Now and in the future, reinvigorating employees, peers, and managers through coaching will be critical to the success of both leaders and businesses. More than ever, leaders need to inspire employees with contagious enthusiasm in order to deliver quality services and products. This first book provides refreshing ideas and strategies to help leaders cope with the demands and challenges of their calling.
