The unrelenting pace of business in modern organizations places constant pressure on employees, challenging the physical and emotional resources of both staff and supervisors. Consultants have become familiar with the survivalist mentality among workers, each struggling to improve production, solve intractable conflict, and chart realistic growth. Executive Coaching was written to help organizational consultants understand the chaotic processes and psychodynamic problems that influence executive behavior and performance. In engaging prose highlighted by substantial case illustrations, Kilburg examines organizational conflict and shows how methods and techniques developed in clinical settings can be applied to coach executives and management teams. Executive Coaching is an important read for consultants who wish to help executives develop human wisdom and to gain insight into the chaotic, "shadow" side of individual and organizational life.
