Overview

Why is coaching in organisations growing in popularity? Why do organisations need a coaching culture? The answer for many organisations is the search for competitive advantage and success in an ever changing world.

The word coach is derived from the method of horse drawn transport – which was the quickest way to get from A to B. Today, the word has come to mean, in many quarters, an intervention that facilitates an individual unlocking their full potential. The sole purpose of this business book is to enable you to ‘make a difference’ in your organisation; continuing the tradition of helping people to get from A to B more quickly.

Business coaching is now a global phenomenon with billions spent on interventions. Yet most of this money is wasted due to a lack of focus on what works and what doesn’t – organisations keep making the same expensive mistakes. This book will help you to make sure that you don’t follow this trend.

Unlocking the potential of coaching in an organisational context is difficult. The importance of a fully engaged and motivated workforce is acknowledged yet rarely achieved. A team coaching culture offers a way forward to releasing the power of employee potential and encouraging discretionary effort and commitment. By understanding the complexities involved in developing an organisational coaching culture, including coaching assessment, the challenges and barriers, you will be ready and prepared to help your organisation begin or refresh its coaching journey.

The Secrets of Organisational Coaching by Dr Paul Turner brings both coaching knowledge and coaching practise together and will help you develop a strategic blue-print and route map for coaching and mentoring success. The18 Chapters contain ideas, insights and inspiration, including:

• Coaching - 10 Key Insights

• A Coaching Model for Line Managers

• The Key Ingredients of a Coaching Culture

Read on and discover strategies, models and tools to help you make coaching a success in your workplace.

    Now here is a book worth providing some feedback. The author is well credentialed, and knows of what he speaks. He gives credible citations for his conceptional views and deductions concerning the various aspects of what is coaching, and what is not. I was surprised to find an assessment guide which is meant to help review my firm’s progress in the areas of coaching culture, relationship building capability, coaching skills, coaching processes and coaching outputs. Very nice, haven’t seen this in any other books. Highly recommended.

    It never occurred to me that many leading business coaches came from the sporting world. We can learn a lot about coaching from these people, and the author explains why so many of the top business coaches and motivators crossed-over from the sporting world. I think it is good that studies are cited to support the author’s assertions. It is a good read with a feeling of having learned a few things when all is done.

    Well researched and written into digestable, evidence-based insights on the essentials of coaching. I liked the way the author was able to reduce the wide-referencing research findings into essential insights, which makes for a quick grasping of the subject matter. I enjoyed the commentary on goal orientation and on being an inspiring leader. The sensicle explanation regarding the differences between coaching and mentoring was particularly interesting and resonated well. The author takes the reader through eight steps to achieving an organisational coaching culture that can be incorporated into any business model.

    As a business leader, I am always willing to learn more about coaching and training my team. I picked-up a copy of this book with the hopes of expanding my knowledge base, and becoming a better coach. I learned a lot from this book, and I like the author. It was good to pick-up some tips about employee motivation and establishing a corporate coaching culture.
