The Future of Coaching
New Book – Out Now

I am excited that my new book “The Future of Coaching” is published, and available to order now.

The Future of Coaching

Vision, Leadership and Responsibility in a Transforming World

Hetty Einzig, leadership coach, best-selling author and Editor of Coaching Perspectives

Hetty Einzig examines the role of coaching and leadership in the twenty-first century, and sets out a compelling vision for its future. Drawing on experience gained over twenty-five years of coaching leaders in the corporate and public sectors, in the UK and globally, she challenges the tenet of coaching neutrality. Rather than neutral observers, she encourages coaches to see themselves as courageous partners in leadership and to work towards building an ethical, holistic and networked coaching approach to help create businesses that serve society and our globalised world.
