The book deals with how coaching interventions can drive a journey of transformational change at individual, team and organisational levels. The group coaching methodology, as used by the INSEAD Global Leadership Centre (IGLC) and adopted by the Center for Leadership Development Research at ESMT, is the basis for developing the theoretical assumptions of the chapters. Through sharing the research methodologies, and describing intervention and change techniques used in leadership development and education of executive coaches, the book sheds light on how the “magic” of coaching works, what coaches actually do, and how their clients respond.
This book is a joint project between IGLC, INSEAD and the Center for Leadership Development Research (CLDR) at the European School of Technology and Management (ESMT), Berlin.
