<p><strong>New York &mdash; June 26</strong><br />Gregg Thompson, president of Bluepoint Leadership, wants to make one thing clear: New leaders need to step up to a new role to win the war for talent &mdash; a war that can be fought and won within the organization. </p><p>Thompson maintains that coaching is no longer the sole domain of external professional coaches.</p><p>&ldquo;Leaders at all organization levels are being asked to be more coachlike with their team members, colleagues and even their customers,&quot; he said. &quot;Unfortunately, many of us who lead organizations find ourselves ill-equipped to provide that coaching &mdash; it&rsquo;s not that we lack the requisite interpersonal and leadership competencies, but that coaching requires us to engage in uniquely challenging relationships and conversations.&rdquo;<br /><br />To provide the secrets of coaching for high performance, Thompson, along with Bluepoint Leadership Development Director of Coaching Susanne Biro, have written &quot;Unleashed! Expecting Greatness and Other Secrets of Coaching for Exceptional Performance.&quot;<br /><br />In the book, the authors unveil the Great Expectations Model of coaching, which challenges us to become the kind of person from whom others genuinely want to receive coaching, to create relationships that confront real issues and to engage in performance-changing conversations. </p><p>&quot;Unleashed!&quot; provides a remarkably simple and straightforward process that draws upon the timeless approaches employed by great coaches and leaders, and it also incorporates the very best practices professional coaches employ. <br />&nbsp;<br />The book provides step-by-step, easy-to-implement tips whereby readers will learn how to:<br /></p><ul><li>Understand what high-performance coaching is (and is not).</li><li>Identify the qualities of an effective leader coach.<br /></li><li>Recognize their strengths as a coach and what is required in the coaching role.<br /></li><li>Better understand the coaching process.<br /></li><li>Identify their own self development work and personal growth curve.<br /></li><li>Better understand current leadership challenges.<br /></li><li>Search for opportunities to coach those they manage and lead for performance.<br /></li><li>Participate in the personal growth of others while developing high-performance coaching skills.</li></ul><p>&nbsp;</p>
