“This book covers coaching models and competencies that are extremely important to our learning and practice as a professional coach. The straightforward format allows for application, reflection and further learning whatever our experience. Organizations are more often encouraging a ‘coach approach’ and teaching coaching skills to managers and leaders to create a coaching culture. This does not mean it is a soft approach but rather emphasizes the importance of listening and or open, honest, clear and direct communication.”
