Today's coaches are challenged with the recurring task of weaving threads from several disciplines into a tapestry that is fit for purpose in helping their clients learn and succeed. In this sense, the coach has to become a discriminating eclectic, developing a keen sense of judgment to select which threads are best woven into the fabric and those that it would be better to simply throw away. Coaching for Leadership is intended to be a cherished companion in that learning journey presented by the world's greatest coaches, including: Marshall Goldsmith, Paul Hersey, Beverly Kay, Daivd Ulrich and many more. About the Author Laurence S. Lyons, Ph.D., specializes in global change initiatives and director coaching in large organizations. A former technical director at Digital, Lyons brings over 20 years hands-on industrial and commercial experience to his coaching practice. He is the author of this book's companion edition, The Coaching for Leadership Case Study Workbook, which features Dr. Fink's Leadership Casebook and includes A Guide to Organizational Life which presents a new management paradigm that is applicable to the 21st Century. Marshall Goldsmith,Ph.D., is one of a select few executive advisors who have been asked to work with over 120 major CEOs and their management teams. A million-selling author, his books include the New York Times bestsellers, MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There, a Wall Street Journal #1 business book and Harold Longman Award winner for Business Book of the Year.
