The Art of Coaching for Servant Leadership: A Guide for Coaches, Managers, and Anyone Who Wants to Bring Out the Best in Others
Are you the type of person who wants to grow and help others reach more of their potential? Do you want to be the very best version of yourself as a leader, family member, professional, and coach? Have there been people of influence in your life who have helped you achieve more than you thought possible? Then The Art of Coaching for Servant Leadership is for you! The three authors, Ann McGee-Cooper, Ed.D, Deborah Welch, Ph.D, and Duane Trammell, M.Ed. have been recognized for their work in servant leadership, coaching, and teaching. They have creatively written a book in dialogue form, inviting many professionals into the conversation about how a servant leadership approach to coaching will activate people’s gifts and strengths.
They use stories to make connections, share lessons, and navigate through difficult experiences. One helpful take-away from the book is the “Coaching with a Servant’s Heart” model. It describes what servant leadership coaching IS and IS NOT through interrelated areas of the inner work of a coach, the foundation of trust through relationships, and mutual learning through partners. In addition to author stories, there are twelve contributors who share their experiences from having participated in servant leadership coaching. They offer their own personal insights about how growing as a servant-leader can be a liberating experience resulting in engagement, energy, meaning at work, and enhanced capacities. The 140 page book offers deep insight for those wanting to take the “next step” with understanding the inner journey of servant leadership and bringing out the best in others.
