‘Implementing leadership coaching interventions in corporations requires large investment in terms of money and time for planning, execution and monitoring. However, the desired outcome from such coaching engagements often does not translate into results at the desired level since the organization could not derive significant benefits from its large investment.
‘Innovation is both essential and messy. Disruptive professional coaching for leaders inside organizational systems is innovation. Dr Hoover’s book cogently describes the reason coaching is hard to be explicitly clear about as a standalone professional practice. A focus on the nature of human development for leaders means we must consider the systemic influences upon an individual leader and his or her teams.
‘Contextual coaching clearly positions the organization and the individual as co-clients with equal responsibilities as well as potential gains. In an increasingly complex world, this collaborative approach most efficiently maximizes the benefits of a coaching engagement and provides a framework for an ethical partnership with the coaching provider. Dr Hoover’s model offers his substantive, well-grounded and systemic approach in straightforward language with clear reasoning and specific tools’.
