The aim of this book is primarily to enable those wanting to invest in coaching to be able to do so in the most effective way whether they are doing this as an organisation or as an individual. It illustrates the impact coaching can have and identifies changes in leadership and management demands and expectations. We consider what a coachee gets out of coaching, different formats for coaching and its potential value at Board level, including for the Chief Executive Officer, and for other individuals or groups such as new recruits or those who have just been promoted. We look at the difference between coaching and mentoring and the potential benefits that both can have, especially in combination. We look at how coaching programmes can be introduced effectively and how a leader might introduce coaching in their organisation. We address the international dimension with many organisations looking to ensure that leadership is based on similar values throughout its global reach. This book is unashamedly about business coaching. Quality coaching engagement will impact into an individual's wider life priorities and use of time and energy. But the effective delivery of business priorities has to be at the basis of introducing business coaching.

From the Back Cover:

The use of coaching in business is a hot topic. How do you and your organisation make the best use of it and ensure it delivers practical results?

Coaching is about individuals growing their strengths and tackling demanding challenges successfully. Written for business leaders and HR professionals, Business Coaching: Achieving Practical Results through Effective Engagement gives you the essentials of business coaching and tells you how you can apply that knowledge back to you and your organisation. Every Leader who is considering using coaching as a business development tool will find this book a valuable guide.

Coaching is not a soft option. It should be both challenging and stretching. The long term result will be a clear sense of purpose, clarity of aspiration and a set of pragmatic and focused next steps. The effective delivery of business priorities lies at the heart of all great coaching which results from effective engagement between the coach, the individual client and the sponsor.

Business Coaching: Achieving Practical Results through Effective Engagement will enable you to invest in coaching in the most effective way. If coaching is already part of your business approach, this book will help you use it better. If coaching is new to you, use this book as your guide to determine how coaching can help deliver the outcomes you seek.

About the Author:

Peter Shaw has worked in five Government Departments covering Education, Treasury, Employment, Transport and the Environment and held three Director General posts within Government. He is often working at the interface of the public and private sectors and assisting Chief Executives and Board members in taking on new roles and in major organisational change.

Robin Linnecar has a wealth of experience from the private sector having worked in Arthur Andersen, Shell International, Deloitte, Haskins and Sells, Coopers and Lybrand and KPMG. Wide exposure to and understanding of business organisations, combined with over fifteen years of coaching experience, means that Robin brings a wealth of questions in exploring perspectives and options with his clients.
Both authors continue to have non-executive and part-time roles in addition to their coaching work. Peter and Robin are partners with Praesta Partners, one of the global leaders in executive coaching, and the leading coaching organisation within the UK. Over 6000 leaders in some of the greatest organisations in the world, including Microsoft and Shell, have chosen to work with Praesta to help them raise their game in coaching.
