Compass: Your Guide for Leadership Development and Coaching

An essential book on leadership development and coaching, Compass is the go-to reference to help you—and the people you develop—provide the leadership needed in any circumstance to galvanize teams, groups and entire organizations. It is ideal for leaders and managers looking to develop competency in themselves and others. A vital guide for training and development professionals—both inside an organization and external consultants— use Compass as a coaching tool and a blueprint for leader development plans.

View a sample of Compass to experience the up-to-date content that addresses 52 essential leader competencies, along with additional chapters critical to preventing derailment, goal-setting, and much more.

To further develop and fine-tune the leadership skills and competencies outlined in the Compass book, download free  worksheets from the Compass book’s Activity Center.

“You’ll want a copy of Compass! The authors have done a brilliant job of combining a ‘self-help’ book for leaders with a guide for professionals who are in the business of developing leaders. As a leader, the book is like having your own personal coach with its wealth of insights, self-reflective questions and useful online tools. As an Industrial/Organizational psychologist, I appreciate the years of research that underpin the ideas and the potential to apply the many resources for executive leadership programs I develop and deliver.”

- Vicki L. Flaherty, Ph.D., IBM Executive Leadership Development

“Leadership is navigation—lots of choices, hazards, and currents. The future will require great clarity of direction, but great flexibility of execution. You will need this Compass to find and hold your clarity.”

- Bob Johansen, Distinguished Fellow, Institute for the Future and author of The New Leadership Literacies
