2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jane Harders on 7 Oct 2012
Format: Paperback
This well-researched book provides a wealth of contexts for the use of coaching within education.
The first part of the book is skilfully edited to present the reader with expert views on the full spectrum of coaching opportunities - from coaching educational leaders, to coaching parents, children of all ages and coaching adults within higher education.
Part 2 focuses on the presentation of powerful case studies which provide practical and contextual illustrations on the power and impact of coaching within primary, secondary and higher educational establishments.
An engaging and thought-provoking read for those within education - and the wider coaching community - as the authors' observations on positive psychology and the challenges in developing mindset are highly relevant and applicable to other organisational contexts.
Highly recommended.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Margaret Barr on 22 Sep 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This key text engages the reader with an overview of coaching in education and the exploration of a wide range of educational contexts for coaching, complemented by illuminating and relevant case studies. There is a reassuring depth to the arguments made, yet the book is very readable.

The book supports the development of coaching cultures for learning through evidence-based practical examples, with contributions from experts in the UK, the USA and Australia.

Coaching in education is examined within the contexts of educational leadership, the practice of teaching, coaching for staff and learners in primary, secondary and higher education, and coaching for parents. There is an interesting consideration of the role of mental toughness in developing young people. Positive education (a strategic approach to the integration of coaching psychology and positive psychology) is explored, and the reader is left with a sense of anticipation and excitement about the enormous potential of coaching psychology and positive psychology in education.

As a student of coaching psychology and a former head teacher, I have been inspired by this practical and refreshing text.

Christian is a well respected coach within the education field and this book is testament to that due to all the fantastic academics and coaches who contributed to the book. It reads and flows very well with prior chapters providing a context for subsequent chapters. I have learnt so much about coaching specifically in schools from reading this book and it provides an in depth look at how effective coaching is within education and why it is so vital for schools to invest in it. Buy/read this book to inform and enhance your knowledge further - a must read!

Comprehensive approach to Coaching in Education 15 Jun 2014
By Jhon Alexander Baquero - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It has a comprehensive approach to Coaching in Education, and shows different approaches of how coaching can be implemented in different educational settings with different roles or actors that are relevant in such process.
Very intresting.Important for all educators 22 May 2013
By Dr. Gilli Beskin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finally, a book on this very exciting, important and promising topic of using coaching in the education field. The author took on the mission of trying to cover much of what is done in this field in educational systems around the world using research- based knowledge. Coaching still has a relatively small amount of documented empirical research, particularly concerning coaching in the educational field. However more experience is gained each year and putting it all together gives an interesting overview. This knowledge about different uses of coaching, mainly meant to create better experiences of learning in schools, is relevant for all educators, for coaches and scholars.
I found many chapters very interesting and a wide relevant range of activities and research documenting its success. Nevertheless, I thought that the coaching world does not end in the UK, USA and Australia and a wider look at things done in other places would add to the variety of information, specially as many scholars who took part in writing the book work in all these places so that what is done in one place is very much influenced by what is done in others.
A second point is that I found Cognitive Coaching missing. This is wrong historically as this is one of the first coaching frameworks to be thoroughly used and researched beginning in the early 80s in the States . This is also a specific educational version of coaching and this book, like much of the academic writings on coaching, is dominated by psychologists. This is not necessarily bad, but I feel it creates a bias of some sort and would like to see more educators writing research on coaching in schools (For example, Chapters 5 and 7 in the book present the use of positive psychology and of the toughness personality concept as the basis for work in schools).
Two last points- the first is technical- I read the electronic version and was disappointed not to be able to read any of the tables.
The last comment refers to the mixture of researched knowledge with practitioner type knowledge such as descriptions of detailed workshops for staff in schools. I am not sure all these belong together, or to the same types of readers, although I personally found it all interesting and enriching. That is why I dedicated the following series of books on coaching in schools to the second type only.This is one of themPlan Monitor Evaluate Using the Tracking Table (The KatomCoaching series everyday coaching for educators)
