What are the critical success factors in effective executive coaching? What are the key competencies of a psychologically-informed coach? What are the similarities and differences between coaching and therapy? This book provides business coaches and management consultants with the framework for a psychological approach to executive coaching. It shows how performance-related issues in the workplace often have a psychological dimension to them and provides the reader with an understanding of how to work in more depth to help people resolve their issues and unlock their potential. It analyzes what constitutes effective coaching, stressing the importance of sound coaching principles, good coaching process, the desirable competencies of the coach, the importance of the coaching relationship and the issue of ‘coachability’. It also examines the impact of a stronger psychological approach to coaching, exploring the key psychological competencies required, how to develop them, and the training and supervision issues implicit in this approach. A recurrent theme is the personal development of the coach throughout the coaching process and Peter Bluckert highlights the contribution that the Gestalt perspective offers the coach, through the use of self as instrument of change. Anecdotes, stories and case samples are used throughout the book to illustrate situations so that the reader builds a picture of what psychologically-informed coaching looks like and how to practice ethically, responsibly and competently. Psychological Dimensions to Executive Coachingprovides business and executive coaches, management consultants, human resource specialists, corporate executives/senior managers, health/social workers, occupational psychologists, teachers, psychotherapists and counsellors with the essential information they need to be successful coaches and empower their clients.

Effective leadership coaching can drastically improve performance. However, good coaching is more than just passing on your own business experience. Developing authentic leadership through coaching is about changing deeply personal, often unconscious, elements of a manager's behaviour. In Leadership Coaching, Graham Lee explains to coaches how to be more sophisticated in their understanding of psychology and how to develop the skills needed to work on both the psychological and the practical elements of improving managerial performance. Leadership Coaching sets out a five-stage coaching model, and works through each of these stages in detail, highlighting the skills that coaches require and the issues they are likely to face. It also offers HR managers sponsoring coaching an understanding of the competencies necessary for effective coaching and provides a standard procedure for buying in coaching services. Supported by a wide range of case studies throughout the book, this is valuable reading for both in-house and external coaches looking to effectively develop leaders and managers in organizations.

In this book, some of the world's leading scholars come together to describe their thinking and research on the topic of the psychology of leadership. Most of the chapters were originally presented as papers at a research conference held in 2001 at the Kellogg School of Management of Northwestern University. The contributions span traditional social psychological areas, as well as organizational theory; examining leadership as a psychological process and as afforded by organizational constraints and opportunities. The editors' goal was not to focus the chapters on a single approach to the study and conceptualization of leadership but rather to display the diversity of issues that surround the topic. Leadership scholars have identified a host of approaches to the study of leadership. What are the personal characteristics of leaders? What is the nature of the relation between leaders and followers? Why do we perceive some people to be better leaders than others? What are the circumstances that evoke leadership qualities in people? Can leadership be taught? And so on. The contributions to this book examine these important questions and fall into three categories: conceptions of leadership, factors that influence the effectiveness of leadership, and the consequences and effects of leadership on the leader. All in all, the chapters of this volume display part of a broad spectrum of novel and important approaches to the study of the psychology of leadership. We hope that they are equally useful to those who are or would be leaders and to those who study the topic. As recent events have served to remind us, it is too important a topic to be ignored by psychologists.

According to a recent study, there is a 40% failure rate among executives in the U.S. today. To combat the difficulties inherent in assuming high-level corporate roles companies are using new tools to help executives achieve maximum effectiveness, including the hiring of an executive coach. This unique book, written by a trained psychologist and executive coach with decades of experience as a business executive, offers a step-by-step guide to the practice of executive coaching. Using actual case studies, the author builds a multidimensional approach to coaching; clients are encouraged to look at multiple forces in their lives, including the Individual and the Organization, Unconscious Forces, Multi-Level Forces, and their Use of Self. Examining each force then guides the executive coach in joint goal setting, commitment to a coaching contract, meeting objectives, evaluating outcomes, and concluding the coaching process. Written specifically for graduate students--of applied psychology and related disciplines--who wish to practice executive coaching, this text will enlighten anyone in business who would like to use executive coaching to improve his or her organization.

Manfred Kets de Vries, Professor of Leadership Development, INSEAD: “The author takes us on an exciting journey to explain what coaching is all about, providing us with a roadmap that is second to none. Anyone interested in better understanding what coaching is all about, would do well to have a serious look at this book.” David Megginson, Professor of Human Resources Development, Sheffield Hallam University: “From a vivid personal story just before the first chapter to the fascinating mass of data in the appendices, this book is a captivating read about the concrete particulars of coaching and the theoretical perspectives we can use to make sense of them. Erik de Haan makes a case for relational coaching and prescribes clearly what his research and the tradition within which it is embedded can tell practitioners in the field.” Bruce E. Wampold, Professor of Counseling Psychology, University of Wisconsin: “I am thrilled that there is a coaching book that emphasizes the coachee and the relationship. In Relational Coaching, Erik de Haan places the emerging profession on a strong foundation that emphasizes the interpersonal aspects of the endeavour.” Relational Coaching is a radically different way of looking at coaching that puts the relationship, from the perspective of the coachee, at the centre. Exploring both age-old tradition and reliable studies in recent decades, Relational Coaching gives the modern executive coach ten commandments to help improve his or her practice. The book demonstrates how each of these commandments is underpinned by sound quantitative research. The book begins by giving a complete overview of the profession and the latest developments in coaching. The second part of the book presents new quantitative and qualitative research into effects and experiences of coaching. Part three contains an introduction to the activities that make a good coach and the mechanisms used to verify coaches’ understanding of their profession. Other topics covered include training, accreditation, supervision and recommended literature.

