JB: My guest today is Donna Karlin, a pioneer in the field of leadership coaching. Welcome back to OpEdNews, Donna. 

Joan Brunwasser: When we last spoke two and a half years ago,  your book, Leaders: Their Stories, Their Words, Conversations with Human-Based Leaders was about to be published. Time has passed. It's out. How has it been received? 

Donna Karlin: It's been received very well. It was chosen by Spirited Woman as one of Top 12 New Year's Book Picks in 2012 and is now gracing the shelves of libraries, schools and leaders' bookcases. Writing that book was a labor of love; to highlight human-based or values-based leaders in various fields, especially for those not usually in the limelight. 

JB: I'm glad to hear that. Congratulations. Many of our readers will not be familiar with the concept of leadership coaching. Can you help us out with that?

DK: We live in a complex world. Change is a constant, technologically, environmentally and organizationally. Leadership Coaching not only helps people lead teams and, in turn evolve their organizations in a world of continuous change and transition, but helps leaders learn how to embrace change. If leaders have a narrow perspective, what happens is lack of context (they're only seeing a small piece of the puzzle), and therefore only have a small range of choices to decide from.

Helping leaders shift the way they think and feel, how they behave and respond to problematic situations expands potential, raises ownership and accountability and stimulates paradigm shifts of perspective, individual and organizational performance and possibility.  So I help them broaden their perspective by illuminating behaviors within situations they're not paying attention to, introduce paradoxes, and co-create stimulating arenas and environments that expands their thinking.

JB: Speaking of expanding our thinking, I'd like to change gears and talk about another book you wrote, So You Want to Get Divorced?.  Tell us about it, please.
