About the book

Organizations are increasingly complex, requiring flexibility to implement significant, rapid change that goes beyond the ability of an individual leader or CEO. A high-performing and cohesive leadership team is critical for success. Leadership Team Coaching in Practice presents enlightening case studies on how leadership team coaching techniques have been applied internationally across a variety of team types and industries, including professional services, pharmaceuticals, airlines, healthcare and finance. With expert contributions from chief executives, team coaches, team leaders and consultants, this practical guide illustrates best practice tailored to the needs of each organization.

This fully updated 2nd edition of Leadership Team Coaching in Practice includes new case studies and addresses hot topics in systemic leadership coaching theory. Answering questions such as how do you get the most from working across multiple teams? how should inter-team coaching be approached? and how do you coach millennials and tech start-ups?, it helps foster collective transformational leadership, whatever the business sector and type of team. Ideal for executive coaches, organizational development consultants (OD), HR leaders and aspiring managers, it shows how to develop leadership teams that can implement strategic change effectively and sustain competitive advantage.
