Positive organizational behaviour, with its focus on the identification and development of strengths, is a natural ally to executive development and leadership coaching. However, this innovative and evidenced-based approach is only beginning to be systemically applied to developing leaders within organizations. Strength-Based Leadership Coaching in Organizations outlines the current state of play in strength-based approaches, offers a balanced and critical review of existing models and theories and considers how strengths can be expertly utilized to facilitate positive leadership development.
As well as reviewing the evidence base and understanding the underpinning theories and models, readers will learn how to implement a strength-based leadership coaching programme in an organization, measure its outcomes and determine the ROI. Leaders and managers will discover how to extend a strength-based mindset into recruitment, engagement and beyond, as well as how to integrate a strength-based approach to team structures and leadership. In addition, the book discusses the challenges and limitations of strength-based approaches, including research and cultural criticisms, in order to illustrate what best practice in strength-based leadership coaching in organizations looks like.
