Product Description

Review

"There are some books that really make a contribution to the body of knowledge of the subject. This book is one of those. It is objective and research based while also drawing on the experiences of the author and others in such a way that is not boringly academic at all. It grabs ones interest and holds it with very clear readable language. Sir John Whitmore, author of Coaching for Performance [originator of the GROW model]"

Format: Paperback
This is a clearly written and very thorough guide to coaching, but with a potential translation of the techniques to all sorts of leadership situations. But it's the model that's so useful; not limiting the discussion to the usual GROW model (Goal definition, reality check, options and What next), but expanding it.

The ACHIEVE model helps people to get to a clear understanding of what they want to do with their lives - and eschews

the idea that what presents itself first is in fact what you should go for.

ACHIEVE stands for Assessing the current situation (to help you identify the things which are really holding you back - not just what first presents itself as "the issue "); Creative brainstorming of alternatives (helping you get out of the "stuck" state); Honing goals (giving priority to the

things you want to tackle); Initiating options (helping you identify what behaviour will help you to get to your goal); Evaluating options (deciding which action to take); Valid action plan design (a clear plan with measurable steps) and finally, Encouraging momentum (keeping you on track) .

The book is chock-full of really helpful case studies to show not only coaches what can be achieved (no pun intended) and coachees that it's about THEM - not just their work. The case studies also demonstrate that this book has been written by, and for, practitioners - no theoretical wanderings here, although many of theories that underline the practical tools have their basis in sound academic theory from a variety of disciplines such as NLP, Gestalt, Goal theory, creativity and psychology.

A great, highly readable book."

"This is the single best outline of a structured approach to coaching that I have come across. Not only developing the GROW model into something more comprehensive, this work also outlines the capabilities and skills required of coaching allowing some self evaluation and increased self awareness too for the coach. This is a 'must read' book for coaches and managers wanting to adopt a coaching approach to management."

HASH(0x97a23630) out of 5 stars The book is very refreshing for someone who has done coaching. It covers many aspects to create a dynamic experience. 18 Jun. 2013
By Renee Pitts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a professional coach for over 18 years this book served as a great refresher and reminder of tools and techniqes that create the total experience that benefits both the client and the coach.

It provides step by step practices and exercises that work.

The book was simplistic and easy to read.

I would highly recommend to those who need the refresher or trying to decide if this is for them. It does require some previous knowledge and experience in coaching to truly understand the concept and follow it through professionally.
