This book will change the way you think.

In this whacky world the best jobs go to the worst people. Careers fizzle out at the drop of a hat. To protect next year's budget you've got to waste whatever's left of this year's money. Matrix victims quietly go missing. Companies merge and frequently go bust. And everything's tightly controlled by a secret underworld Finance mafia.

Does this sound familiar? You've entered the rough and tumble realm of corporate business where crazy things happen and it's tough to survive. Welcome to the counter-intuitive playground of organizational life.

Come along for a white-knuckle ride through our organizational theme park. Your companion guide is the streetwise Dr. Fink— the world's expert on organizations. Allow this amiable practitioner to share with you the wisdom through which he consistently achieves corporate, client, and personal success as he demonstrates his magical methods for averting calamity before your very eyes.

Assisted by a cast of flamboyant characters—including Matilda the well-meaning but meticulously incompetent coach, Fat Sid in finance, Adrian his top enforcer, and Mort the undertaker who runs operations into the ground—join Dr. Fink on an illuminating journey down dark corporate alleyways to get the full low-down on what's really going on.

And if after the trip you should ever suspect an impending disaster surfacing in your organizational life—all you have to do is ask yourself one simple question: What should I ask Dr. Fink?

"An extraordinary work that will stand the test of time." —Marshall Goldsmith

The first comprehensive guide to using executive coaching in organizations • Based on the authors’ rigorous original research with dozens of leading companies • Includes extensive case studies, examples of coaching tools, advice on measuring ROI, and much more The field of executive coaching is growing at an astonishing rate. Corporations are increasingly turning to coaching as an intervention, as it offers leaders and managers both on-the-job learning and built-in follow-up. Human resource and leadership development practitioners must wade through a wilderness of conflicting information about when to use coaching, how to do it well, and how to evaluate the cost-effectiveness and success of any coaching intervention. Executive Coaching for Results helps this critical leadership development technique come of age. This is not a how-to-coach book—there are already plenty of those—but rather a comprehensive guide on how to strategically use coaching to maximize development of talent and link the impact of coaching to bottom-line results. Underhill, McAnally, and Koriath draw on their rigorous original research with Fortune 1000 and Global 500 companies such as Dell, Sony, Johnson & Johnson, Disney, Unilever, Wal-Mart, and many others to cover topics like coaching as part of an overall leader­ship development strategy; typical activities and instruments used during coach­ing; costs of coaching; development of an internal coaching program; selection of the right coach for the job; the ROI of coaching; follow-up after coaching; and much more. Offering practical learning, best practices, and illuminating case studies, this is the first definitive guide to the effective use of executive coaching in the corporate environment.
Get on the cutting edge of organization development

Practicing Organization Development: Leading Transformation and Change, Fourth Edition is your newly revised guide to successful organization development. This edition has been updated to explore the cutting edge of change management, leadership development, organizational transformation, and society benefit.

This edition offers both theoretical concepts and guides to practical applications, providing you with the knowledge, techniques, and tools to put organizational development to effective use in the workplace.

Organization development is an evolving field focused on understanding and positively impacting the human system processes of groups, teams, organizations, and individual leaders. Thorough organization development results in increased effectiveness, improved health, and overall success. This book shows how to attain positive change by: identifying contemporary themes in organization development, executing organization development approaches, as well as elevating and extending research agenda. This book also illustrates how to influence organizational stakeholders, and how to use this influence to enact key organization development practices. This new edition is enhanced by:

Updated chapter-by-chapter lesson plans, sample syllabi, and workshop agendas Revised sample exercises, a test bank, and additional case studies Expanded online appendices that cover regional organization development concepts from around the globe, as well as overviews of additional special issues

Organization development is quickly becoming an important aspect of MBA curricula. Practicing Organization Development: Leading Transformation and Change, Fourth Edition gives graduate and doctorate program participants a comprehensive overview of organization development, the resources to learn the field, and the tools to apply their knowledge.

The systematic management of executive talent is a key strategic challenge for most large corporations. This is an emerging field and, consequently, there is a lack of consensus about what is involved and a variety of approaches have been adopted. In Developing Executive Talent Jonathan Smilansky, Ph.D. summarises the key activities and concerns of large businesses in the USA and Europe that are focused around the identification, development and effective utilisation of executive talent. In doing so, he provides even the most experienced Human Resource executive with a much broader array of inputs about what today's leading organizations are doing in this area.

What quickly becomes clear is that even the best businesses are still developing their talent management processes. There are no 'right' answers and different organizations, with different levels of commitment, at different stages of development and in different environments produce different approaches. Developing Executive Talent is a map that lets you compare your organisation's approach with what others are doing in this area. It also grants you a close-up view of alternative processes designed to identify and develop the leaders of tomorrow. By learning from the experience of others you can become an 'educated consumer' of talent management services, and help both your organization and your own career.

With quotations from Heads of Human Resources describing their experiences and concerns, specific tools and processes used by large businesses to identify and manage the leaders of tomorrow, Developing Executive Talent offers the clearest and most coherent picture to date of how leading organizations are tackling this critical business challenge.
