Praise for Executive Coaching with Backbone and Heart

"In this book, O'Neill brings form and structure to the art of executive coaching. Novices are provided a path while seasoned practitioners will find affirmation." -Daryl R. Conner, CEO and president, ODR-USA, Inc.

"O'Neill writes in a way that allows you to see this experienced coach in action. What a wonderful way to learn!" -Geoff Bellman, consultant and author, The Consultant's Calling

"Mary Beth brings a keen business focus to coaching by not just contributing insights but through helping me and my team gain the insights that we need to solve our own problems.

    "Great Learnings; Try Before you Buy"

    The book itself is good, and in my learning process with respect to executive coaching I found the content valuable. Just be warned - There are a fair number of diagrams as she explains systems however and it's more effective to look at these on a page that it is listen to someone describe them.

    One should listen for a bit to the narrators voice before purchasing. It is very distinct (deep/gravelly) and not for everyone; if this bothers you, you may be better off purchasing and reading the book.

    "Poor presentation"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It required a much better presentation


    What was most disappointing about Mary Beth A. O' Neill’s story?

    I kept thinking I was listening to an automated voice it was so poor, and stilted


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Vanessa Hart?

    Not sure


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Executive Coaching with Backbone and Heart?

    The narration was so bad, I just got past the intro/preface section, I was hopping that the narrator in the intro section was not the same as the rest of the book but it was and I just could not focus on the content


    Any additional comments?

    From the Amazon comments it appears that the written book is good, which was why I bought the audio. Very disappointed - just want my money back.

    "Super helpful"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book was truly valuable. I didn't have the time to sit down and read it, but this audio version kept me engaged while on the go. It's useful for anyway that wants to address important topics with clarity, heart and respect. The narrator was easy to listen to.
