"Manfred Kets de Vries has written a very generous book. Anyone interested in improving organizational performance through strengthening management teams will find both rich theoretical foundations and multiple practical tools to guide executive choices. Moreover, the author invites the reader to learn the intricacies of group leadership coaching—a successful methodology he developed at INSEAD. Unlike other coaching books, this one offers a detailed guide to group coaching and a plethora of real–life examples. The book is a great resource for managers, HR professionals, and executive coaches."
