Book of the Month – April 2021
This month, we have a double-bill for you
Be Fearless: Give Yourself Permission To Be You
What happens when a girl from the slums dares to dream?
She bags an engineering degree, a master’s degree from Warwick Business School in the UK and executive education from both Harvard Business School and Yale School of Management. She becomes a leader in the telecommunications industry. She mentors other girls and women to do the same.
In Be Fearless: Give Yourself Permission To Be You, Jane Egerton-Idehen covers her life as a daughter, wife and mother and her career. Drawing from her more than 15 years of experience as a telecommunication executive in West Africa, Jane’s driving ambition has been to help women build lasting careers, especially in the male-dominated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) industries.
Rising from the slums of Ajegunle in Lagos, Nigeria, to brokering million-dollar deals for global telecom giants, hers is a story of hope, of challenging traditional gender roles, and of embracing who you are.
This is an uplifting book about women for women – as well as for the men who love, nurture, support, and work with them at home and in the office.
Systemic Team Coaching
John Leary-Joyce & Hilary Lines
This handbook will be most relevant to those who have completed some training in Systemic Team Coaching, as well as those who would like to acquaint themselves with the core concepts behind this complex and powerful approach to working with teams.
With practical advice and examples, the reader is taken on a comprehensive journey through:
- The Five Phase SIDER process for enagaging with a team
- The Six Lenses through which a systemic team coach views the team
- The Hawkins Five Disciplines Framework that considers the internal and external influences on the team and guides the coach in attending where their work with the team will be most effective
- An introduction to the Team Connect 360 diagnostic tool to gain valuable data from its stakeholders on the performance of the team.
Case studies and examples are given throughout to illustrate how the theory is applied in practice.
In addition, the book addresses other important elements, such as how to develop the personal and skills capability to deliver the work, and which courses the coach should attend to build their Systemic Team Coaching competency.
