When people look back on your work, your leadership, what you have stood for and how you affected things in the world, what will they see? What will they say?
Having spent many years working with catalytic thinkers, leaders and bold organisations we’re delighted that our work on Legacy Thinking has made it into print.
As part of a book for professional working with leaders going through times of big change it’s been a delight to share stories, thinking, tools and approaches that help teams and leaders find new solutions to the challenges in front of them by going a long way forwards, finding the ‘north star’ and coming back.
It’s also a delight to be in there alongside such wonderful other contributing coaches and thought leaders.
The book launches on October 3rd – heres the press release information:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
How can coaches help their clients turn crises into a time of growth and resilience-building?
Coaching in Times of Crisis and Transformation: How to Help Individuals and Organizations Flourish, by Liz Hall, is published on 3 October 2015
Paperback, ISBN: 9780749468309, £29.99
‘Crisis’ is often a dirty word to be avoided, replaced with phrases like ‘difficult times’, or ‘challenges’. Liz Hall says it’s time to start acknowledging that coaching is not just for fair-weather times, that we need strategies for the toughest of climates and situations, and that it’s often nothing less than a crisis that prompts a request for coaching in the first place. And if we can coach a client through the processes of crisis, transition and transformation they’re more likely to emerge more resilient, resourceful and aware than before. “Through coaching we can support clients to turn towards their challenges, and it’s often the tough times that offer the potential for the most profound sustainable transformation”, says Liz.
Coaching in Times of Crisis and Transformation covers definitions of crisis from both the individual and organizational perspective, and includes insights on: adapting to change and finding opportunities in crisis, what neuroscience tells us about our reactions to change, transformative coaching, change models, supporting organizations in crisis, and how coaching and mentoring can act as preventative measures against crises.
Also includes a Foreword by Dr Tatiana Bachkirova and chapters by the following expert practitioners, researchers and academics: Professor Paul Brown, Tony Buon, Margaret Chapman-Clarke, Rachel Ellison MBE, Dr Anthony Grant, Professor Erik De Haan, Dr Anthony Kasozi, Andrew Kinder, Helen Leeder Barker, Dr Sean O’Connor, Dr Alister Scott, and Neil Scotton.
“The generosity in the material that is shared, the power in the stories, the vulnerability and honesty in the case studies makes this book an exciting and compelling read that brings you face to face with your own learning edge of working with crisis. This book stretches the assumptions of what it is to coach.”
Dr Alison Whybrow, Chartered Psychologist and Coach
