A must read for professional coaches, internal coaches, or anyone entering this emerging profession." Katherine Tulpa, Chair and Co-founder Association for Coaching "The best coaching starter kit I have come across to date." Sir John Whitmore, Executive Chairman of Performance Consultants International "Written by highly experienced coaches, this book gives the reader valuable insights in a straightforward and practical fashion. If only more coaching texts were as useful, unpretentious and jargon-free!" Dr Anthony Grant PhD, Director, Coaching Psychology Unit, University of Sydney, Australia "Carol Wilson has managed to capture much of the best of good practice in this excellent primer on coaching... The book's value is enhanced by case studies illustrating a variety of coaching approaches and by just enough detail on relevant techniques to whet the interest of the beginner coach and hint at the long but fascinating learning journey ahead of them." Professor David Clutterbuck, Co-founder of the European Mentoring & Coaching Council, visiting professor at Sheffield Hallam University, UK, and co-author of Mentoring in Action, also published by Kogan Page "Anyone who knows Carol knows she is a class act and this book will certainly re-enforce that opinion. ...This is a 'must read book' for those who prefer commonsense to the often rather pretentious over academic psychobabble that mark too many new contributions to the coaching professional literature." Eric Parsloe, OTLG/Oxford School of Coaching and Mentoring "I predict that it [the book] will quickly establish itself as a must-read." www.personneltoday.com "Complete with worksheets and exercise, evaluations and international case studies this is a thorough guide to performance coaching.
