"This book is organized into four sections. My coeditor, Richard C. Diedrich, has written brief introductions and summaries for each that introduce the articles. The first section contains articles that focus on definitions, history, and research on executive coaching and the commentaries that accompanied each of the issues of the journal. The second section pulls together the articles that emphasize conceptual approaches to executive coaching and contains the thinking of many of the finest practitioners in the field. The third section encompasses the articles that focus on specific challenges facing coaches, methods that can be and are used in coaching engagements, and the issue of standards of practice in the field. The final section provides all of the major case studies that have appeared in the Consulting Psychology Journal (CPJ) over the last decade or so. On the surface, it would appear that there are three major ways that any reader could approach this material. First, you could simply read it from cover to cover and address the material in each article as it appears. Second, you could browse your way through the volume, selecting articles that appeal to your curiosity or interest. Finally, you could strategically identify particular issues or problems in executive coaching that you are facing at any particular time and dive into the relevant material. Regardless of how you choose to work your way through the book, I think you will agree with me by the end that you have greatly expanded your knowledge of the field, appreciation for the depth and scope of thinking and practice that appear in these articles, and gratitude that the authors took the time to collect and express their thoughts on paper"--Introduction.
