Raymond Lloyd Forbes Jr.

Abstract


This paper explores the historical and current world of organizational coaching.  Coaching is offered as a means of assistance to aid organizational leaders in effectively responding to the stressful external and internal demands associated with their positions or ones to which they aspire.  Coaching is also discussed as a vehicle for improving individual and team performance as well as for actualizing a leader's inherrent potential.  The work draws heavily upon current literature and practice in both the leadership and coaching fields.  It also provides a review of relevant theory, contrasts the roles of leader and manager, defines executive coaching, and survey's its brief history.  The paper concludes by noting important areas of linkagge between leadership and coaching, specifies the potential benefits for developing a viable connection, and identifies some of the complex issues yet to be resolved.
