Coaching is very big business. Over the last decade it has become one of the most popular approaches to personal and business development. Coaching books tend to focus on just one method, and just one of five main areas: Executive coaching (for senior business people); Business coaching (for companies to improve results); Life coaching (for people who want a better sense of fulfilment and wellbeing); Sports coaching (for individual athletes); Team coaching (for teams in sport or business) Pragmatic and informative, How Coaching Works is the first to explain the key concepts that underpin all of these different areas. It also explores how different ideas have blended to give rise to what we know as 'coaching' today, and singles out what works. The authors are two of the world's leading experts in this field. In How Coaching Works they have created a must-have book for practising coaches, students and anyone interested in the subject.

Brief Coaching offers a new approach to coaching by considering how the client will know when they have reached their goal, and what they are already doing to get there. The coach aims to work towards the solution rather than working away from the problem, so that the client's problem is not central to the session, but instead the coach and the client work towards the client's preferred future. This book employs case examples and transcripts of sessions to offer guidance on: looking for resources rather than deficits exploring possible and preferred futures examining what is already contributing to that future treating clients as experts in all aspects of their lives. This practical guide includes summaries and activities for the coach to do with the client and will therefore be a useful tool for both new and experienced coaches, as well as therapists branching into coaching who want to add to their existing skills.

The first reference to bring scientifically proven approaches to the practice of personal and executive coaching The Evidence Based Coaching Handbook applies recent behavioral science research to executive and personal coaching, bringing multiple disciplines to bear on why and how coaching works. A groundbreaking resource for this burgeoning profession, this text presents several different coaching approaches along with the empirical and theoretical knowledge base supporting each. Recognizing the special character of coaching-that the coaching process is non-medical, collaborative, and highly contextual-the authors lay out an evidence-based coaching model that allows practitioners to integrate their own expertise and the needs of their individual clients with the best current knowledge. This gives coaches the ability to better understand and optimize their own coaching interventions, while not having to conform to a single, rigidly defined practice standard. The Evidence Based Coaching Handbook looks at various approaches and applies each to the same two case studies, demonstrating through this practical comparison the methods, assumptions, and concepts at work in the different approaches. The coverage includes: An overview: a contextual model of coaching approaches Systems and complexity theory The behavioral perspective The humanistic perspective Cognitive coaching Adult development theory An integrative, goal-focused approach Psychoanalytically informed coaching Positive psychology An adult learning approach An adventure-based framework Culture and coaching

According to a recent study, there is a 40% failure rate among executives in the U.S. today. To combat the difficulties inherent in assuming high-level corporate roles companies are using new tools to help executives achieve maximum effectiveness, including the hiring of an executive coach. This unique book, written by a trained psychologist and executive coach with decades of experience as a business executive, offers a step-by-step guide to the practice of executive coaching. Using actual case studies, the author builds a multidimensional approach to coaching; clients are encouraged to look at multiple forces in their lives, including the Individual and the Organization, Unconscious Forces, Multi-Level Forces, and their Use of Self. Examining each force then guides the executive coach in joint goal setting, commitment to a coaching contract, meeting objectives, evaluating outcomes, and concluding the coaching process. Written specifically for graduate students--of applied psychology and related disciplines--who wish to practice executive coaching, this text will enlighten anyone in business who would like to use executive coaching to improve his or her organization.
