ABSTRACT
The author argues that leadership values will be effective when coaching has been aligned to the business goals of organizations. She contends that coaching interventions of many organizations can be flawed before they even start because of a lack of courage and money. She encourages organizations to measure cost of coaching programs against the need to address critical issues in personnel management.
