It's a good overview of executive coaching but I'm not sure that it gives as much insight into the psychological dimensions as the title suggests

This review is from: Psychological Dimensions of Executive Coaching (Coaching in Practice) (Paperback)
This book by Peter Bluckert gets into the whats, hows and whys of executive coaching. Rather than simply provide recommended techniques as many coaching texts do, Bluckert goes into a little more of the psychology of how and why those techniques are effective. Bluckert explains and contrasts the elements of different psychological frameworks (Gestalt, psychodynamic, person - centred and cognitive - behavioural) and he provides some useful analysis of how client's presenting challenges may only be symptoms of a more deep seated issue, which is where the coach can really add value. The coach identifies a complete picture by maintaining a state of 'interested curiosity', whilst remaining detached from the coachee's emotional responses. Bluckert provides numerous references to research, which provides a degree of academic rigour, somewhat lacking in some competing texts. The book addresses the importance of maintaining a state of 'awareness' on the parts of both the coach and coachee, avoiding the temptation to rush to a solution for the presenting problem and of understanding the coachee's wider perspective - the context in which the coachee is judging his / her experiences. I found this to be an interesting read - a good balance which provides a readable, practical working text, whilst providing a good grounding of academic research and psychological analysis.

This review is from: Psychological Dimensions of Executive Coaching (Coaching in Practice) (Paperback)
I found this book easy to read, not over complex. It is systmeatic in taking you through each element of the contents and doesn't get lost on the way. It gives thought provoking material and challenges things that are already out there. The psychological dimensions are well covered without being too complicated.
