Overview

This book is destined to make an impact on the leadership styles and cultures of the leaders who read and apply this transformational approach. It will be an invaluable investment in developing contemporary leadership competencies in leading the three different generations working side-by-side in our organizations. Connecting with people to discover what makes them "tick" is a rich and underdeveloped source of genuine influence and power. Transformational Coaching provides the framework for creating this deeper level of trust and mutual support.

From the Author

In the years I have worked with leaders and their teams to create high-performance, no leaders have been more powerful and effective with people than the ones who have decided to become a coach. Shifting both mindset and skillset from being "The Boss" to being "The Coach" is one of the most powerful transformations a leader can make as they develop their capacity to lead.

THE BOSS pushes people for results, THE COACH lifts people to higher level of performance; THE BOSS tells people what to do, THE COACH asks questions to see what people feel should be done; THE BOSS unwittingly triggers insecurity, THE COACH consciously triggers creativity; THE BOSS knows the answers, THE COACH seeks the answers; THE BOSS wants to achieve compliance, THE COACH inspires commitment; THE BOSS is focused only on results, THE COACH balances focus on process and performance; THE BOSS tries to get the most from people, THE COACH works to get the best from people.
