This is a general book on coaching. It doesn't limit itself to athletic coaching, career coaching, or any specific type of coaching, but offers a wide range of very widely applicable tips and advice for coaches. The first section, "Coaching Fundamentals" gives advice on the coaching model set up by the authors and then how to develop a healthy, productive relationship with your clients. The second section is meant to help the coach hone thier necessary skills, such as listening, intuition, curiosity, and self management. The third section goes more into the relationship a coach develops with thier client, and discusses client fulfillment, balance, process, and the integration, application, and vision of all the material in the book. The book closes with a coaches tool kit that includes appendixes that tailor to each type of coaching a little more in dpeth.

Discover what's new in this classic work that helped define the field of coaching.

With the first edition of Co-Active Coaching, Laura Whitworth and her pioneering co-authors set the stage for what has become a cultural and business phenomenon, and helped launch the professional practice of coaching. Their flexible Co-Active Coaching model has stood the test of time as a transformative communication process that co-workers and teammates, managers, teachers, and students can use to build strong and collaborative relationships.

In this new edition, the authors reflect today's reality of how coaching has moved beyond its initial focus on life skills to become an integral part of an organization's toolkit for developing leaders. Already used as the definitive resource in dozens of corporate and professional development programs, Co-Active Coaching has been updated to include the latest terminology and a variety of fresh coaching examples drawn from the authors' firsthand experiences with thousands of international coaching trainees and clients. The power-packed Coach's Toolkit has been expanded to include more than 35 exercises, questionnaires, checklists, and reproducible forms. And a CD containing sample audio coaching sessions, and printable forms from the Toolkit, have been added to make these proven principles and techniques practical.
