About the book

The Coach's Coach combines the vast experience of the author with that of three successful sports people: Mike Brearley, Adrian Moorhouse, and Brendan Venter. Between them they set out the tools and techniques available to coaches with solid, practical, experience-based advice on how and when to use them. They look at team coaching, executive mentoring, the role of the manager as coach and the tools and techniques that you need to ensure your success. They also advise on what is required from both the coach and coachee to make the process work.

Whether you are an experienced coach or just starting out, a specialist consultant or a coaching manager, this book will help you to become better and to enjoy it more. And ultimately, it will help you to help the people you are coaching to improve their performance and achieve the results they set out to achieve. Structured in clear, easy-to-navigate chapters that allow you to hone in on material as required, The Coach's Coach provides all the information you need to help you develop and improve your skill set.
