Coaching for Organizational Change

  • Russell Grieger
Chapter

Abstract

I stumbled into organizational consulting and coaching quite by accident. One day, late in the 1980s, I got an unexpected phone call from Lucy C, the Director of Corporate Services at the University of Virginia’s School of Continuing Education. She requested that I teach a one-day seminar for business leaders on the topic of “Doing What You Love, Loving What You Do.”
