Coaching and Organizational Culture presents a model showing how coaching can be used more holistically to support an organization's larger goals for change. The model advances coaching as a strategy - a combination of skills and practices that can be used to change the way organizations are designed and how business gets done. In this book, coaching is viewed as an ongoing, collaborative process, answering the need for a coaching approach that is integrated with broader leadership development processes and linked with business objectives and outcomes. Based on a solid theoretical foundation, as well as years of professional experience, this book: * Combines key elements of systems theory, complexity theory, organizational development and adult development theories in an innovative, unified framework * Integrates person-centered and organization-centered approaches to coaching to maximize the benefits of both approaches to change * Includes a number of case studies to illustrate the concepts in action and their connection to tangible results for organizations * Features innovative assessment methods to help organizations develop and leverage coaching capabilities to support change and strategic initiatives With the increased number of coaching programs and initiatives, this book is sure to be a valuable resource for students and executive coaches alike.
