Adizes PAEI and Enneagram book has been getting a lot of visibility around the world. After the successful seminar at the Executive MBA 51hyY+mtzCL._AA160_program at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, many requests for one-on-one coaching sessions for managers using PAEI & Enneagram were made. In Russia and Mexico, leading publishing houses are interested in translating and promoting the book in Russian and Spanish.

In Israel, the book was endorsed by the Technion’s prestigious coach training program. This is what Reuven Katz, head of the Coach Training Department at the Technion, and President of the Israeli Coaching Association (ICA) wrote:

“In the last fifteen years I’ve trained more than 6000 coaches. From my experience, the best and most effective tools are those that combine a large and profound theoretical and professional background, with the ability of a simple and practical application. The Adizes PAEI and Enneagram book presents step-by-step templates and tips for working with a variety of clients, together with a deep theoretical background, and is with no doubt an effective and useful tool for coaches.”

Download Your Free Book Sample – The Ideal Executive by Dr. Ichak Adizes

idealexecDr. Adizes’ premise, developed in this book, is that the ideal leader, manager, or executive—ideal in the sense that he can fulfill by himself all the roles necessary for the long-and short-term effectiveness and efficiency of an organization—does not and cannot exist. And that is the problem with contemporary management literature: it presents what the executive should do, (because that is what the organization needs) even though no one can do it.

All the books and textbooks that try to teach us to be perfect managers, leaders, or executives are based on the erroneous assumption that such a goal is possible. This book explains why it is not.
