Catalogues the pressures that a senior executive has to deal with, particularly at times of organizational change. Suggests that providing coaching (both for the executive and the other senior management team members) can help when these pressures become too great and the executive’s ability to lead the organization suffers. Explains how to provide such coaching services, setting out how to develop the relationship between coach and executive, and working through what is done in each phase of the coaching. Believes that this process will help executives to change their leadership styles and make them resilient and able to lead the organization effectively.
