As of today, thousands of leaders across the globe have purchased a copy of The Coaching Effect book. We know this because we recently had to replenish our warehouse with a second printing of the book written by our very own CEO, Bill Eckstrom, and President, Sarah Wirth. Both authors have spent over a decade researching the activities, behaviors, and performance of leaders. They’ve now studied more than 150,000 coaching interactions in the workplace, primarily of sales teams, and have been able to determine how coaching affects team outcomes and growth.
Since the book we’ve heard numerous success stories on how the book has made a positive effect not only on the teams they lead, manage, and coach, but also the effect it has had on their confidence as a leader knowing what it takes to be a high performing coach. We also came to realize many were using the book as a team building and developmental activity within their department and/or company.
To make these group discussions more engaging, we decided to create a book discussion guide to go along with the book. The guide is meant to be a practical tool you can use with your team, or even individually, as a way to dig deeper into the concepts and best practices shared throughout the book. It will also introduce conversation starters to get you or your team thinking differently about leadership and coaching. You can learn more about the guide here.
If you’re wondering how the content in the book differs from other sales or leadership books on the market,
You might be wondering how this book differs from other leadership or sales books out there.
Here are three distinctions of The Coaching Effect:
1) It’s based on research and best practices, not opinion, while also incorporating real-life examples and stories of coaching successes that come from the author’s experiences from within as well as outside the world of business.
2) The book gives those in a leadership role a playbook of what they need to do to become high-growth coaches by being introduced to a step-by-step coaching methodology proven to increase results.
3) The information in this book will help leaders at all levels understand the necessity of challenging people out of their comfort zone and create a high-growth organization. This includes learning how to develop trust relationships, drive accountability, and leverage growth experiences to propel team members to the highest levels of success.
It is also considered an Amazon best-seller ranking in the top 100 books in the “Business Mentoring and Coaching” category for many weeks and has a 4.7 out of 5 star review average.
“The entire book is gold as the authors not only share strategies but they share specific examples from companies they have worked with. I found the chapter on meetings to be especially beneficial as they not only point out the issue but they provide solutions. Well worth reading… it has a return on investment written all over it regardless of the organization you might be in.” – Mark Hunter, Verified Purchaser
