If you ever considered hiring an executive coach, but wondered what to expect from the experience, wonder no more. Author Susan Battley has written a tightly focused book that will answer all your questions about this helpful executive perk. Her advice will enable you to determine whether you would benefit from coaching, how it might help you improve, what coaches do, how to select one and how much they charge. Battley writes clearly and provides useful examples from her own experience. However, the book would have gotten off to a faster start if she had begun by discussing what coaches do, rather than offering an overly detailed discussion of how to determine whether you can use coaching. getAbstract recommends this book to executives who want to learn how to take advantage of professional advice to develop their leadership capabilities quickly.
In this summary, you will learn
- What executive coaching is;
- How to use the five-step coaching model; and
- How to determine if you are a good candidate for executive coaching.
