Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed with this book and I would give it zero stars if I could. The main message is that to be a coach you don't need any qualification. I think this is a very dangerous statement. There are plenty of individuals who wrongly believe to be "qualified" without having any academic certification and embark in the coaching profession because they incorrectly believe they know better. The damage these people can do is immense. I found this book really disappointing and on the wrong side of comical.

The tone of the author is very patronising, arrogant; he feels to be the only person who knows it all (and for being a coach that's exactly the wrong way to do it!). The impression that I have is that this is just a marketing tool for the author.

Leaving aside the ethical implications (which are a pillar of the coaching profession), whether you are a beginner or like me an experienced pro I strongly suggest to pass on this book and spend your money on something of much better quality and substance by a true professional like Marshall Goldsmith.

This book went straight in the only place where it belongs: the bin.

A must read for anyone serious about developing a professional and successful lifestyle as a coach. The book is jam packed with idease, concepts and plain good sense. I have been coaching for 23 years, I wish I had read this 23 years ago!

Really, really like it. To be a coach you don't need qualifications (although they may be useful), you do need to be able to help your client clarify and reach their objectives, and run and market a business. This book is a huge resource of practical frames, approaches and techniques to help you do so. I suspect the book will appeal more to seasoned business professionals, but is worth a look at by anyone who has an interest in developing a coaching business.

Fresh perspective 28 Jan 2011
By Wayne - Published on
Format: Paperback
Full disclosure: I have sought the advice of Alan Weiss at various times beginning a decade ago. In fact, I now feel qualified to give out my own advice in this area however; Alan always amazes me with how quickly he conceptualizes new ideas in ways that I had not thought of.

I know, someone is bound to say that there is nothing new under the sun, and I'll agree, but Weiss has a way of making "uncommon sense" tangible so that even bumbling fools like me can figure out how to do something with it. Apparently smart people do even better with it.

Take the accelerant curve on page 187 of this latest book. (new intellectual property that hasn't appeared in his other works that I am aware of).

At first glanced I couldn't read the words across the bottom of the diagram because I thought that they were upside down--until I realized I was holding the book incorrectly. When I rotated the book sideways, I suddenly gained a completely new perspective. That`s the way it is with this kind of material, and, unless I try applying it to my business and keep it fresh in my mind, I never have those moments of discovery.

In this book, I found that the way Weiss applies his approach to the field of coaching, provided me with a new perspective. For those who have read his other works, this book is not ground breaking but it certainly provides a few new ideas and is a nice tune-up. For the advanced reader familiar with his work, I would probably recommend a deeper treatment such as the one he provides in one of his other books, but if this is your first time seeing his approach to coaching, you are likely to find Million Dollar Coaching enlightening and a good starting point for improving your practice. I personally found it a good refresher and gathered a few new ideas that I am going to apply.

Reality Check for Coaches 19 April 2011
By A. B. Services, Inc. - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have been a self-employed small business coach for seven years and this new book by Alan Weiss is a real 'smack of reality.' It contains lots of new and innovative tips and ideas, plus emphasizes many long-standing principles associated with building a successful coaching practice. Mr. Weiss makes it clear he has very little respect for most coach training schools and credentialing programs; he is critical, even condescending of 'Life Coaches;' and several sections will be more valuable to those who provide corporate coaching. Overall, I respect and admire the extraordinary success Mr. Weiss has achieved in this profession and I would strongly encourage both experienced and new coaches and consultants to read, "Million Dollar Coaching."

Right Directions 24 Jan 2011
By Ken Lizotte - Published on
Format: Paperback
There are so many "coaches" out there with a framed certificate on their office wall and not much else. What's frequently missing is insight and imagination, and that's where Alan's book (and indeed his coaching perspective) comes in. With many good years of experience in consulting, speaking, training and, yes, coaching too, Alan knows how to frame the effective questions and serve up significant answers. If you feel a need to add coaching to your repertoire of business and consulting skills(and you should), or perhaps you simply aim to become a full-blown coach (but one that matters), get your hands on this book. It will send you off in a variety of right directions.

A must read for serious coaches 28 Jan 2011
By Kelli Richards - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a must have on the shelf of any serious coach. As important as making a difference in the lives of your clients is ensuring you're armed for the success you deserve. Weiss makes powerful points about both how you think about yourself as a coach as well as how you present yourself for maximum contribution and impact. He also goes into some detail about approaches and methodologies you can leverage to create highest impact results; and also some things coaches should stop doing that are sabotaging their wealth. Helping clients create shifts that transform their lives is priceless. At the same time, if we can acknowledge our value and our role in those shifts as high impact coaches we can create significant wealth for ourselves in doing the work we love that makes a difference. Coaches are leaving hundreds of thousands of dollars on the table year over year. After reading this book and following Weiss' advice, there's no longer a reason for us to do so.

Million Dollar Coaching value is priceless 22 Jan 2011
By David Gardner - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you want to add coaching as a value proposition or simply expand your perspective about what it means to add value as a coach and learn how to do it, buy "Million Dollar Coaching" and learn from a real expert. Few coaches and speakers make 6 figures a year much less 7. Readers who do more than peruse this book can dramatically increase their earning potential if they think about and apply the concepts that are so well-articulated. Alan...please keep writing books like this. I'll keep buying and benefiting. Thanks for your invaluable insights and perspectives!
