Coaching Skills: What does it take to become a great or even perfect coach?

The No 1 best-selling author of ‘Coaching and Mentoring,’ Prof Nigel MacLennan has made the techniques of coaching easily, quickly and learned for a very low, no-brainer, investment.

"Here are the simple truths of how to develop people, children... The skills are what every manager and parent should have as the absolute basics. I’ve applied these skills at home and in business and they work." Eugine Brazil, Managing Director, Reality

“I thought ‘The Perfect Coach’ was fantastic, on each of the 3 times I read it.”
Cymon Giles, Senior Sales Manager, St Gobain Group

“I took it home with me and prepared myself for the experience of ploughing through the typical management instructional ‘tome’. However, I found myself being drawn into the story, with its two characters as they explore what coaching means. The narrative is deceptively simple and there’s just enough of a storyline for you get to like the characters and to be hooked. On my way back to work the next morning, I was surprised how the main principles of coaching came easily to mind, thanks to MacLennan’s ability to bring managerial skills to life in such a easily-digestible way.”
Richard Neale, General Manager. National Trust

Rob Brown, Head of Management Development, Iceland Foods Plc
