- It's a paradox of coaching that great coaches have a large toolkit -- but use them sparingly. Before you can let go of reliance on tools and techniques, you must first have the abundance that gives confidence they are there, if you ever need them. This volume helps the coach on that journey.
- Professor David Clutterbuck
