The Extraordinary Coach
IN THIS SUMMARY
The majority of today’s leaders believe that they are providing a sufficient amount of coaching to their employees, but studies show that the “coachees” disagree. In The Extraordinary Coach, John H. Zenger and Kathleen Stinnett demonstrate how many of the current tactics used in coaching are not actually beneficial to the coachees and are not sufficiently developing employees’ ability to problem-solve on their own. In the book, Zenger and Stinnett consistently outline specific steps leaders can take in order to best cultivate their coaching skills. They also make the point that coaching is not limited solely to one-on-one coaching sessions, but can be used in a variety of problem-solving situations throughout the workplace involving various employees, bosses, and co-workers.
