Coaching for performance used to mean the assessment of objectives that determined whether or not an employee was satisfactorily getting the job done. Now, with incorporation of emotional intelligence, it's not enough to simply coach what people do; leaders must now address how people do their job. How, as a leader, do you address topics such as character and personality? How do you communicate how well people work with others? How do you increase your own emotional intelligence?
Coaching for Emotional Intelligence by Bob Wall addresses these issues and can help guide managers through the potential problems in coaching direct reports. Based on 26 years of experience, Wall addresses the requirements to be effective in coaching for emotional intelligence and lays out a strategy to help managers address issues such as personal behaviors and communication styles. Scripts and exercises are included as well.
The book is an easy read that every manager can use to better coach direct reports and enhance personal emotional intelligence skills. It removes the mystery from the subject and describes emotional intelligence in simple, logical terms. The book is designed for every leader and every coach—because, as Wall says, "...if you aren't coaching, you aren't leading." —Melissa Thompson
