"While many executive coaches are increasingly seeing the value from using a strength-based approach in their work with leaders, Strength- Based Leadership Coaching in Organizations takes both the science and the application of strengths coaching to another level! Based on the latest research, this is a must-read for any practising coach, both internal and external to an organization, looking to further develop their people and teams."--Katherine Tulpa, CEO "Association for Coaching "
"Strength-Based Leadership Coaching in Organizations provides a rare and timely combination of scholarly critique and pragmatic application on the topic of positive leadership development. The overview and critique of leadership development research, and strength-based approaches in particular, in the first half of the book is impressive in both its breadth and depth. The second half of the book, written for coaching psychologists, leaders and managers, and leaders of work teams, spells out clearly how to apply the concepts and theories introduced previously. The author concludes with well-considered cautionary comments and criticisms of strength-based coaching, illustrating his extensive experience as a researcher and practitioner in this space, and his credibility as the book's author. The book represents a valuable resource for both researchers and practitioners who have few similar quality alternatives to consult in terms of combination of evidence-based and applied information."--Sandy Gordon, PhD, FAPS, ICPR Co-ordinating Editor and Assoc. Professor, Sport and Exercise Psychology "The University of Western Australia "
