Read an Excerpt

Excerpt from Introduction
In all periods of history, leaders have used coaches. They did not always use the term, but the best leaders have always had trusted advisers who could ask questions, give candid feedback, discuss concerns in confidence, and guide learning. Today's organizations, certainly the visionary ones, recognize this dimension of leadership and utilize it.

Maybe you are a leader thinking about using a coach to enhance your leadership. Maybe you belong to an organization that is considering hiring coaches to train managers to become internal coaches. In either case, this book will give you a feel for the art, the craft, and the power of this ancient, and contemporary, form of leadership development and support.

These dialogues are based on actual coaching assignments, with names and other identifying infor-mation changed. Some dialogues are based on a combination of coaching assignments. We wrote with the goal of portraying the sound and feel of coaching. These are not transcripts of actual sessions.
