5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent
This is the first book that I have found that seems to pull together the key tools available for good coaching. Rather than being attached to a particular brand or approach, the authors seem to draw on a wide range of different sources including business psychology, reasearch and NLP, making it a very rich and useful resource.

A handy reference book, it is...

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, but could be improved.
There is some great information and ideas about how to organize your coaching practice. The interventions seem to borrow significanty from NLP. My biggest issue is that the most important documents are not available as downloadable files (this was a major selling point and one of the primary reasons I bought the book), while others which are pretty simple to replicate,...

This review is from: 50 Top Tools for Coaching: A Complete Toolkit for Developing and Empowering People (Paperback)
There is some great information and ideas about how to organize your coaching practice. The interventions seem to borrow significanty from NLP. My biggest issue is that the most important documents are not available as downloadable files (this was a major selling point and one of the primary reasons I bought the book), while others which are pretty simple to replicate, are provided. I am not sure how the authors decided which to distribute and which to leave in print form. In addition, two of the downloads were not available. Hopefully this is a temporary glitch on the Kogan website...

Overall, a decent effort and I am getting some value for money. I can not give it 5 stars as there is reasonable room for improvement. I found the Coach U Coach U's Essential Coaching Tools: Your Complete Practice Resource resources much more helpful in developing my own tools and the newly published How to Coach with NLP more explicit in its NLP focus.

A handy reference book, it is well structured, easy to follow and written in language that allows ease of use both for coaches and anyone who wants to be able to access a coaching approach.

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Top coaching book, 2 Dec. 2009

This review is from: 50 Top Tools for Coaching: A Complete Toolkit for Developing and Empowering People (Paperback)
Excellent practical guide to key aspects of the coaching process. Organised into logical sections, with the first few covering the basics of coaching, such as setting up the coaching relationship and foundation tools. Later chapters cover popular coaching topics, including confidence, working effectively with others and problem resolution. Full instructions are given for each tool, and all relevant diagrams, templates etc. are given in full. I particularly like the clear language and structured approach which make this book easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for new and experienced coaches, 16 Sept. 2013
This review is from: 50 Top Tools for Coaching: A Complete Toolkit for Developing and Empowering People (Paperback)
This book is a clearly laid out set of tools which cover a whole variety of coaching situations. I found the section at the front on listening and questioning and the base ORACLE model a really useful foundation for coaching skills and it was great to be able to dip into the tools as and when necessary. Great for new coaches with some useful advanced tools for more experienced coaches.

Great tips in a easy to use format. Perfect for dipping in and out of for a refresher but also detailed enough to learn new techniques.
