Overview

Coaching / Edition 3

Coaching: Evoking Excellence in Others is an insightful, thought-provoking guide that dissects the art and science of coaching.

Beginning with theories, concepts and models, the book moves on to consider rigorous methods of practice and self-observation in a relationship of mutual trust, respect and freedom of expression. It will probe you to rethink how you relate to your clients and your staff, how you produce long-term excellent performance in yourself and how you can become more effective in helping others to achieve their goals

This third edition includes a new chapter on communication and a new central case study that runs throughout the book to illustrate the impact of the themes and concepts discussed in the book.

Coaching, 3rd edition is a rich learning resource guide for new and experienced coaches who want to challenge their methods of partnering with clients. It is also an inspiring guide for training managers and leaders, human resource development managers and general managers who want to develop their teams.
