The Coaching Book

Coaching is an art, but it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an  answer or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable. Emotional intelligence can help leaders and coaches recognize how attitudes – both their own and those of the people they coach –prevent individuals from reaching their potential. 

In this practical and inspiring book, EQ qualified trainer and coach Nicole Soames teaches you how to develop a coaching mind-set, recognize who and when you should coach, adopt a disciplines approach to coaching, learn how to manage the coaching conversation and give and receive feedback so that you can embed new ways of working. This is a fresh and innovative take on the traditional, how-to coaching manual.

Next Is Now

Are you open to change? Are you aware of how much change your organisation is facing in the future? The simple truth is that business environments are under constant change, becoming more complex, volatile, and unpredictable day-by-day. Having the ability to prepare and plan for change and not just adapt to it is the only way one can survive in both business and in life. Yet countless studies tell us how difficult it is for individuals and organizations to change. Why? Because change creates an identity crisis which threatens our self-esteem, our sense of financial security and our belief systems. In this book, author Lior Arussy explores the reasons why we resist change and how to develop a new competence; change resilience. The book provides a step-by-step guide to help us approach change from a point of strength. Through vivid examples involving organizations ranging from Mercedes-Benz, Disney, Kia, Kennedy Center, Zappos, and other Fortune 500 companies, Arussy presents his proven methodology to improve `change resilience' and help leaders and their employees embrace change with passion and excitement for business success.

Teal Dots in an Orange World

In the last century, changes in technology have driven massive developments in the social economy. The Fourth Industrial Revolution demands new approaches to organizational structures and teams. A paradigm shift is emerging, putting engagement, relations, inclusion and freedom at the centre. We need small self-managed teams, in a team-of-teams structure to be relevant to employees and customers, and in order to adapt to a changing world. In his second book, Erik Korsvik Østergaard draws on the workings of Frederic Laloux, and his 2014 title Reiventing Organisations. Laloux discusses the five organizational stages to the modern workforce; the Red, Amber, Orange, Green and Teal stages. And with these writings,Østergaard presents arguments towards how the classical corporate structure at the Orange stage, has experienced a rise in teal dots, or rather, neo-modernist forms of team-oriented organisms, which express a reorganisation for the future workforce.
