Overview

David Taylor's mission is simple. The Naked Coach is the back-to-basics book on coaching that will make sense of coaching and place it back at the very  heart of the business agenda.

It will make understanding, learning and teaching coaching simple. The Naked Coach tells real, practical, fun, exciting and above all else relevant stories that you can apply straightaway. David Taylor strips away the hype, jargon and mystery to give coaching a clear definition in all its forms, including mentoring, training, facilitation and interventions of every kind. The Naked Coach explains coaching without being patronising, defines without being arrogant, and does it in a fun, accessible way. It is coaching from a different perspective - yours.

The fundamental principle of The Naked Coach is to be yourself - always. Find what works for you, and do it, again and again and again.

Remember. No fuss. No Jargon. Just Great Ideas.
