 What Can Coaches Do For You

In the seventeenth century, the French statesman Cardinal Richelieu relied heavily on the advice of Father François Leclerc du Tremblay, known as France’s éminence grisefor his gray monk’s habit. Like the famous cardinal, today’s business leaders have their gray eminences. But these advisers aren’t monks bound by a vow of poverty. They’re usually called executive coaches.

The Corporate Athlete - Jack L. Groppel and Bob Andelman

Mental, physical, and emotional fitness is the subject of the program, which is aimed at the busy executive who's lost his sense of how to take care of himself. By balancing rest, training, and mental preparation and accepting stress as necessary, you can approach work performances like sports events and be totally focused when the bell rings and the meeting starts. The advice on nutrition, sleep, and exercise is especially good and delivered without any fussiness. The substance is there, so that most corporate jocks can ignore any minor glitches the book has and find a lot of value in the program.

Good to Great - Jim Collins

"Can a good company become a great company and if so, how?" In Good to Great Collins, the author of Built to Last, concludes that it is possible, but finds there are no silver bullets. Collins and his team of researchers began their quest by sorting through a list of 1,435 companies, looking for those that made substantial improvements in their performance over time. They finally settled on 11--including Fannie Mae, Gillette, Walgreens, and Wells Fargo--and discovered common traits that challenged many of the conventional notions of corporate success. Making the transition from good to great doesn't require a high-profile CEO, the latest technology, innovative change management, or even a fine-tuned business strategy. At the heart of those rare and truly great companies was a corporate culture that rigorously found and promoted disciplined people to think and act in a disciplined manner. Peppered with dozens of stories and examples from the great and not so great, the book offers a well-reasoned road map to excellence that any organization would do well to consider.
