Leadership Coaching offers a new model of coaching for leadership development. It explains how the brave model extends existing leadership theories, and includes specific coaching processes and sense-making techniques to allow the reader to understand how the model would work in practice.

The book begins by asking why it is important for leaders to be brave. It provides an overview of existing leadership theories, and their limitations, as well as introducing the brave coaching approach and the elements that comprise the model. The book includes practical case studies that provide insights into the range of applications for the brave leadership coaching framework.

Based on academic research, and written in an accessible scholarly style, this book shows how coaching can assist in decision making, leading to a different, braver form of personal and corporate leadership. It should be of interest to students of management, leadership, coaching and mentoring, as well as professional coaches and leaders.
