Arm yourself with these tried and tested tools and techniques to provide the best experience for your clients in every coaching situation.
A complete resource for both in-house and external coaches, 50 Top Tools for Coaching presents the techniques required to face every coaching situation. Full of templates, checklists, hints and tips, it covers how to assess the needs of clients, select the right tool for the circumstance and deliver effective coaching with confidence. The book reflects on all key areas from the start of an assignment to its finish, including: setting up and managing the coaching relationship; understanding and resolving conflict; increasing client confidence; enhancing client performance; communicating and influencing; and developing a leadership style. It offers examples throughout on how the tools have helped coaches be more successful.
This fully revised 4th edition of 50 Top Tools for Coaching includes the latest on topical issues such as coaching women into leadership roles and coaching for change in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world. Brand new tools help coach and motivate in a digital world, in times of change and with very little budget. Online supporting resources include additional tools, interactive templates, reference tables and web links to help put the tools into practice.
This is one of the few books I keep returning to. Whether you are a new coach or an experienced coach there are always things that you can learn or remind yourself of how to do better. Gillian and Ro have a wonderful knack of explaining what to do in a very practical way as well as sharing the benefits of doing so both for yourself and for the client. A great handbook for every coach's bookshelf!
Alex Szabo, COO, Association for Coaching (about a previous edition)
I love the fact that I can either dip in to find a suitable tool for a given coaching scenario OR have the option to create a whole coaching process.
Carolyn Trafford, Reflections Coaching (about a previous edition)
It's great to get different perspectives on coaching. Very often we get stuck in a groove with our clients, so having 50 different ways to shift our thinking can transform situations.
