Coaching is a way of managing, a way of treating people, a way of thinking, a way of being. Coaching has matured into an invaluable profession fit for our times and this fourth edition of the most widely read coaching book takes it to the next frontier.
Good coaching is a skill that requires a depth of understanding and plenty of practice if it is to deliver its astonishing potential. This extensively revised and expanded new audio edition of Coaching for Performance clearly explains the principles of coaching and illustrates them with examples of high performance from business and sport. It continues to follow the GROW sequence (Goals, Reality, Options, Will) and clarifies the process and practice of coaching by describing what coaching really is, what it can be used for, when and how much it can be used, and who can use it well.

"A must hear for any coach aspiring to do advanced work with their clients. Bringing together the simplicity of the coaching process and the larger scope of the coaching profession in an understandable and provocative way." (Laura Whitworth, co-founder of The coaches Training Institute and author of Co-Active Coaching)
Interesting to have an overview on coaching. The format of the book is more suitable for reading than for listening. There were bullet points, or lists that despite the narrator's talent were difficult to follow.
The content is fantastic - I began applying concepts immediately. Unfortunately, this narrator has ruined several books in my collection with his boring delivery and smug enunciation.
Very monotonous and painful to listen to. Excellent content, however. I've already begun incorporating techniques into my management. Thank you
"Great book, narration needs a do over"
This is easily one of the best coaching books on the market - for me its the coaching bible. I like to maximize my time and listen to a lot of audiobooks whilst tending to household chores and when commuting. I have the paper copy but wanted an audiobook for repetitive learning benefits whilst mobile but I found this audiobook seriously difficult to keep up with due to the narration style - too fast for me to digest. I would even go as far to say I found it exhausting at times. Perhaps it would be okay if when listening to it in a deeply focused manner.If I was rating the book it would get 5. If I was rating the narration, for me, a 1.
"Brilliant a must"
A must for coaches. John Whitmore is clear concise and gives relevant supporting views and models for his view of coaching as it develops from its past to future form.
"ive goven up on it"
Terrible narration, i did not manage to finish it as it was too boring. the material seems dated and too obvious.
