    Author and CSA Accredited Supervisor Brian Duggan 

    I invite you to walk with me and reflect on what I think it means to be a coach. I hope this walk will help you to find your own meaning. Perhaps more than anything this book is an invitation to explore 'coaching' from the inside out.

    One reviewer said: "Excellent self development - a best read for managers, supervisors, mentors, coaches, or anyone interested in helping people grow"

    by CSA Accredited Supervisor Janet Harvey

    When is the last time you visibly and boldly challenged the status quo? It might be a tough question to answer. Uncertainty about what’s on the other side of the familiar and comfortable stops many of us from taking action. And yet, we continue to stay stuck, unaware of our roadblocks, and without a meaningful way forward. What can be done? We must intentionally “invite change.” Janet M. Harvey’s, Invite Change, is born from her decades of work coaching C-suite, people managers, and leaders who care deeply about solving personal, professional, and social changes at their very root.

    The purpose of this book is to challenge the status quo, provoke discussion, and quench a thirst for something different in the way people contribute and influence their workplaces and their communities. You want the freedom to lead authentically, to generate results that allow for thriving communities. What is the necessity and opportunity of this time—especially now during our shared, expansive disruption during the Covid-19 pandemic? To learn how to invite change that inspires and activates each person to answer our tough social questions at the root so we all may prosper. To invite this change we have to lean into an opportunity that many deem an obstacle and a reason to turn back away from greatness—fear. If you’re longing to lead with authenticity and sovereignty, if you’re looking to get unstuck from the “same old” while pushing past fear and the antiquated status quo, then pick up a copy of Invite Change…today!

    Report from An Action Research Inquiry to Explore the Relevance and Value of 1:1 Executive Reflection to Leaders in a Global, Virtual and Diverse World
    by CSA Executive and Faculty: Elaine Patterson, Jackie Arnold, and Dr. Alison Hodge January 2020

    Leaders, particularly in global organisations, are facing increasing pressure to perform and deliver results, with little time or incentive to pause and think or reflect on what they are doing or how to better resource themselves (Scharmer 2018)

    ‘Executive Reflection’ (or Leadership Supervision) is a 1:1 distinct practice. It provides a creative and reflective space and generative oasis for Leaders to gain deeper insights and awareness (“Helicopter-Vision”) that includes themselves, their work, their relationships and with their wider environment at work.

    by Khurshed Dehnugara and Claire Genkai Breeze

    This book is written for leaders that are challenging the status quo from the inside of large, established, institutions. As these organisations scale, we notice that complexity grows, their business models become entrenched and cultural barriers to change dominate. The greatest challenge leaders face at this stage is one of maintaining their energy, vitality and ability to innovate, in the face of the personal risk entailed in doing so.

    The100 mindsets captured here are written as an illustrated series of sharp, quick, paradoxical insights that disturb habitual corporate logic. The book is easy to pick up when five minutes are available, to remind the reader how easy it is to slip back into the comfortable armchair of conformity, and what to do to get out of it.

    Weekly Leadership Contemplations by Amanda Ridings Weekly Leadership

    This is a book for our times. It is for leaders, coaches and other practitioners who are searching for inspiration as they reflect on their leadership experiences and practice. It is a collection of fifty two short pieces, written to invite you to connect with similar moments in your own life and work and to consider them more probingly. The book is meant to be read slowly – it is a written ‘thought for the week’.

    The narratives are prompted by the author’s personal experiences and by thought-provoking themes brought to her attention by her executive coaching clients or by events in the world. Many of them highlight the ‘gap’ between our leadership aspirations and our ability to live up to them, and gently challenge the reader to hold themselves to account and to tackle this disparity. Throughout the book, readers are encouraged to make contact with their finest leadership spirit, and to anchor their choices in it. 

    ‘Weekly Leadership Contemplations is both elegant and practical. In the current swell of advice to leaders, the brevity and keenly focussed content are a welcome relief.  But do not be beguiled into thinking that these short pieces are lightweight!  They are the distillation of years of practice and of profound reflection on the dilemmas that leaders encounter daily, both internal and external. They offer subtle insights and imaginative strategies to the reader.

    Amanda has an exceptionally clear mind, which enables her to connect professional experience, knowledge of leadership discourses and her gift for using story to weave reflections that are accessible and powerful. The result is a timely and compelling addition to the 21st century leadership conversation.’
