True competitive advantage comes not from new products, strategy, or process, but from human talent--from ordinary people achieving extraordinary results. Focusing on one of today's most popular techniques for developing leaders, improving workplace performance, and facilitating change, ADAPTIVE COACHING offers a first-of-its-kind, research-based approach to creating individualized, tailor-made learning opportunities that will close the gap between what companies and clients expect from coaching and the results it delivers. Rich in detail from the authors' work with more than 2,000 clients in Fortune 500 companies, ADAPTIVE COACHING offers a unique client-centered focus and solid research into how people prefer to be coached. Combining 30 years of experience as coaches and educators teaching others the art of coaching, Bacon and Spear deliver the tools and techniques coaches need to identify clients' real needs, negotiate expectations, understand and adapt to different coaching style preferences, manage the dialogue, and help clients change. The authors identify eight distinct coaching styles--teacher, parent, manager, philosopher, facilitator, counselor, colleague, and mentor. They also include numerous examples of coaching dialogue and explore in detail the special challenges of coaching across cultures and generations, and of coaching women, minorities, and C-level executives.

Counseling and Coaching in Times of Crisis and Transition explores how threats and challenges caused by rapid social and technological changes require counselors and coaches to rethink their usual ways of working, and, in some cases, even abandon their traditional theoretical anchors. The authors of this forward-thinking book argue that practitioners who aim to help others strengthen their resources can no longer afford to wait for clients in their offices or offer them protected, objective and neutral professional relationships. Contributors from around the world argue that there is a real need for new counseling and coaching actions to be delivered in different contexts: counselors and coaches should be able to use heterogeneous languages and interventions, as well as numerous relationship modalities and activities in order to streamline the support that they offer to people in sectors as diverse as health and well-being, life and career design, prevention and community inclusion, work inclusion, and schools. The book provides an evidence-based framework, with numerous counseling and coaching examples that are capable of promoting people’s strengths, whether this be face-to-face, in groups, or online. This book will appeal to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of counseling and coaching, as well as those with an interest in psychological, social and educational science. It should also be essential reading for practitioners and policymakers in a diverse range of contexts, including those working on intervention and support for vulnerable people, non-traditional and disadvantaged students, and people with disabilities.
