Despite coaching being used with leaders in business for many years, I am often asked "what is coaching?" and "what benefits are there from being coached?"
So, last year I sought a perspective from other coaches by asking fellow professionals around the world to complete the sentence "As a coach, you know when coaching works when..."
The response was overwhelming and I put a selection of them into an illustrated eBook called Coaching Works, available as a FREE download (click here).
It is meant to be a collection for coaches and potential coachees alike, with the hope that it inspires people to take the first step and find out for themselves.
As I read it again at the weekend for the first time in a while, I wondered if the same collection of comments could be applied to leadership? Try replacing the original sentence with "As a leader, you know when your leadership is working when..." and let me know if you think the same.
