The Leadership Edge: Responding to Inputs on “Coaching Quicksand”

D Surrenda, L Thompson The International Journal of Coaching in Organizations 2003

We would like to thank all the writers for their thoughtful and stimulating reaction to our paper. We deeply appreciate their time, their interest and their investment in the discipline. Each writer’s input raised relevant questions that can be considered at length in other papers that will no doubt be written as we collectively attempt to further clarify the processes and policies that frame the field of executive coaching. We have chosen to address two of the concerns and questions that seem to arise in each of the papers. In order, we will address: {1} the relative newness of the coaching profession, and {2} the role of the coach vs. the consultant.
