Executive coaching can dramatically boost a top achiever’s performance and career prospects. Fortune Magazine reported, “In a recent study, training alone improved leadership skills by 22%. When combined with executive coaching, improvement jumps to 77%.”

Drawing on twenty years of experience and direct research with CEOs and other global leaders, Battley reveals the insider secrets and myths about coaching-who is a qualified coach and who isn’t, how to contract and structure your coaching program, the science behind coaching success, and how to identify and measure results that really matter.

At the heart of COACHED TO LEAD is Battley’s conviction that leaders and those aspiring to leadership positions – whether they are corporate executives, technical professionals, academics, public officials, business owners or middle managers – need to understand how customizable coaching services can supercharge their success in rapid-change and highly competitive environments.
