Review

In this Fifth Edition of Coaching for Performance, Sir John Whitmore and Performance Consultants shine a light on what it takes to create high performance and unpick the myths around coaching. (John McFarlane, Chairman, Barclays PLC, Chairman, TheCityUK)

Coaching cultures are better performing, fairer, and more sustainable than those arising out of traditional management systems. Coaching for Performance is for any leader aiming for excellence. (Ludo Van der Heyden, Professor of Corporate Governance, INSEAD)

Coaching for Performance directly impacts the way of working in our companies. It provides coaches and leaders with a fantastic tool for people development that is so powerful. (Jean-Louis Araignous, Coaching Program Manager, Volvo Group University)

Coaching for Performance was our reference manual when we introduced coaching as part of our leadership development activities in the European Commission. It helped us to understand the benefits of coaching, provided a sound base in our initial selection of external coaches and, later, a benchmark for the development of our own internal coaching team.
Some years on, the Commission benefits from a strong coaching culture, with Sir John's work as the main reference point. This book is a must-read for managers and OD practitioners alike.

(Norman Jardine, Head of Internal Communication, European Commission, DG Human Resources and Security)

This new edition is a testament to Sir John Whitmore's commitment to real change in people's lives and will bring value to all industry leaders. (Tim Gallwey, author of the internationally bestselling series of 'Inner Game' books)

The best first book to read for leaders as well as new or experienced coaches. It goes beyond the skills that it so aptly spells out, to explain the essence of coaching. (Carol Kauffman PhD, Assistant Professor, Harvard Medical School)

This book is a must-read for leaders and organizational development practitioners who recognize that coaching is a performance activity which impacts leaders, teams, and culture holistically. (Thorsten Klein, Director, Global Talent & Organization Development, eBay)

Coaching for Performance is the proven resource for all coaches and pioneers of the future of coaching. (Magdalena N. Mook, Executive Director and CEO, International Coach Federation)

A must read for any coach aspiring to do advanced work with their clients. Bringing together the simplicity of the coaching process and the larger scope of the coaching profession in a readable and provocative way, Coaching for Performance forecasts the necessary evolution that awaits the world of business and the world of coaching. (Laura Whitworth, co-founder of The Coaches Training Institute and author of Co-Active Coaching)

Whitmore has ensured that the book will remain the leading text in its field. The layout makes reading the book pleasurable and greatly assists in appreciating its content. The book falls into four sections. The first introduces the principles of coaching and shows it as a way of managing, an attitude of mind rather than a tool to effect a one-off change. The second section and core of the book deals with the practices of coaching. The approach taken is wide-ranging and usefully includes team coaching. Ideas drawn from management development are interwoven with coaching methodologies drawn from the social sciences. The third section is devoted to leadership for high performance. Leadership in the world today calls for pride of place in a book on management coaching. Whitmore achieves in a few pages what full works on leadership often fail to reach - an understanding of the subject and sound advice on sowing the seeds to develop the skills to lead others. The final section looks at emotional intelligence (EI) and the tools of transformational psychology. Fortunately Whitmore, a qualified psychologist, is thoroughly grounded and relates the coaching process without peeling off into mysticism or spiritualism. If you read an earlier edition then little persuasion will be required to read this edition to bring you up to the cutting edge of coaching (Professional Manager)

Book Description
