership development, career/life/transitions, organizational change, and strategy). But there are approaches that work within the five distinct categories. This book captures those approaches. The book also includes in-depth chapters on selecting the right coach and maximizing the impact of the coaching engagement; latest trends and findings from an exclusive research study on coaching; research on the ongoing "ROI of coaching" debate; and practical checklists, assessments, tips, and tools for those interested in the art and practice of leadership coaching.
