Changing Change Management: Coach Leaders to Ensure that Change Initiatives are Followed Through for Each Employee

by Robin Broadnax

According to research, poor executive and leadership sponsorship is one of the primary reasons that organizational change projects fail to achieve their intended outcomes. As an executive coach and organizational change management practitioner, I have seen how taking a coach approach to supporting change sponsors is an effective way to address the challenges that these leaders face as they implement change. In this book, you will learn some of the same techniques and tools that I have used over the past 15 years to help leaders inspire others and achieve the goals that they have set for themselves and their organizations.
