Format: Paperback
The 5 Minute Coach introduces a short and simple yet extremely powerful coaching procedure that can be used in any situation. It is very clearly explained with very specific instructions, clear examples, and a comprehensive troubleshooting FAQ section.
Ideal for the time-pressed manager but, indeed, for anyone who wants to help or get the best out of their workforce, their colleagues, their family and themselves.
For those of you new to coaching, it is a very straight-forward solution-focussed approach that will deliver great results. If you are already an experienced coach, it will introduce you to the world of "clean language" and its power. Can definitely recommend.

Format: Paperback
Although aimed at the business market The five minute Coach offers a clean language approach for working with others and equally with ourselves in all environments. i have already applied this with success in several meetings and with my child. In addition I tackled a difficult life issue of my own and got rapid insights which felt empowering. It is a deeply respectful process and helps us with truly listening as well as helping the other listen. This surely is the key to excellent communication.

I have found myself fascinated with clean language. I think it will become a mainstream tool as it is so effective and simple. This book is a great contribution.

Format: Paperback
What really hits you in reading this book, is that you just know it's been written by people who've really used this technique and achieved hard results.
This is demonstrated by its use of good, raw examples which show you how the approach works in the real world.
It's also written in extremely clear, concrete language which enables you get to grips with the subject as speedily as the book's title would lead you to expect.
Free of the bamboozling theory and tedious jargon which bedevils so many management texts, it talks you through every step of the process and, most importantly, provides tips on what to do when things don't go to plan.
An extremely practical, pragmatic, hugely useful guide.

Format: Paperback
As a pragmatist who likes to read a business book and apply the knowledge immediately, I found that The Five Minute Coach delivers what it promises: a rapid way to increase performance. I'm also a fan of de-mystifying the art of coaching to spread the benefits far and wide through society.

While already familiar with Clean Language coaching, the unexpected bonus came in seeing how the book makes the concepts of Clean Language accessible to the newcomer to coaching as well as experienced coaches. By comparison, many books on the topic leave the reader feeling that Clean Language is complex and academic and not appropriate with every client. My copy is bookmarked at the one page `crib sheet.'

This book is valuable for the keen manager to learn some basics of Clean Language coaching and get started very quickly with willing participants. As an experienced coach, I have found it useful to play with the framework for some speedy coaching with willing participants.

It offers a crystal clear five stage coaching framework in the first chapter and then unpacks this framework in more detail through the subsequent chapters. The explanations are supported by tips, stories and troubleshooting guidance. In particular, the authors offer step by step guidance on how to set up the session (what coaches refer to as contracting) so that the client knows what to expect with the particular style of questioning.

In the Coaching in Action chapter, the authors give a transcript of the coaching process together with a running commentary of what might be happening `inside the coach's head.' In this way they give extra insight into the split second decisions the coach makes as she frames the next Clean Language question.

Lynne Cooper and Mariette Castellino have produced a fantastic resource for Coaches and Clean Facilitators. They explain how you can use Clean Language to coach someone to take action in as little as five minutes. The book is based on the work of David Grove, Penny Tompkins and James Lawley, and provides clear instructions for moving through five stages of coaching, with plenty of examples and ideas for what to do if the unexpected happens. There are lots of ideas in this book that will help you to coach people without giving them your ideas and suggestions.
