Praise for Renewal Coaching

"Renewal Coaching is a clear, provocative, and exceptionally useful book. The clarity and conviction that's only gained from years of experience shines through the authors' skillful writing. Their philosophy, concepts, and practices are extremely relevant for leaders in today's chaotic world."
—Margaret J. Wheatley, author of Leadership and the New Science

"Renewal Coaching is a must-read for anyone working with organizational change and renewal through coaching—from school principals to co-rporate leaders, from staff developers to individuals. Reeves and Allison provide a clear, coherent, well written, and imminently useful set of ideas and activities that can be applied immediately."
—Kent Peterson, author of Shaping School Culture: The Heart ofLead-ership and The Leadership Paradox: Balancing Logic andArtistry in Schools

"In Renewal Coaching, Reeves and'Allison provide a fresh, practical approach to leadership success—based fundamentally on purpose. Their frame-work for success transcends the usual emphasis on profit and personal satisfaction.'It looks to idealism as the well of energy—and therefore, of sustained success and renewal in both personal and professional life. Exceedingly well-written, and with clear, compelling details-'and exer-cises,'-the authors show us 'how' coaches and clients can indeed 'change the world' one simple, practical interaction at a time."
—Dr. Mike Schmoker, best selling author

"The process of Renewal Coaching is a 21st century, cutting edge app-roach to an essential leadership concept. By promoting commitment to the world beyond an individual, the job, or the organization, Renewal Coaching provides a wide range of tools and techniques that will inevitably improve performance, boost results, and significantly enhance relationships. This is a must-read for all leaders."
—Dr. Gene Klann, portfolio manager, Individual Leadership Development
