This qualitative action research study of middle managers combined coaching, leadership development, and the Keirsey Temperament Sorter II(TM) (KTS II). Currently, published academic research provides no research for the use of the KTS II in combination with coaching for leadership development. A coaching intervention for middle managers was designed using content coaching based on Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award leadership criteria together with coaching focused on the manager's temperament. Participants' individual coaching plans were shaped by the managers' temperament type, with each coaching session building upon the previous coaching sessions in the study, reflecting the emergent nature of action research. During the study, the participants' observable application of the coached leadership behaviors were determined by multirater feedback obtained from supervisors, subordinates, and peers as observed since the coaching began, as well as from the participants' self-assessment of application of coached leadership practices. This study also examined how soon after the implementation of the coaching action plan changes occurred. In the use of coaching as the delivery method for this leadership development program, the researcher was also the coach in order to provide consistency in the coaching. The results of the study revealed an increase in observed leadership behaviors centered on the Baldrige competencies within one month of the onset of the coaching intervention. Recommendations for further research include additional longitudinal study of continued coaching in conjunction with application of the competencies for solidifying participant leadership practice.

When an employee leaves, there’s more at stake for your organization than just an open position that needs to be filled. Every company’s heart and soul—not to mention its bottom line—is dependent on the collective wisdom of its people. If you fail to plan for the sudden absence of those who have either been groomed to continue their ascent up the ladder—or those whose knowledge you simply can’t function without—consistent leadership and institutional memory can get lost in the shuffle. Every serious organization needs a succession plan. And now—as baby-boomers retire en masse and companies of every size and type feel the various effects of globalization, the economy, and other factors—it is more necessary than ever to be prepared for change. In this extensively updated fourth edition, Effective Succession Planning provides the tools you need to establish, revitalize, or revise your own succession planning and management (SP&M) program. You’ll learn how to: • Identify competencies and clarify organizational values for both planning and managing a succession program. • Plan for and quickly fill crucial vacancies at all levels from top management to sales, administrative, technical, and production positions. • Develop and retain top talent, building and preserving your organization’s intellectual capital. • Assess current needs and future resources for seamless succession planning. • Use the latest technology to organize and implement succession planning and management programs. Incorporating the results of two extensive new surveys, and including a Quick Start Guide to help begin immediate implementation, this essential resource reflects the latest trends and best practices in succession management. Packed with forms, tools, examples, and guidance, this is an essential resource for any organization concerned with retaining the accumulated wisdom built up over time by its most valued employees.

Who hasn’t asked the question “How can I find and follow my true calling?” Elle Luna frames this moment as “standing at the crossroads of Should and Must.” “Should” is what we feel we ought to be doing, or what is expected of us. “Must” is the thing we dream of doing, our heart’s desire. And it was her own personal journey that inspired Elle Luna to write a brief online manifesto that, in a few short months, has touched hundreds of thousands of people who’ve read it or heard Elle speak on the topic. Now Ms. Luna expands her ideas into an inspirational, highly visual gift book for every recent graduate, every artist, every seeker, every career changer. The Crossroads of Should and Must has a universal message—we get to choose the path between Should and Must. And it gives every reader permission to embrace this message. It’s about the difference between jobs, careers, and callings. The difference between going to work and becoming one with your work. Why knowing what you want is often the hardest part. It gives eye-opening techniques for reconnecting with one’s inner voice, like writing your own obituary (talk about putting life in perspective). It talks about the most common fears of choosing Must over Should—money, time, space, and the ultimate fear: total vulnerability—and shores up our hesitation with inspiring stories of and quotes from the artists and writers and thinkers who’ve faced their own crossroads of Should and Must and taken the leap. It explains the importance of mistakes, of “unlearning,” of solitude, of keeping moving, of following a soul path. Presented in four chapters—The Crossroads, The Origin of Should, Must, and The Return—inspired by the hero’s journey outlined by Joseph Campbell, The Crossroads of Should and Must guides us from the small moment, discovering our Must, to the big moment—actually doing something about it, and returning to share our new gifts with the world.
