What is executive coaching? And, how has it emerged as such a strong subdiscipline of consulting psychology in recent years? Answers to these questions and more are provided in The Wisdom of Coaching: Essential Papers in Consulting Psychology.

Editors Richard R. Kilburg and Richard C. Diedrich have selected 39 essential articles originally published in the Consulting Psychology Journal: Practice and Research that delve deeply into what it means to coach senior executives in the world’s major corporations.

Along with the practical guidance offered by the numerous case studies, conceptual approaches, and methods presented in the volume by some of the finest thinkers in the field, the editors—both respected executive consultants—explain the history and evolution of executive coaching thus far.

This volume explores the various expectations held by practitioners, clients, and their organizations; the tactics and methods coaches use to help clients improve their performance in a variety of difficult situations; and the feedback given by clients in relation to their experience with coaching.

In sharing a wealth of perspectives and experience, this volume provides a solid grounding in the practice and assessment of executive coaching. Students interested in executive consulting and management as well as practicing coaches will find this volume to be a useful resource that will enhance their ability to deal with challenges and their ability to work with executives one-on-one.
