Destined to Lead: Executive Coaching and Lessons for Leadership Development
In a field that’s crowded with how-to coaching books and academic tomes on organization and leadership behavior, Destined to Lead breaks away from the crowd with its specificity and candor on how real cases unfolded in the hands of one of the world’s most respected pioneers of executive coaching. Karol M. Wasylyshyn provides an essential and accessible response to a significant void in the executive coaching literature, arriving at a time when executive coaching is booming as a consultation opportunity under the broad umbrella of talent management.
Wasylyshyn merges her business background and training in clinical psychology to describe not only expected coaching objectives but how coaches can forge ongoing trusted advisor relationships. Anyone interested in the human side of leadership and harnessing leadership behavior as a competitive force will learn something from the tools and coaching techniques revealed through these cases. Executive reflections written by the men and women Wasylyshyn has coached to success further illuminate the powerful relationship leaders can form with the executive coach and trusted advisor.
