Product reviews for Performance Coaching

Julian and Michaela Gill, Aspire Therapy
I found this a really useful and practical book. It is well set out with a good structure ” easy to find what you want. There are practical tips and case studies, useful anecdotes and extracts from actual coaching interactions / conversations which help to illustrate or support the author's points.

The book explores the whole gamut of the coaching process, including a detailed look at communication issues between coach and coachee, beliefs and internal dialogue, motivation and change. It also examines various coaching models and outlines specific tools and interventions for use with clients.

McCleod suggests a framework for working with clients which includes advice on initial contracting and expectations, preparation for sessions, ending sessions and setting “homework' outside sessions. He provides practical advice on establishing coaching contracts, doing freelance and corporate coaching, group coaching and even coaching pitfalls and how to avoid them.

In addition, the book also focuses on the development of the coach themselves, with sections on mindsets for the coach, self- coaching and finding inspiration.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone involved in either Life coaching or corporate coaching.
