From the Back Cover
This book will change the way you think.
In this whacky world the best jobs go to the worst people. Careers fizzle out at the drop of a hat. To protect next year's budget you've got to waste whatever's left of this year's money. Matrix victims quietly go missing. Companies merge and frequently go bust. And everything's tightly controlled by a secret underworld Finance mafia.
Does this sound familiar? You've entered the rough and tumble realm of corporate business where crazy things happen and it's tough to survive. Welcome to the counter-intuitive playground of organizational life.
Come along for a white-knuckle ride through our organizational theme park. Your companion guide is the streetwise Dr. Fink-- the world's expert on organizations. Allow this amiable practitioner to share with you the wisdom through which he consistently achieves corporate, client, and personal success as he demonstrates his magical methods for averting calamity before your very eyes.
Assisted by a cast of flamboyant characters--including Matilda the well-meaning but meticulously incompetent coach, Fat Sid in finance, Adrian his top enforcer, and Mort the undertaker who runs operations into the ground--join Dr. Fink on an illuminating journey down dark corporate alleyways to get the full low-down on what's really going on.
And if after the trip you should ever suspect an impending disaster surfacing in your organizational life--all you have to do is ask yourself one simple question: What should I ask Dr. Fink?
"An extraordinary work that will stand the test of time." --Marshall Goldsmith

The Coaching for Leadership Case Syudy Workbook is a companion publication for the third edition of 'Coaching for Leadership'.Coaching for Leadership: Writings on Leadership from the World's Greatest Coaches (J-B US non-Franchise Leadership)
As a systemic strategist, imbued with delightful wit and common sense, Dr. Fink has us laughing out loud as we see the non-sensical decisions that are sometimes made in organisations, then cringing with embarrassment as we recognise how close we came ourselves to making similar decisions.
Taking the approach of a Casebook, with case notes about key characters, the situations they are in, and the decisions that need to be made, Dr. Fink makes us think, helps us laugh, and above all, teaches us about the wider array of situational factors to which we must attend for our decision making to be effective.
If you want to avoid the bear-traps of bad organisational decision making, learn how to develop the situational intelligence that you need to succeed, and have a good laugh as you learn along the way, then the Coaching for Leadership Case Study Workbook, incorporating Dr. Fink's Leadership Casebook, will give you precisely what you need.
The humorous case studies of Dr Fink provide the perfect foil to explore the inner workings of organisations and the principal actors that make things tick. Each self contained story provide opportunity for personal reflection and has helped me analyse practical situations.
I would highly recommend this book whether for personal study or as a catalyst material for workshops.
Great examples of situations that I have found or am finding myself in with professional and business smart solutions.
