Today, at the beginning of the 2020’s, the need for effective leadership coaching is more urgent than ever. In response, this book offers a broad and multi-disciplinary overview of coaching in the twenty-first century, with contributions from 27 leading coaches and coach educators across North America, Europe and Asia. It is organized in 5 sections:
- Part I offers an overview of the “ancestors” of coaching, whose theories and practices have informed coaching from its beginnings
- Part II consists of five chapters including research, theories, and models that inform coaching with leaders and executives.
- Part III includes four chapters focused on a variety of theories, research, and techniques that enable transformational change with coaching clients.
- Part IV includes four chapters focused on coaching in an organizational or group context.
- Part V includes three chapters covering research and applied theory for educating and developing professional coaches.
The book is particularly valuable for:
- Practicing coaches, who will appreciate innovations in both coaching theory and practice of immediate relevance for their clients;
- Researchers, who will value new case studies using qualitative and quantitative methodologies in multiple coaching contexts;
- Coach educators, who will find fresh perspectives and new materials to include in their training programs; and
- Coaching students, who will gain a deeper appreciation of the theories underpinning evidence-based coaching.
