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.