Gender diversity and cross-cultural, cross-generational working in organisations has led to new challenges for leadership, which many companies are solving through executive coaching. This unique leadership coaching book is written by practitioners for practitioners and managers wanting to get the best from individuals in leadership roles. It brings together the authors' experience as psychologists, neuroscientists and senior level executive coaches to analyse the neuroscience behind behavioural change. The authors present the latest views on leadership, executive coaching and an introduction to the basic concepts of how the brain works to enable managers and coaches to work more confidently, and with greater focus. A series of coaching case histories are accompanied by neuroscience commentaries that offer full explanations of how to select a coaching intervention that will engage different parts of the brain. The cases are categorised by the technique used and the area of the brain the tool accesses, making it easier to understand what type of coaching tool would be useful for a specific situation, and also what type of technique might be used to engage a different part of the brain if the first approach is ineffective.

Dieses Buch befasst sich mit dem Geschäftsmodell- und Innovationswettbewerb im digitalen Wettbewerb. Der zukünftige wirtschaftliche Erfolg wird von der Fähigkeit zu Geschäftsmodellinnovationen und multidimensionalen Innovationen (z.B. Lean Startup) sowie dem Aufbau einer Business Innovation Factory abhängen. Im digitalen Hyperwettbewerb wird dieser neue Wettbewerb um Chancenanteile immer wichtiger. Ein Unternehmen, welches im Chancenanteilswettbewerb versagt, wird aber auch im klassischen Marktanteilswettbewerb nicht erfolgreich sein. Der zukünftige Erfolg im digitalen Wettbewerb erfordert eine grundlegende Veränderung der Perspektive des Top-Managements: vom operativen Geschäftsmodell zum Business Model Prototype, von eindimensionalen Innovationen (Produkt-, Prozess- und operative Geschäftsmodellinnovationen) zu multidimensionalen Innovationen (strategische und integrierte Geschäftsmodellinnovationen). Gleichzeitig muss der bekannte strategische Managementprozess mit einem neuen strategischen Business Innovation Managementprozess verbunden werden.

Gute Chefs essen zuletzt

Warum manche Teams funktionieren – und andere nicht

Ohne ein gutes, verlässliches Team könnten viele Führungskräfte ihre Ziele niemals erreichen. Doch leider werden viele Teams von internen Machtkämpfen, Streitigkeiten und den daraus resultierenden Misserfolgen ausgebremst – und die Führungskräfte schaffen es dann oft auch mit Leistungsanreizen oder Belohnungen nicht, ein Team wieder in die Spur zu bekommen. Doch warum sind hier manche Vorgesetzte oft erstaunlich hilflos? Die Antwort wurde Simon Sinek während einer Unterhaltung mit einem General des Marine Corps offensichtlich. Dieser erläuterte die Tradition: "Offiziere essen immer zuletzt." Was in der Kantine noch symbolisch gemeint ist, wird auf dem Schlachtfeld todernst: Gute Anführer opfern ihren eigenen Komfort, sogar ihr eigenes Leben, zum Wohl derer, die ihnen unterstehen. Sinek überträgt diese Tradition auf Unternehmen, wo sie bedeutet, dass die Führungskraft einen sogenannten Safety Circle, einen Sicherheitskreis, bilden muss, der das Team vor Schwierigkeiten von außen schützt. Nur so bildet sich im Unternehmen eine vertrauensvolle Atmosphäre. Der Sicherheitskreis führt zu stabilen, anpassungsfähigen und selbstbewussten Teams, in denen sich jeder zugehörig fühlt und in denen alle Energie darauf verwendet wird, die gemeinsamen Ziele zu erreichen. Chefs, die bereit sind, als letzte zu essen, werden mit zutiefst loyalen Kollegen belohnt und schaffen so konfliktfreie, motivierte und erfolgreich Teams.

Embrace the Power of Executive Coaching With businesses becoming more complex, they tend to lean on their high performers to keep the company first class, fend off competitors, innovate, or pivot to new, unexplored markets. But who do these executives and leaders turn to when they need to refine their own skills? Executive coaches. In The Art of Executive Coaching, Dr. Nadine Greiner lets you in on the secrets, tips, and tricks to unlocking the better performance leaders need to thrive. Follow along as she tells nine stories of an executive coach, Alice Well, and her clients. With Alice’s help, these individuals learn to adapt their personal leadership styles, illuminate their blind spots, and adopt new ways of relating and managing to benefit their teams and organizations. But it’s not all smooth sailing—this coach shares the bumps along the way, too. With this book, aspiring executive coaches will understand why coaching works so well—why certain techniques enable leaders to achieve dramatic results in a relatively short time. And yet, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to executive coaching. No step-by-step procedure that will work, without fail, for each new client. Intuitively, that makes sense. As these stories show, you must adapt your approach to meet the unique needs, traits, and habits of each leader. That’s part of what makes the business of executive coaching thrilling—but also increasingly in demand. No executive is perfect; there’s always room for improvement—improvement that can have impressive effects on the business, its employees, and its customers. The skilled executive coach helps make this possible.
