This beautifully-written book, by one of the UK’s most experienced and highly-regarded executive coaches, provides a clear and concise introduction to psychodynamic concepts and their practical application to executive coaching. The book illustrates the value of this perspective for coaches and allied professionals and shows how they can incorporate it into their work.

To bring her coaching practice alive, Catherine Sandler shares numerous examples of her client work, including three full-length case-studies. She describes exactly what she does when coaching, and why, explaining step-by-step how psychodynamic concepts influence her practice. In particular, she demonstrates how the skilful use of psychodynamic insights can enable coaches to: understand their clients in depth, including those thoughts and emotions that lie ‘below the surface’; forge strong working relationships with their clients that rapidly engage them in the coaching process; promote significant, observable improvement in their clients’ behaviour and performance at work; help clients to remain effective and skilful even when under pressure; deliver real benefit to the clients’ organisations.

Executive Coaching is designed for executive coaches and allied professionals who would like to learn more about how psychodynamic psychology can be applied to executive coaching. While the author works mainly with senior role-holders, the ideas and techniques described are relevant to any individual who has responsibility for leading, managing or influencing others.

This is an oustanding book -- one of those rare books that will be of great value to both the beginner and the seasoned practitioner. The author also integrates theory with case material in an unusually seamless and instructive way.
