Coaching for Leadership Development

The best leaders have been coaching and being coached for years. But, in the modern business world, we have systems, processes, and frameworks to help us. At its best, coaching is a conversation that helps one person figure out what they need to do to get the results they want.

Definitions of Coaching

‘a process that enables learning and development to occur and thus performance to improve. To be successful a Coach requires a knowledge and understanding of process as well as the variety of styles, skills and techniques that are appropriate to the context in which the coaching takes place.’
Eric Parsloe, in ‘The Manager as Coach and Mentor’ https://geni.us/uNRb5H

‘unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.’
John Whitmore, in ‘Coaching for Performance’ https://geni.us/xRKR4g

How to Coach

Either (or both):
1. Find an opportunity to offer coaching to someone who needs to develop skills, resolve problems, or grow their career. Start simple, and build your coaching skills. Commit to at least four 1-hour sessions (6 MC CPD Points)
2. Find yourself a coach. Look for someone who has experience and skills to help you develop in any aspect of your career. Ask them courteously to share coach you – and be prepared to buy them coffees. If the relationship works, aim for at least four 1-hour sessions (6 MC CPD Points)

‘Coaching for Performance’ is the best book on performance coaching in the workplace: https://geni.us/xRKR4g

There are a vast number of Leadership books – perhaps more than on any other management-related topic. And there is also a huge range represented in different lists of the best. This no-doubt reflects the different contexts for leadership.

So, any recommended reading list of leadership books must be particularly subjective. I have chosen those that made me think, and which are of particular value to managerial leaders: not sportspeople, military leaders, or CEOs. In no particular order:

📖 Leaders Eat Last
📖 Start with Why
📖 Humble Leadership
📖 The Leadership Challenge
📖 The New Leaders
📖 Why should Anyone be Led by You
📖 The Habit of Excellence
