Product description


Leadership coaching is gaining growing acceptance in India as an important input in preparing senior business leaders for the top jobs. The authors’ unique approach of presenting real-life case studies is very effective in providing insights into common issues that leaders deal with, and how they can be handled.
(Roopa Kuduva Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, CRISIL)

An engrossing account of real-life cases that highlight the complex situations of leadership development. It is enriched by the fact that it is put together by accomplished professionals who have been on both sides of the table. Told in a narrative that is engaging, the book is a great ally for mentors and aspiring leaders alike.
(Harsh Goenka)

This book is the ‘Panchatantra’ of Executive coaching. The authors, who are pioneers in Executive coaching in India, have developed keen insights into the challenges facing aspirants to the corner office, and have presented real-life case studies to illustrate the core tenets, distilled from their insights. The stories themselves are very absorbing and the underlying truths are even more so.
(R. Seshasayee)

These cases are stories of our everyday professional lives. We see, in each one of them, a bit of our own selves, a slice of our context, and shadows of our colleagues. Leaders aspiring for the ‘Corner Room’ need to be able to style flex, as one dominant style will have limitations.
(Santrupt Misra)

When it comes to developing global leadership competencies, our ‘world view’ and what we choose to give attention to, from a contextual intelligence perspective becomes important—how we use language, how we demonstrate nonverbal behaviour, our communication style, our attitudes and values towards groups and community and our time consciousness. All these aspects define and shape our leadership. These cases illustrate how coaches with credibility, senior leadership experience and global exposure are able to help enhance the contextual intelligence of their coachees.
(Anil Sachdeva)

This book takes us through twenty-five enriching journeys of personal and professional development. The authors distil very valuable, experiential, insightful and practical insights from these narratives, relating them to the Indian context, and presenting them in a creative and very engaging format. A book with immense value, not just for aspiring leaders, but for all professionals looking to make an impact and a difference.
(Anand Nayak)

A path-breaking book set in the Indian context that wonderfully blends key coaching insights with reinforcing case studies. The authors’ deep understanding of coaching comes alive in this easy-to-read book that distils the essence of typical leadership challenges encountered by persons aiming for the C-Suite. A must-read for coaching practitioners and senior leaders!
(A. Krishna)

Most often, development of leaders is left to chance—but this book shows how transformational changes in behaviour can be obtained by focused coaching inputs. A must-read for all CEOs to understand how they can develop their future leaders. Equally, a must-read for all aspiring CEOs to gain insights into the barriers to realizing their leadership potential and how they could overcome them. (Krish Shankar)

Behaviour is the ‘vehicle’ through which we deliver what we know and can do. These behaviours are shaped by our attitudes and beliefs towards many things we encounter. While these attitudes and beliefs are useful aids in our life journey and allow us to ‘fit in’ and grow, when the world around us or our context changes significantly, these beliefs can become obstacles to effectiveness. The case studies in this book illustrate how leaders’ attitudes and beliefs need to be worked with to bring about sustainable behavioural change for greater effectiveness.
(Zahid Ganjee)

While more and more leaders seem to be realizing the need to leverage coaching to improve their effectiveness, the cases in this book raise important questions about some of the conditions that need to be present for such coaching interventions to work. This includes searching questions that the coach and coachee need to ask themselves.
(R. R. Nair)
