Today’s organizational leaders must be able to motivate and engage employees to reach their highest levels of performance. Leadership coaching is one of the most powerful tools that a leader has to achieve these results. Coaching took on a more positive and less stigmatizing role when business conditions evolved again. As the pace of change quickened (often as the direct result of technological innovation), as organizations increasingly found themselves operating on a global scale, and as global competition increased the rate and scope of work, they could no longer rely on the vagaries of time and experience to develop their leadership talent.
