Executive coaching is one of the most expensive investments organizations make in leadership development. Yet, conducting executive coaching engagements as individual, disconnected assignments with nothing to guarantee alignment, continuity, and cultural consistency would be an expensive mistake at best.
In this book on Enterprise-wide Coaching, Dr. John Hoover skillfully uses his decades of experience in consulting organizations and coaching individuals to suggest how coaching leaders should be aligned with organizational goals and keep the voice and interests of the organization alive while they engage in executive coaching.
The Ten Commandments elucidated in this book will help managers of coaching functions in organizations and the coaches they hire to design and structure organizational coaching engagements through an organization development lens. This will ensure that the coaches paid for by an organization for the purpose of developing, correcting, or enhancing management or leadership skills and behaviors in individuals and groups will work in tandem with the organization’s talent, leadership, and global business strategy, thereby producing maximum return on the coaching investment.
