About the ICF NYC Book Club

The ICF NYC Book Club is an opportunity for attendees to delve deeper into their learning from the book and to share highlights from what they read, implications for their coaching practice, and more. Book club meetings are not book previews or presentations and active participation and contribution is expected from all attendees. 

Meeting Guidelines:

  • Out of respect for our facilitator and other attendees, you are expected to have read the book, or at a minimum, significant portions of it, prior to attending so that meaning, intent and application may be discussed with depth.  Familiarity with the content enables a much more meaningful exchange and conversation.

  • As with any virtual call, please be prepared to have your video and audio on, with limited distraction.  Turn off all notifications.  

  • In order to receive CCEU credit, you must be present and actively participate.

  • Come in your pajamas! We don’t care about how you look or if you’re munching, only the intellectual contribution you bring.

Meetings will be held consistently on the second Monday of each month at 8 AM (except where may be otherwise indicated). 

Attendance at every meeting is not necessary.  You may participate based upon your preference for the book.  The intended purpose of this offering is to broaden and deepen our knowledge of current practices in the coaching profession and in the business world.

Please register early!  If registration is low, or non-existent, for any specific book, we will revisit the selection and float a poll to the membership to select a replacement book.  We therefore encourage participants to register early for meetings so that we may assess interest at an early stage.

About The Book

Title: Executive Coaching for Results: The Definitive Guide to Developing Organizational Leaders

Author: Underhill, McAnally, Koriath

Publication Date: 2007


This book will serve as the definitive guide and should be required reading for anyone responsible for designing and/or managing a corporate coaching program. It is written for leadership development practitioners, strategic HR, the talent management group, internal and executive coaches, as well as for executives and leaders seeking to make the most of their coaching experiences. The vast majority of learnings and examples could be applied to any industry, company, or organization. Likewise, the examples and experiences could occur in large, mid-size, or small organizations; private or publicly held firms; government entities; or start-up or established companies. This book offers a robust 3-D view of the industry, depicting the similar and contradictory perspectives of organizations, coaches, and leaders. No other publication on the market today can make this claim. This information is invaluable in its contribution to a holistic approach to coaching and the evolution of the industry. Although the book approaches the coaching field from the viewpoint and experience of the three authors, it is influenced by the research study and participation of organizations that have contributed feedback, callouts, and insight into their companies’ practices. We invite you as the reader to join the author, coaches, and practitioners from leading Fortune 1000 and Global 500 organizations in a journey to understand the state of the art in executive coaching and extend its impact in the business world. Yes, coaching has clearly come of age.

Executive Coaching for Results helps this critical leadership development method come of age. This is not a “how-to-coach book”—there are already plenty of those—but rather a comprehensive guide on how to strategically use coaching to maximize development of talent and link the impact of coaching to bottom-line results. Underhill, McAnally, and Koriath draw on their rigorous original research (through Executive Development Associates) with Fortune 1000 and Global 500 companies such as Disney, IBM, UBS, Unilever and many others, and combine that with their years of industry experience to advance the state of the art.

Executive Coaching for Results includes topics such as:

  • Integrating coaching into your organization’s overall leadership development strategy

  • Locating and screening coaches worldwide

  • Developing an internal coaching program

  • Deciding which coaching assessments and instruments are appropriate to your situation

  • Measuring the impact and ROI of coaching

  • Following up after coaching

Throughout, the authors provide numerous examples from major organizations such as Dell, Johnson and Johnson, Intel, and Wal-Mart. Offering practical learning, best practices, and illuminating case studies, this is the first definitive guide to the effective use of executive coaching in the corporate environment.
