How Coaching Works
Author: Joseph O'Connor, Andrea Lages
Publisher: A&C Black
Coaching is very big business. Over the last decade it has become one of the most popular approaches to personal and business development. Coaching books tend to focus on just one method, and just one of five main areas: Executive coaching (for senior business people); Business coaching (for companies to improve results); Life coaching (for people who want a better sense of fulfilment and wellbeing); Sports coaching (for individual athletes); Team coaching (for teams in sport or business) Pragmatic and informative, How Coaching Works is the first to explain the key concepts that underpin all of these different areas. It also explores how different ideas have blended to give rise to what we know as 'coaching' today, and singles out what works. The authors are two of the world's leading experts in this field. In How Coaching Works they have created a must-have book for practising coaches, students and anyone interested in the subject.

What is there in developmental relationships beyond setting and striving to achieve goals? The presence of goals in coaching and mentoring programs has gone largely unquestioned, yet evidence is growing that the standard prescription of SMART, challenging goals is not always appropriate - and even potentially dangerous - in the context of a complex and rapidly changing world. Beyond Goals advances standard goal-setting theory by bringing together cutting-edge perspectives from leaders in coaching and mentoring. From psychology to neuroscience, from chaos theory to social network theory, the contributors offer diverse and compelling insights into both the advantages and limitations of goal pursuit. The result is a more nuanced understanding of goals, with the possibility for practitioners to bring greater impact and sophistication to their client engagements. The implications of this reassessment are substantial for all those practicing as coaches and mentors, or managing coaching or mentoring initiatives in organizations.
