The Five-Minute Coach is an excellent introduction to the principles and use of Clean Language. I have been coaching for many years and have known a little about Clean Language, but not enough to feel confident to use it. This book has been immediately useful to me because Chapter 1 gets stuck straight away into a step by step -˜how to' guide, which is perfect for a Clean Language beginner like me. Even better than this, it really does only take 5 minutes to prepare to use the process and then 5 minutes to actually -˜do the coaching'. It's not often that you can read a book and get started on the techniques when you're only half way through Chapter 1, but this is refreshingly the case with The Five-Minute Coach. The rest of the book expands upon the coaching skills and personal attributes of the coach that will add depth and power to the technique itself, with stories and case studies along the way to support the authors' findings and thoughts. I can't wait to receive my copy of this book as I will definitely be recommending it to all those I work with to develop and enhance their coaching skills.
