Leadership coaching has become a key to success for both individuals and organisations. Graham Leede monstrates here that he is a master of the field, packing his book with insights and practical ideas. No one has done a better job of integrating our understandings from psychology into the training of today's leaders. I enthusiastically recommend this book to managers, coaches, therapists and students!
David Gergen, Director, Center for Public Leadership, John F Kennedy School, Harvard University and Former Adviser to Four US Presidents'

A wise and thought provoking account of professional coaching. Graham Lee invites us to look more deeply at managerial motivations, and shows how coaching can guide the process of increasing self-awareness and creating lasting change.The model of authentic leadership is particularly useful; I could immediately recognise how colleagues fit within it, and so understand the psychological journey that coaching will need to entail.
Stuart Horwood Managing Director, BT Wholesale Markets

If you are going to readjust one book on coaching this year, this is the one.
David Megginson, Professor of HRD, Sheffield Hallam University and co-chair European Mentoring & Coaching Council.

How good is much of the coaching available to managers today?
Effective leadership coaching can massively improve a manager's performance ? but unfortunately good coaching is more than just passing on one's own business experience. Developing authentic leadership through coaching is about changing deeply personal,  often unconscious, elements of a manager's behaviour.

Leadership Coaching sets out a five-stage coaching model, and works through each of these stages in detail, highlighting the skills that coaches require and the issues they are likely to face. It also offers HR managers sponsoring coaching an understanding of the competencies necessary for effective coaching, and provides a standard procedure for buying in coaching services.
Lee triumphantly succeeds in combining practical business experience with an accessible presentation of the deeper psychological aspects of improving managerial performance and overcoming resistance to change.

Target Audience:

Ideal for management student and corporate leaders, trainers, professors.
