From the Author

We believe passionately that coaching can have a dramatic
effect on organisational success and individual performance. We are
advocates of business coaching because we have seen its powerful effect in
organisations of many different shapes and sizes. Whether the organisation
is a global conglomerate, a company operating in one country, a government
department, a regional office, a charitable organisation or a university,
purposeful coaching of executives directed at specific challenges can be
equally valuable.

We do not regard coaching as a soft option. It is not cosy chats with no
purpose. Coaching is about focused conversations in which the individual
feels both strongly supported and effectively challenged and stretched. The
client will both be exhausted and invigorated by the process. The long term
result will be a strong sense of purpose, a clarity about aspirations and a
set of pragmatic and focused next steps. Its impact on an organisation will
be leaders making better decisions with the organisation's performance
improving as a consequence.

At the heart of coaching that works is effective engagement. This
engagement has many strands. The starting point is the engagement between
the coach and the client, enabling the client to engage effectively with
business needs, themselves, their family and community responsibilities and
their own futures. Engagement that is effective covers business,
intellectual, emotional and transformational dimensions. The quality of
engagement between coach and client feeds directly into the effective
engagement of the client in delivering business needs.

Coaching is the fulfilment of a lifetime of busy jobs for us both. Robin
has a wealth of experience from the private sector having worked in Arthur
Andersen and as a partner in PWC and KPMG. Peter worked in five Government
Departments covering Education, Treasury, Employment, Transport and the
Environment and held three Director General posts within Government. Both
of us continue to have Non-Executive and part time Executive roles in
addition to our coaching work.

We coach because we love the work. We get a buzz about helping
organisations work more effectively. There is such a joy in seeing
individuals have the courage of their convictions stretched by the coaching
and thereby become able to tackle difficult issues more effectively.

We see ourselves as enablers. We believe that you will find the book both
an inspiration and a quarry of suggestions. If coaching is already part of
your armoury the book can help you use it better. If coaching is new to
you, try it but in a way that fits your needs and has a sharp focus on
delivering the outcomes that are important to you.

Peter Shaw and Robin Linnecar
