How to Use the CD-ROM.
“Rich in content, this book provides the definitive road map for improving personal coaching skills and encouraging the growth and development of others. A must-read for managers who want to get the best from their people.”--Cynthia Hartley, senior vice president, human resources, Sonoco Products Company
“This book is a must for all senior managers because it focuses on developing the capability they will most need to build a strong company: i.e. how to stimulate and facilitate the growth of their key people and lead their personnel through the constant change processes businesses now go through. What makes it truly innovative is that it takes coaching skills out of the domain of professional coaches and makes it accessible for line management. The book is accessible because it is written in a very pragmatic style that explains how managers can facilitate a process of learning among their staff through self discovery. It explains how to put ideas into action, reflect upon them, evaluate them and subsequently develop new plans that build on what is learned. This is why the ideas and concepts that are propagated in this book are a core part of the leadership trainings for the partners of BCG to enhance the development of their key leadership competences and skills.”--Mirko Nikolic, senior vice president, Europe, Boston Consulting Group
