FirstGlobal Partners publishes new book by Steve Chandler and Will Keiper “The Leader and The Coach-The Art of Humanity in Leadership”

PORTLAND, Oregon., September 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Gordon Moore, one of the founders of Intel said: “Change has never been faster and will never be slower again.” This couldn’t be truer than it is today.

Changes in the world of work and leadership have accelerated significantly since the arrival of COVID-19. Along with the rise of work from home, the Great Resignation, and seismic advances in technology, leaders in organizations are expected to provide employees with greater focus and well-being at work. Employees now want to be seen as more than just “human assets”. They want to be collaborators, to be heard and to have opportunities for autonomy and fulfillment.

How are leaders – traditionally valued for their ability to generate growing revenues and profits – supposed to create prosperous environments and also be more “human”? Leaders with traditional skills who embrace the humanity that underpins successful coaching can create powerful transformations for individuals, teams, and themselves. A leader capable of “coaching” the whole being of a person – body, mind and spirit – will be able to attract, develop, retain and optimize the talent of his staff.

These opportunities are explored in The Leader and the Coach – The Art of Humanity in Leadership from the perspective of a leader and a coach of leaders. Will be (William) Keiperis the leader, offering insights from his experience as CEO of NASDAQ, NYSE, and private organizations and as a professional business advisor. Steve ChandlerThe Coach, is a renowned coach of leaders and leadership coaches who gained his coaching expertise working with executives and teams at Fortune 500 companies and with thousands of individuals and coaches.

A leader today must not only see and understand these changes, but also be able to make sound decisions. The authors not only powerfully explain why leaders need to stand up to demonstrate greater empathy, transparency and authenticity in their roles, but also show how to achieve it. Some of the themes are: Creating an environment of psychological safety, Being more authentic and transparent. Develop and advance wellness initiatives, Create a sense of belonging and community, Support creativity and collaboration, Enable greater autonomy and self-management, Provide opportunities for personal development and recognition.

“In The chef and the trainer you get two distinct voices from two unique authors. Although there are many concrete suggestions. . . the book is more than just advice – it’s a book of wisdom. The authors explain how the best leaders become talent magnets, the kind of people who attract innovators and top performers. And here’s the interesting part: you don’t get there just by being a better boss; you get there by being a better person,” said Dale Dautenfounder of The Innovator’s Lab, syndicated columnist and author of Experiments never fail and The gifted boss.
