Transformational Coaching to Lead Culturally Diverse Teams
Save the date for the launch of "Transformational Coaching to Lead Culturally Diverse Teams".
"This book is a marvelous contribution to the emerging field of team coaching. Dr Stout-Rostron and her contributing authors have produced both a review of extant team coaching models and contributed some new models for team coaching specifically aimed at respecting and capitalising on the cultural diversity found in today’s modern workplace. They explore systemic and developmental approaches to team coaching. In doing so, they contribute to a more sophisticated understanding of team coaching and coaching more generally."
– Dr Michael Cavanagh, Deputy Director, Coaching Psychology Unit, The University of Sydney
“Sunny has this knack. As a top researcher and coaching professional she sees. And then she digs. And then she confirms. And then she writes, giving us the gift of seeing, too. And soon rumblings and shiftings and leapings become the norm, and the world is different. Her latest book does all of that again, and on probably the most important issue of our time: cultural difference. If you transform your team along Sunny’s lines (and that of her very able colleagues), you will, I am sure, feel the gratitude to her that I feel every day. Our differences are music. This book makes sure we build a symphony every time we meet, every time we think together, every time we decide, every time we act. And soon we cannot un-see this sonorous reality ever again. It becomes our own wisdom.”
– Nancy Kline, Time to Think, Inc.; author of Time to Think and More Time to Think.
“We can no longer ignore the global platform of this digital age, further compounded by the unprecedented cultural mix in team composition. This seminal text, contextualised in relationship systems intelligence, offers expertise and knowledge that prepares and elevates your offering as a team coach. A text that I highly recommend you view as a must-have reference in all your preparations for team coaching.”
– Dr Lise Lewis, International Special Ambassador of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC), London.
“In this timely and useful book, the authors draw on their considerable experience and address key concerns and approaches to team coaching, stressing the importance of culture and the role that diversity plays in the process. Systems Theory is fast emerging as the dominant discourse for coaching in organisations, and the models offered here do well to expose its importance. Highly recommended reading for coaches working with teams.”
– Dr Marc Kahn, Global Head of HR and OD, Investec Plc; Visiting Professor of People, Organisation and Strategy at Middlesex University, London.
