Coaching

For Coaches

“It’s low on waffle and fluff, but adds meat to the bones where needed. I’d highly recommend it to anyone who is working in a coaching capacity.” 

“This is the kind of book that, after reading, you will want to have nearby for easy reference and reminders. I suspect that the well-worn pages will be a symbol of the book’s lasting contribution to coaching – and to transformational conversations. A clear, concise summation of coaching that will benefit the new and the seasoned coach alike.”
