3.0 out of 5 stars Fortunately, the fold was not over the balloon part, 10 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived quickly but when I opened the perfectly flat sachet, surprised to see that the diaphragm was folded and had been so for quite some time as resistant to unfolding.... Fortunately, the fold was not over the balloon part. I have fitted it and when I refill the oil sump, hope that it will work okay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Setting the situation and illustrating the gaps, 29 Feb 2012
Susie Linder-Pelz has thoroughly understood a broad subject and made clear sense of NLP Coaching and drawn a definitive line where there was none. But further, she shows where the gaps are and gives encouragement to those in NLP and Coaching who want to take our technology further and support it with good evidence. Highly recommended.

Good Question!: The Art of Asking Questions To Bring About Positive Change
Good Question!: The Art of Asking Questions To Bring About Positive Change
by Judy Barber
Edition: Paperback
Price: 19.97

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ammunition of Change, 28 April 2011
'Whatever level of coaching competence a coach is operating at there are only a few key elements that underpin the coaching process within the coaching dynamic: exquisite listening, questions at different levels of appropriate challenge and opportunities (silences) for the coachee to self-reflect.

Without exquisite listening and questions, the all-important self-reflection will not happen. Questions then, form the ammunition which fuels the vast majority of coaching interventions made internationally. Judy Barber has therefore done a great job in seeking a wide cohort of coaches to expand and develop ideas about how questions can be used, when they may be most effectively used, as well as understanding the underlying `intent' of the question. These overt `intents' enable the reader to confidently think about developing good questions of their own. Having set the questions into groups with common underlying purpose, Judy brings further clarity to the text as well as deeper learning.

Too many coaches bring their own obsession with goals into the dynamic. I recall one novice's opening gambit which was something like, `What amazing objective do you want in your life today?' and the response was, `my mother just died this week so I am wanting to deal with how I am now'. So good questions also include `sustainability questions' to check that the resources for change are available, that priorities can be changed if necessary to make space for effort. If someone close has just died, then something else might have to happen first, so the Grovian question, `And what would you like to have happen?' (provided in this book by Wendy Sullivan) is truly valuable. The enthusiastic coach through inadvertent `leading' will fail the coachee. As Judy puts it, `If you are more personally detached from the outcome and more relaxed than the coachee then they can focus on their own motivation and you can put your energy into being receptive to their agenda.'

Judy Barber's book includes questions to help coaches think much more deeply about what they are doing, not just what they are asking. For the reader who wants to understand more about the underlying messages, this book is a great library of source-material for creative thinking and advancement. What coaches might also like to consider is whether they are capable of coaching using questions designed only for the benefit of the client and not just to help themselves understand. When they do this, they are truly differentiating themselves from what Robert Dilts calls `small c' coaches. 'Good Question! The Art of Asking Questions to Bring About Positive Change' can help you to Coach with a capital C.

I Shall Not Hate: A Gaza Doctor's Journey on the Road to Peace and Human Dignity
I Shall Not Hate: A Gaza Doctor's Journey on the Road to Peace and Human Dignity
by Izzeldin Abuelaish
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Elevation of Spirit, 21 Mar 2011
Gritty human experience can be recorded in forms that may be captivating, shocking or moving. The author manages all three so the read is compelling. The matter-of-fact revelations of the author ambush you - every now and then I found myself summing up and experiencing the aweful reality of understanding that the lives of countless Palestinians have been blighted unnecessarily for generations, since they were forced into two small patches of their former lands in 1948.

It is only by chance that the author's family decided to go to the Gaza Strip rather than the West Bank on the basis that they knew people on the Strip. The outcome for the family was almost certainly worse for that decision.
In spite of the enormous deprivations, abject poverty, horrendous mal-treatments and the most dreadful and violent losses of his closest family, Dr Abuelaish continues to reframe his experiences to maintain his sanity, to be free from anger and to seek a way to peace through medicine. He is an example of human greatness at its purest best.

This book is a gift of humanity in a world of ignorant, angry and selfish people who traumatize us and destroy our planet because of their own lack of humanity - the simple ability to see other people, including our enemies as redeemable and deserving a safe envrionment in which to flourish.
