He has designed/facilitated many learning-journey programmes and, since 2004, culture change programmes too. Off-the-shelf ones include: Management & Leadership Development Programs and Coach Development Programs including those that provide coaching skills for use in day-to-day management in the UK Health Service and elsewhere. The undercurrent to his courses is based upon practical learning that can be applied in the workplace the same day and also about personal development: for self-actualization, understanding others and personal effectiveness.

Angus designed highly successful web-based learning journeys in coaching and related subjects at different qualification levels for about 20,000 learners, most recently at the AMA Coaching School where he is Principal.

Dr Angus McLeod is a coach and author. He regularly contributes at international conferences, with many published articles on team and coaching performance in the international press. He has held over a dozen corporate board appointments starting in retail, environment, power, chemical and, more recently, in people-development organizations.

Dr McLeod is Visiting Professor of Coaching at Birmingham City University and closely associated with the thriving Business School where his research interests include applied research in coaching & leadership.

He provides a great deal of free resources for managers and coaches on his website at Angus McLeod Associates, including a huge range of videos.

His books are translated into a number of languages including Russian, Polish, Italian and Chinese.

He launched the first e-mentoring product in the world, 'Ask Max', with others in 1999. Angus also co-created the not-for-profit coach-development organization, The Coaching Foundation, in 1998.

He works from Worcestershire in the UK and from Philadelphia in the US.

24 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Ross Maynard VINE VOICE on 22 Mar 2004
Format: Paperback
NLP enables us to develop the crucial behaviours, techniques (verbal and non-verbal), and mindsets that deliver excellence in communication and influencing. NLP can, therefore, be invaluable in business and in coaching because it helps us, and those we interact with, to achieve clear goals. Angus McLeod's book effortlessly applies a range of NLP, and other, techniques to business coaching. Easy to read and full of examples, this book is essential reading for all coaches. I also recommend it for those interested in the applications of NLP to management since it explains and illustrates many NLP tools extremely well. Indeed, I have never seen techniques such as anchoring, submodalities and logical levels better explained in a business context. Personally I would have liked more on the meta-model, and on the presuppositions of NLP, but this is a minor point. Overall this book is excellent and highly recommended for business coaches and managers alike.

The book is very good, it captures the essence of Coaching with some hard hitting facts. As a studying Coach the different techniques discussed, when used, constantly catch individuals unprepared for such dialogue. Well worth the expence for an anvancing Coach.

Format: Kindle Edition
Whether or not you are new to coaching this is an important book. I
read it when starting out as a coach in 2003. Re-reading it I realise
how much I learned that easily became second nature. Because coaching
is about creating a good space for the coachee/client it can feel as
if there is not much to it. The client/coachee does it all. But it is
the `not much' that is important, the attentive respectful listening
and the well-timed good questions with so much skill behind them.

Angus quite rightly says `...the skills of the coach can be more of a
way of "being"' than a package of skills used for coaching
intervention.' And it is crucial to keep learning and revising your
skills in order to make the most of your own way of being as a coach.

In 'Performance Coaching' Angus McLeod teaches through dialogues
between himself as coach and different coachees. This brings life to
the techniques. The examples are from coaching at work, but are just
as useful for freelance life coaches and others who wish to master
coaching skills for professional helping conversations. You can see
exactly how gentle questions enable coachees to find new understanding
and confidence, and how people become able to identify practical
steps. Everything Angus does as coach is explained in accompanying
linguistic tips, tools and interventions, so you can easily transfer
skills into your own work. He includes NLP, story-telling, `Clean'
metaphor work and much else which is valuable to know for coaching.

Buy `Performance Coaching', read it, re-read it and make good use of a
very thoughtful and practical book.

Judy Barber, author of Good Question! The Art of Asking Questions to Bring About Positive Change. Coach, Clean facilitator and Workshop leader
