This book provides an in-depth look at the coaching process, considering the diversity of both individual and organizational learning through the lens of psychodynamic mindfulness. Author Manfred Kets de Vries advises on how the best leadership coaches help their executive clients create the tipping points that lead to significant personal and professional change and explains the innovative tools he has devised to support this intervention technique. Including case examples and questionnaires that facilitate a deep understanding of the psychodynamics of personal and organisational change, this book will help coaches and executives transform attitudes, beliefs, and behaviours.
