Coaching in Organizations

with Linda J. Miller

Learn the secret to success in your business coaching program.

Coaching in organizations has grown substantially over the past ten years, with businesses spending millions of dollars on coaching programs in the United States alone. Without a universal understanding of what coaching is, however, executive coaches and consultants may become frustrated with what appears to be little or no tangible results from their corporation’s investment.

How can your company experience an “observable” return on investment through its coaching program? From The Ken Blanchard Companies, a leading global corporate training firm, comes a powerful guide designed to help executive coaches and managers implement programs that work for their organizations.

With Coaching in Organizations, your business can:

  • Learn how to establish a top-quality “coaching climate.”
  • Support learning, achieve strategic objectives, and build up leadership development.
  • Look at internal and external coaching and the roles and competencies of each.
  • Put the right elements to work to get the most from your coaching program.
  • Develop a coaching program that creates sustainability and ensures a real return on your organization’s invested training dollars.

Written by two master certified business coaches and leaders in the business coaching field, Coaching in Organizations equips human resource and organizational development professionals, as well as beginning to expert coaches, with the tools and methodologies they need to help clients become more effective leaders within their organizations.

Leverage Your Best, Ditch the Rest

With Scott Blanchard

The authors, founders of coaching.com, have created a plan that incorporates the strategies used by coaches when assisting their clients.

Blanchard (son of renowned business consultant, Ken Blanchard) and Homan start by raising three key questions: How do you see yourself? How do others see you? How do you want to be seen?

People must be able to answer these points to improve their daily work routines as well as to be happier in general. The authors walk readers through a series of exercises that offer a perspective on their office situation and in what specific areas they need guidance. In some cases, by learning how others see them, readers may be able to make easy “fixes” to a troubling professional problem, but others may find they need to change their careers.

The authors clearly explain the steps readers need to take to make these changes. For example, readers are encouraged to understand their personal and professional needs, by identifying them, setting goals and looking toward friends or family who can help. Then they’re asked to consider a specific incident that was unsettling and ask themselves what needs were not being met, what they might have done differently and whom they might have spoken to for advice at the time.

This is an upbeat book, filled with practical advice, real life examples and numerous exercises. It is almost as good as having one-on-one sessions with an executive coach. (Publishers Weekly)
