Strength-Based Leadership Coaching in Organizations

Strength-Based Leadership Coaching in Organizations
  • Author : Doug MacKie
  • Publisher : Kogan Page Publishers
  • Release : 2016-03-03
  • ISBN : 0749474440
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

Positive organizational psychology, with its focus on the identification and development of strengths, is a natural ally to executive development and leadership coaching. However, this approach is only just beginning to come to the attention of organizations and consequently, the research base for strength-based coaching is in its early stages of development. Strength-based Leadership Coaching in Organizations reviews strength-based approaches to positive leadership development and evaluates the evidence for their effectiveness, critically assesses their apparent distinctiveness and considers how strengths can be reliably assessed and developed in their organizational context. Strength-based Leadership Coaching in Organizations reviews key areas of leader and team development and describes a model of strengths development in organizations. It discusses the application of strength-based leadership coaching from the managerial and external perspective within the context of career stage, seniority, role challenges and organizational need in order to facilitate meaningful change. Finally, it covers the limitations of the strength-based approach to leadership development together with the challenges of integrating positive leadership development. It shows exactly what a strengths focus is and that there is increasing evidence that this approach does get results. Where other books focus on one model of identifying strengths, this book offers a balanced and critical examination, showing how to apply a positive strength-based approach.

Applications of Strength-based Leadership Theory for the U.S. Army

Applications of Strength-based Leadership Theory for the U.S. Army
  • Author : Melinda Key-Roberts,Matthew Budreau,U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences

  • Release : 2012
  • ISBN :
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

"The purpose of this research was to determine what strategies military leaders use to develop subordinate leaders, and if the current developmental process aligns with a strengths-based approach to leader development. A total of 41 active military leaders were interviewed by researchers from the U.S. Army Research Institute. Analysis of focus group transcripts resulted in 32 themes related to developing subordinate leaders. Through comparing and aggregating these codes, the initial 32 codes were collapsed into six higher-order categories (i.e., establishing positive climate, building subordinate capabilities, inspiring subordinates, caring for Soldiers, managing teams, and leader self-development). Leader processes identified by interviewees are congruent with a strengths-based approach and are consistent with other leader competency models. In particular, providing feedback, identifying strengths and weaknesses, taking care of Soldiers, utilizing subordinates' strengths, and empowering subordinates are widely used leader development strategies that are also supported by strengths-based leadership theory. The benefits gained from utilizing a strengths-based approach to leader development are relevant to the U.S. Army's goal of building adaptable leaders and retaining Soldiers past their initial enlistment or commission. Introducing leaders to the ideas contained within the higher-order leadership processes could produce more motivated, efficient, and satisfied Soldiers."--Abstract.
