Marshall Goldsmith - one of the top executive coaches in the world has edited and contributed to this heavy weight theory and practice on coaching. It's success relys on it's host of world class contributors. It's a must buy if you are a practitioner in the field of leadership development , OD or leadership coaching. It's backed up by research , processes and tools. Such heavy weights as Edgar Schien , of MIT and John Alexander of Centre for Creative Leadership make great contributions , but take some time over Marshall's simple but impactful writing style. The essay 'Coaching for Behavioural change' he writes 'As leaders we preach teamwork , but we often excuse our selves from it's practice' Fundamentally he focusses on the no 1. motivation rule of coaching - do you want to change ? As he quotes later ' executive coaching is simple , but not easy ' A bit like this book!
