Whether you are a newbie or experienced coach, or someone interested to learn about coaching or someone interested to be coached or someone seeking to be trained as a coach, this book will reframe the coaching world for you, starting with the detail of 20 general principles of coaching and in its clear overview of 37 areas of coaching. This book also highlights 10 major coaching approaches and 8 minor / niche coaching approaches, and takes a liberty to confront what coaching is not by highlighting 8 non-coach approaches.
Compacted into 406 pages, the chapters have been carefully arranged for easy reference and repeated readings. Just like how coaching can be confronting when pushing one’s boundaries, neither does this book stop at providing mere technicalities!
