What are the real issues facing those at the top of the corporate tree?

Elizabeth Coffey and coaches from The Change Partnership address the primary concerns of today's CEOs:

  • Developing bifocal vision

  • Getting the organizational structure right
  • Creating time to maximize CEO impact
  • Energizing the organization through leadership
  • Delivering strategy through the top team
  • Managing the board
  • Communicating with all of the stakeholders all of the time
  • Meeting the diversity challenge
  • Surviving in the global jungle
  • Balancing your work/life demands

    Each chapter sets its subject in context, explains a specific challenge, defines a set of desired results and then shows how the client was guided to achieving those results. Finally,it suggests the questions you should ask, and answer, before tackling a similar challenge.

    To maintain the confidentiality crucial in coaching, eight chapters are fictionalized scenarios based on real life cases. Two,however, illuminate innovative leadership through actual examples: a multinational ’s top team development initiative, and the UK Senior Civil Service ’s current ethnic minorities programme.

    Offering practical frameworks and compelling insights into the realities of life at the top, it is required reading for every incumbent CEO and ambitious senior executive.
