Becoming Coachable

Unleashing the Power of Executive Coaching to Transform Your Leadership and Life

Good leaders maintain steady teams, achieve reasonable growth, and are comfortable in their authority. But great leaders recognize that unparalleled success comes from always seeking to improve. The stakes of leadership are higher than ever, and operating with maximum effectiveness is not only desirable but also imperative.

What the world’s most influential leaders know is that the secret to achieving that effectiveness is becoming coachable. And in order to do so, one must be ready to engage in the process of betterment, starting with investing in yourself in order to give the most back to your organization, team, and the world.

That’s where executive coaching comes in. Imbued with decades of experience at the highest echelons of the industry, Becoming Coachable guides readers through the ins and outs of a successful coaching experience. The authors—two veteran coaching experts and the world’s #1 executive coach—identify key leadership archetypes and unpack the intricacies of a typical engagement. They demystify the coaching relationship and outline a framework that hinges on the openness integral to reaping the most from such an experience.

Most important, however, is the invitation this book contains to propel a leader’s impact far beyond themselves. Illuminating the road to wielding leadership powers in a way that lights the path for all, Becoming Coachable is an ultimately revelatory read that will inspire you to take steps toward becoming a better leader, collaborator, and human.
