Coaching in the Big Leagues
Lyne, Noreen
Community College Journal, v73 n5 p36-38 Apr-May 2003
More than ever there are both leadership shortages and the temptation to cut training budgets. Senior administrators and faculty are retiring at an alarming rate, and the trend is expected to continue. For a decade, prominent business journals have focused on a crisis of leadership in the corporate sector. This article describes executive coaching, an emerging approach to leadership that is being widely adopted. This new tool enables organizations to enhance and expand their talent base and attain higher productivity. Confronting a shrinking talent pool, many organizations have incorporated executive coaching into their human resource development plans. The author considers whether coaching may be an appropriate tool for community colleges dealing with similar leadership crises.
