The high rate of corporate change and the expectation of short-term performance put those who lead organisations under considerable pressure to produce results. But producing sustained results cannot be achieved by simply driving the bottom line. It requires that those who work for a company at any level be focused and motivated, and this necessitates leadership of a high order. Professional coaching can help the individual at the top develop this skill.This book describes the current state of evolution of external coaching; it assesses the future demand for coaching as a consultancy service to senior executives and discusses the ways in which that demand may be met. Finally, it offers a model of top executive professional coaching against which buyers may benchmark the services offered to them.
