Opening the Door to Coaching Conversations
Cheliotes, Linda Gross; Reilly, Marceta Fleming
A leader doesn't have to solve every problem personally to be effective. In fact, helping others learn to resolve issues and implement their own solutions is the key to sustainable leadership and an empowered staff. This companion and follow-up book to "Coaching Conversations" brings the coaching style of leadership to life with stories from the experienced coaches on the Results Coaching team. Featuring examples of real people facing real problems who use coaching skills with great success, each chapter deals with a challenging leadership area and includes space for personal reflection, questions, and next steps. Topics include: (1) Core values; (2) Building trust and community; (3) High expectations; (4) School turnaround; (5) Garnering genuine buy-in; (6) Difficult conversations; (7) Accountability; and (8) Balancing personal and professional commitments. As you focus on developing those around you, you earn the trust and loyalty of your team.
