From HBR-January: "What Can Coaches do for You?"

Diane Coutu and Carol Kauffman’s article “What Can Coaches do for You?” discusses how leaders today are increasingly turning to executive coaches for several reasons: To develop high potentials or facilitate transition, to act as a sounding board, or to address derailing behaviors. The authors discuss the ingredients of a successful coaching relationship: client motivation, chemistry between coach and client, and a strong commitment form upper management to the process. The authors discuss these and other important issues when choosing a coach. Worth the read.

There’s a lot more in this January 2009 issue. I just wanted to whet your appetite. I’m recommending it to each of my clients ASAP.
