Igniting the third Factor

Numerous studies have proven that coaching can increase performance much more than skill-focused on the job training. Most managers, never master the basic principles of successful coaching. Dr Peter Jensen in his book Igniting the Third Factor, describes five practices that characterize exceptional coaches and explains how each can be used in any leadership setting. He profiles five key factors which are fundamental in business coaching. All five factors have a common denominator: they are all grounded in a strong developmental bias, the goal is to inspire individuals to actively participate in their own development. Jensen calls this individual-driven development the Third Factor.

In Igniting the Third Factor, Jensen encourages leaders to ignite the Third Factor in their performers, employees, and workers through self-management, trust building, imagery, uncovering and working through blocks, and embracing adversity.

I am still reading this book, but what i have so far grasped is enough to set me on a new path towards imparting and bringing the best in all the people i interface with. I strongly believe if you take time to read this book, you will experience the same effect and you will never be the same person again.

This is a must have book in your library. Remember reading broadens your horizon.

Happy reading!!!!

How to Grow When Markets Dont

Waal, it has been more than a month since a posted any book review on this site. I have been travelling and hardly had time to read any book. I am now back and postings with valuable reviews on business books will start flowing from today. I have just finished reading a very interesting and challenging book by Adrian Slywotzky, Richard Wise and Karl Weber. It’s a book called 'How to Grow When Markets Don't.

It’s a truly eye-opening business book, which shows how old-line companies are creating new profits through "demand innovation." This powerful approach focuses on recognizing the opportunities that surround a product instead of merely improving the product itself. Used in a variety of industries, demand innovation asks: Where do customers spend the most time and money in areas related to my product or service? How can I help them improve their operations, reduce their risk, or grow their own revenues? The answers lead to huge growth opportunities for both business-to-business and consumer markets.

This book is packed with many other thought-provoking success stories, insights on how to mine your company's hidden assets, and "moves for Monday morning" that can immediately improve your bottom line, HOW TO GROW WHEN MARKETS DON'T addresses today's economic challenges by providing powerful and practical strategies to generate new growth.

This book is a must have for all business managers. Buy this book today here:

Happy reading!!!!!!
