Coaching the Coach:
Skill-Building Tools Help Transform Top Leaders
Newly released The Art of Executive Coaching, by Dr. Nadine Greiner, reveals key insights to leadership transformation
(Alexandria, VA) October 9, 2018 – Today, leading businesses rely on the many benefits of executive coaching to enhance leadership performance and development. A recent study found that executive coaching resulted in as much as a 39 percent improvement in customer service ratings. However, despite extensive training, many coaches struggle to deliver the results needed.
In the newly released book The Art of Executive Coaching, Dr. Nadine Greiner takes the reader behind the scenes with nine stories of executive coach Alice Well and her clients. Dr. Greiner reveals numerous insights, tips, and tricks to unlocking performance based on her 30 years of consulting success. The story-based format demonstrates how executive coaches must adapt their approach to meet the unique needs, traits, and habits of each leader. Read a sample chapter here.
"You will find yourself changed by reading this book,” writes Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger. Alan Weiss, Ph.D., author of Million Dollar Consulting, says, “With all my experience, I learned by reading this book. That’s because I know I need a great coach, too. With The Art of Executive Coaching, you now have one as well."
A study published in the Manchester Review that primarily investigated executives from Fortune 1000 companies reported that executive coaching leads to improved customer service (39 percent frequency), cost reduction (23 percent), and increased bottom-line profitability (22 percent). However, most executive coaches fail because their practices do not get off the ground. Dr. Greiner’s book clarifies what’s needed to be an effective executive coach.
