Executive coaching is one of the most expensive investments organizations make in leadership development. Yet, conducting executive coaching engagements as individual, disconnected assignments with nothing to guarantee alignment, continuity, and cultural consistency is an expensive mistake at best.
In Enterprise-wide Coaching, Dr John Hoover skillfully uses his decades of experience in consulting organizations and coaching individuals to suggest how and why coaching leaders should be aligned with organizational goals and must keep the voice and interests of the organization alive in all coaching engagements.
The Ten Commandments will also help managers of coaching functions in organizations and the coaches they hire to design and structure organizational coaching engagements through an organization development lens. This will ensure that the coaches paid for by an organization for the purpose of developing, correcting, or enhancing management or leadership skills and behaviors in individuals and groups will work in tandem with the organization's talent, leadership, and global business strategy, thereby producing maximum return on the coaching investment
'John Hoover and Enterprise-wide Coaching: The Ten Commandments are planting a flag in the ground for taking a systems approach to coaching across global enterprises to strengthen the fabric of their leadership tapestries'.

'Implementing leadership coaching interventions in corporations requires large investment in terms of money and time for planning, execution and monitoring. However, the desired outcome from such coaching engagements often does not translate into results at the desired level since the organization could not derive significant benefits from its large investment. The reasons could be many, and hence it cannot be generalized in defining critical success factors for such engagements for different types of organizations. However, Dr John Hoover's latest book Enterprise-wide Coaching: The Ten Commandments rightly identifies the missing link. On the basis of his vast experience in organizational transformation through executive coaching, along with a strong academic background in behavioural science and experience of cutting-edge practices in human resource functions, Dr Hoover strongly advocates making the organization a co-client in coaching engagements to ensure the voices of both the leader and the organization are heard and honoured in coaching engagements. This book is a great resource for organizations with a strong belief that leadership coaching is not a one-off event but needs to be conducted enterprise-wide. I am confident that the reader of this book will gain new insights on how to effectively deploy coaching throughout the enterprise as well as challenge some of the dysfunctional processes'.-Dr Sraban Mukherjee, "Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC), Professional Certified Coach (PCC) Author of Corporate Coaching: The Essential Guide and Competency Mapping for Superior Results: Getting Maximum from Your Talent
