I'd recommend this book to anyone who is looking to be a coach or who is currently a coach. I liked that the authors provided concrete questions coaches should ask their clients to get them to their own conclusions. These were helpful for me in making sure that I asked the same questions of myself. I would've liked to have received a link to a page that has all of these questions listed on them under the corresponding heading. The performer started off slow and dry but his delivery improved (or I got used to it) as the book progressed.
Book with a lot of good material can sometime be a challenge for me to ready. I find it easy when reading (rather then listening) to get lost in thought about the ramifications and ideas of the many ideas. The audio version helps me keep forging ahead.
There are a lot of great ideas here - especially in how to 'stack' the questions in an order that helps lead rather then pull the client forward. This book does a good job of that. But now I am looking for the reference version, and feel I need the printed book or a reference site.
I have already recommended this to others. Especially those in consulting positions (although coaching and consulting are different, this book helps clarify where there are unique, and where they overlap).
I question your thoughts on that.
