The Renewal Coaching Fieldbook outlines the seven practices that leaders can learn and develop in order to sustain their energy to do meaningful work. These practices enable leaders to bounce forward in the face of loss, create networks of support, make wise and timely decisions, and engage in personal renewal daily. Throughout are compelling stories of leaders who have overcome the challenges that seek to diminish and overwhelm them, and succeeded in doing meaningful work for a greater good. Praise for Renewal Coaching Fieldbook "Elle and Douglas have written an important book that could change the way business is done by changing the lives of people doing it. In our fantastically connected planet, worldwide commerce impacts all of us immediately, making almost nothing more important for our long term success than committing to meaningful work lives aimed at the 'greater good.' As Elle and Douglas suggest, individual happiness and global happiness will be the outcomes. If this is what you want in your own life—and I hope you do—read this book!"—Rick Foster, co-author, How We Choose to Be Happy and Happiness & Health; publisher, SustainableHappinessCourse.com "The questions in this book will help you generate new ideas and ways of thinking about your predicaments. They will provide you with the way forward to hope, excitement, and satisfaction in service of a greater good."—Daniel J. Pesut, PhD, RN, professor of nursing, Certified Hudson Institute Coach, Indiana University, Indianapolis "This is not a fairytale approach to leadership where all is good and everyone is happy. It is a skillfully written manual that addresses the challenges and hard times leaders experience and makes resiliency visible and sustained happiness attainable."—Dr. Kristine Servais, former principal and professor of leadership, North Central College, Naperville, Illinois

The healthcare environment is in flux. On the one hand, doctors are being driven into ever larger group practices by increasing regulatory and administrative burdens and the need for greater negotiating power. At the same time, growing infrastructure costs and the threat of payment reform is pushing them into closer alignment with hospital systems. This rapidly changing environment requires a more sophisticated set of leadership skills. This book introduces a unique and practical coaching style as a way of interacting with colleagues, managing direct-reports, helping others solve problems, responding to change, making effective choices and developing professionally. It draws from four evidence-based models for interacting with others and facilitating change - solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and transactional analysis – and reframes them so that they are congruent with managerial and leadership terminology and provide a practical set of methods and tools for today’s healthcare leader.

According to Alan Fine, every one of us has the capacity for greatness. So what is it that's stopping us from reaching our true potential? The answer: too much information. Most people who want to get better at hitting golf shots, negotiating with clients, delivering presentations, or any field of endeavour - seek out new information. They read a book, take a class, employ an expert tutor. But as Alan Fine has learned from many years of coaching athletes and businesspeople, this 'outside-in' approach often doesn't produce the results people want. More information becomes a distraction rather than a solution, and high performance remains elusive. Fortunately, there is a better way. Fine has developed and honed a unique 'inside-out' approach to performance improvement which is not about gaining new knowledge, but instead about using the knowledge you already have. Through a simple four-step process, Fine shows how to remove the obstacles that get in the way of applying your existing skills to unlock your natural potential. No matter who you are or what you do, this book will help you get better.
