The Leadership Superpower

By Kevin Wilde

“Much has been written about being a coach; almost nothing about being coachable. This marvelous book fills this gap and offers any leader tips on how to seek, respond, reflect, and act on being coachable.

Kevin’s clever insights and useful tools make this a must-have for any leaders.”

“This is a brilliant book, illuminating and providing answers about a huge void in the literature of leadership development and talent management. Using his 34 years as a highly successful CLO, and now a university fellow teaching executive MBAs, the author shares penetrating insights into the causes of all leaders’ success or failure.

Coachability: The Leadership Superpower is at once an extremely insightful treatise about a vital capability for new and experienced leaders everywhere, it is also an enormously helpful gift to all coaches and leadership development professionals.”
