The authors draw on proven ideas from psychology, technology, and others to create an easy-to-understand path to make good coaching inevitable and bad coaching impossible.

This book helps you create a framework to improve your coaching practice. You learn that you need not be a doctorate student or academic researcher to be part of transformational studies. If you're having trouble finding a coaching style, business niche, or growing your career, it is time to ground yourself in knowledge to discover new more profitable ways to coach.

Others are too inflexible and believe they have to follow well-known coaching formulas to replicate success.

You will fail until you develop your own process.If you do not do your own research, you stay at the level of the knowledge you use. Doing your own research will help you develop your own style. This book will help you create a proven system that can make your practice successful. Learn the rules, then break them.

ground your coaching practice in science

develop your coaching style

take your clients where no client has gone before

. . . and much more
