Coaching: Winning Strategies for Individuals and Teams
To be a successful coach requires specific skills, as well as an understanding of why and how it works. Dennis Kinlaw shows how coaching is a proven and powerful strategy for building winning performances by creating a culture where people who have clear objectives, are competent to do their jobs, have the confidence to perform difficult tasks, take ownership for their own performance and are committed to giving their best at all times. He highlights coaching as an essential leadership function, which can be performed by anyone in the organization who wants to develop others. His comprehensive guide looks at the variety of ways in which coaching is currently understood and applied; provides a Successful Coaching Model, to help you develop your coaching skills; identifies the generic skills that successful coaches use; shows how to apply these skills in working with both individuals and teams; and includes specific and real examples throughout, to illustrate all aspects covered.
