N.R.Jothi Narayanan, HSE consultant (chemical/ Gas ★★★★★

No one is a bad listener. But in the process of urgency in mind & action, people are losing concentration and failing to listen effectively. This is a must read book for every mentor who is functioning as Executive coach. From my 35 years of industrial experience in India, Europe & the Middle East in chemical/oil & gas, I agree with the contents based on the field experience of the author.


Executive Coaching is a burgeoning profession that has grown largely unregulated throughout the last five decades. As such, the lines between the serious and improvised professionals as well as the borders between well-supported methods and improvised approaches of undocumented effectiveness are quite blurry. Navigating the complexity of offers and approaches can be a lengthy exercise.

This book attempts to provide an objective and simplified summary of the most updated facts and elements from well documented studies and literature, complemented by practical examples; as such it can serve as both an introductory and a quick reference guide on Executive Coaching for:

  • life coaches who wish to learn executive coaching tools and skills in order to offer their services to businesses;
  • executive coaches who wish to continue to invest in their development and complement their knowledge with additional perspectives;
  • business leaders and HR professionals who wish to learn and use executive coaching tools and skills in their daily working relationships;
  • business professionals who, intending to use external Executive Coaching services and finding the offer confusing, wish to identify clear criteria and selection guidelines to complement and support their evaluation and choice;
  • designers of behavioral training and leadership courses who want to incorporate coaching qualities in their programs.

About the Author

Laura Lozza gained a Master of Science in Industrial Chemistry at the Genova University (Italy) and then immediately joined Procter & Gamble as Technical Brand Manager; she then continued in P&G throughout a successful international career; she lived in the USA, in Germany and Belgium and gradually moved to more global and strategic positions that exposed her to a vast range of Asian, American and European cultures. When their two children reached school age, together with her Norwegian husband she decided to move the family to Norway and joined Norsk Hydro where she continued her international career in roles that included Business Development, Marketing and General Management. She had a further expatriate assignment in France and held significant P&L responsibilities in Africa.

Constantly eager to learn, develop and grow, Laura became very quickly fascinated by leadership studies from the early days in P&G, a passion that she continued to cultivate through extensive executive education (from IMD to Ashridge) and which culminated in Coaching studies and more recently in Applied Neuroscience studies, which were both instrumental to her decision, in 2010, to leave her corporate career and become fully engaged in coaching and leadership training. She founded Grooa, a partnership of international business consultants and coaches operating in Europe and has since successfully coached and trained in coaching skills hundreds of executives.

A member of ICF, she coaches in four languages (English, Italian, French and Norwegian) and she divides her time between the city life of Oslo (Norway) where Grooa is headquarted and the country life of Gemert (Netherlands), where her third husband has his origins.
