The Coaching Organization
A Strategy for Developing LeadersBook - 2007
The Coaching Organization provides an organizational perspective on how coaching can become part of an organization's culture. The book offers "best practices" that will help organizations deploy developmental coaching on a large scale to drive leadership and employee effectiveness. The popularity of coaching in organizations is enormous. However, coaching initiatives are often deployed on an ad hoc and unmanaged basis and as such often yield disappointing results. The Coaching Organization provides a guide for the strategic management of coaching initiatives, including executive coaching, internal coaching, coaching by managers and peer coaching, so as to maximize their impact and value. Using case studies from organizations such as Whirlpool, Wachovia, Children's Hospital Boston and Citizens Financial Group, as well as entrepreneurial ventures the authors, respected academics in the fields of employee and leadership development, describe how both large and small organizations leverage relationship based, on the job learning and offer insights that executives, line managers, human resource and organizational effectiveness professionals as well students will find actionable.
