What is Coaching – Really – And Why is Everyone Talking About It? Part 1
Coaching is exploding. The International Coach Federation (ICF) reported in 2012 that the profession had grown nearly 60% from 2007 to 2012. As leadership coaching becomes more popular as an organizational development practice, it is beset with frequent misconceptions.
Management Concepts new whitepaper series What is Coaching – Really – And Why is Everyone Talking About It? addresses what coaching is, how it actually works, the results, and the value of coaching.
This series, written by Mark Leheney, clearly illustrates the coaching experience through examples and stories.
In Part I of the series, Leheney explains what leaders experience during each step of the coaching process and why it has such life-changing and positive results for the both the coached leaders and their colleagues. In Part 2 (available here), he addresses specific coaching practices.
