5.0 out of 5 stars Never mind the width, feel the quality! 6 Feb 2008
Running an Executive Coaching practice, where I have personally delivered thousands of hours of coaching, I approached this book with a healthy scepticism. Was this a book where as many people as possible submitted their names so that they quickly could claim to be `an author'? (I say this with my opinion informed as author of The Coaching Parent). In fact, and the reader will form his own opinion, I believe that for at least 80% of the work this is not the case and either new, or refreshed material is offered. I have annotated significant amounts of the text and found it an excellent product overall. Highlights - having seen Grant in London, I found his piece on Solution-focused coaching worthwhile. Also it was great to hear the thoughts of Alexander on his Grow model.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellence in excellent!! 25 Jan 2008
I feel this is the coaching book I've been waiting for and I suspect many readers will feel the same. It is not for the beginner, but for any experienced coach, coach supervisor or trainer of coaches this is a rich source indeed.

The book is essentially an anthology, but with recurring themes throughout each contribution. Many of the chapters are also presented under a set of uniform headings which makes comparing and contrasting ideas and approaches very easy. There are contributions from many of the better known commentators and a full range of topics from `What is Coaching?' to `Coaching Ethics'

The book is structured in three parts. In Part 1, The Business of Coaching, Frank Bresser and Carol Wilson provide a chapter on exactly what coaching is while Katherine Tulpa and Alex Szabo present chapters on `Coaching within organizations' and `Setting up and running your coaching practice' respectively.

Part 2 is dedicated to coaching models and approaches. This is the central part of the book and includes eight chapters ranging from a detailed examination of the ubiquitous GROW model from its originator Graham Alexander to a look at how coaching can contribute to managing stress by Cary Cooper and Maria Alicia Pena.

The Third part is concerned with professional issues with a chapter on ethics by Allard de Jong and one on coaching supervision from Dr Peter Hawkins.

Each chapter is a well-thought out summary of a given topic from an author with a particular interest. As such different readers will favour different contributions but I would encourage anyone to read all of the book as, in its entirety, it represents a tidy overview of the profession as it stands today.

I have found this to be a very helpful and practical guide to my own coaching work. It summarises a range of coaching models in a very readable way and the authors illustate well how you can apply them to your own coaching practice. A number of chapters also consider some of the business and ethical issues executive coaches need to pay attention to if we are to serve our clients well. The book is well laid out and very accessible. It is has become a well thumbed book on my bookshelf!

Lots of theory and practical issues are covered - as well as different approaches to coaching. Useful book to use as a reference and overall coaching guide.

Easy to access.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book 24 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as I needed extra readings for my Diploma in Coaching for Performance assignment. It's a good book however I preferred Sir John Whitmore's book ' Coaching for Performance' or Jonathan Passmore's book ' Excellence in Coaching. The industry guide'. What I preferred the most in Carol Wilson's book was the case studies.
