Book Description

The first comprehensive guide to using executive coaching in
organizations
• Based on the authors’ rigorous original research with dozens of leading companies
• Includes extensive case studies, examples of coaching tools, advice on measuring ROI, and much more
The field of executive coaching is growing at an astonishing rate. Corporations are increasingly turning to coaching as an intervention, as it offers leaders and managers both on-the-job learning and built-in follow-up. Human resource and leadership development practitioners must wade through a wilderness of conflicting information about when to use coaching, how to do it well, and how to evaluate the cost-effectiveness and success of any coaching intervention.
Executive Coaching for Results helps this critical leadership development technique come of age. This is not a how-to-coach book—there are already plenty of those—but rather a comprehensive guide on how to strategically use coaching to maximize development of talent and link the impact of coaching to bottom-line results. Underhill, McAnally, and Koriath draw on their rigorous original research with Fortune 1000 and Global 500 companies such as Dell, Sony, Johnson & Johnson, Disney, Unilever, Wal-Mart, and many others to cover topics like coaching as part of an overall leader­ship development strategy; typical activities and instruments used during coach­ing; costs of coaching; development of an internal coaching program; selection of the right coach for the job; the ROI of coaching; follow-up after coaching; and much more.
Offering practical learning, best practices, and illuminating case studies, this is the first definitive guide to the effective use of executive coaching in the corporate environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, this is The Difinitive Guide 15 Jan. 2009
Format:Hardcover
I am very happy to recommend this book both as a previous corporate client of leadership development and now as an executive coach and leadership developer. It provides a much needed overview of executive coaching as a leadership and organisational development tool for both clients and coaches. I am impressed with the research and examples - the practical tools and checklists are of special value. Personally I have picked out some `golden nuggets' to enhance my own practice and enrich the interactions I have with clients before, during and after coaching engagements. Chapters I especially like are on culture, the toolbox and measuring impact. In the current challenging business environment it reinforces why executive coaching is especially needed to support and develop leaders. Congratulations to Brian Underhill and his co-authors for writing such a comprehensive resource.

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical guide to executive coaching 19 May 2009
By Rolf Dobelli TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Professional sports teams feature the greatest athletes in the world - the fastest pitchers, the strongest hitters and the best ball handlers. Most of these individuals have been playing their sports since they were little kids, working hard to develop and refine their athletic skills over time. Yet, these superbly trained and exceptionally talented athletes depend on coaches to teach them to perform optimally. If sports superstars require coaches, don't corporate leaders need them also? Brian O. Underhill, Kimcee McAnally and John J. Koriath believe they do. In this book, these executive coaching experts thoroughly explain this leadership development methodology. They describe how your organization can create a solid executive coaching program to develop its leaders' expertise and professionalism. getAbstract suggests this comprehensive, detailed book to human resources and leadership development professionals, as well as to managers who want to enhance their up-and-coming executives' leadership capacities.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Standard Text for Executive Coaching 9 April 2008
By E. Britton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Executive Coaching for Results: The Definitive Guide to Developing Organizational Leaders

This book must already be considered a foundation text for executive coaching's role and practice. The field is defined and framed in the context of the business world and related professional services. Despite its scholarly underpinnings, the book is eminently accessible to any reader and provides immediately useful and practical guidance to the coach, coachee, coaching organization and client company.

The roles of corporate culture, leadership support for coaching, and the more traditional human resource functions in the coaching initiative are explored. `How to' sections on organizing, managing, conducting and evaluating coaching projects provide state-of-the-art standards of practice. The book looks at strategies to develop the coaching profession and ends with a futuristic look at what may lie ahead for the profession.

Every serious practitioner will make a thorough study of this publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Resource for Organizations and Executive Coaches 1 Jan. 2008
By Mary Jo Asmus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
As a consultant and executive coach who designs and delivers strategic coaching programs to organizations, I am pleased to recommend this book to anyone involved or responsible for the design and delivery of coaching programs. Well thought out and organized, with research and data to back up the conclusions (when possible and appropriate). Best practices are described when research is not available.

The Executive Coaching industry is changing rapidly. It is important that we have standardized practices and high quality design in coaching engagements. This book is an excellent resource that takes a snapshot in time of the state of the art (and science) of Executive Coaching to assist coaches and the organizations they work in to maximize the value they deliver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive handbook 24 Mar. 2008
By JS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
As an executive coach and leadership trainer, I see the need for coaching more and more
as a way of attracting, developing and retaining leaders in a very competitive
environment.

This book ably helps remove a lot of the hype and myths around this growing but
fragmented field and it provides a very practical road-map for how to implement a
successful coaching program.

I would have liked to have seen more on the global aspect of coaching but
perhaps that could be the topic of the authors' next book! :)
