"My only complaint is that I wish I had this book fifteen years ago! Coaching has become a critically important part of my work with leaders on change. Bennett and Bush provide a sound practical framework for those of us who coach people who lead and manage change. Leaders often know what they need to do, but something gets in the way. Effective coaching can help our clients remove those stumbling blocks. I believe that Coaching for Change gives us a discipline for engaging clients in those critical conversations."
