Its too basic, starting assuming no understanding of employee engagement etc. Some of it talks about HR 101 rather than coaching.
I'm listening to Lyn's book of 7 secrets of coaching success.
Lyn is not the best narrator, and that's OK as I wouldn't expect authors be the best on vocals. Its quite a different profession. I would recommend Lyn arrange for someone with good narrating reviews (female) to do the narration. If Lyn you still wish to narrate, please just slow down and pause momentarily between ideas, paragraphs and when emphasising something. That alone will really enhance the interest of the reader and lead them more at crucial times.
Too much HR 101 and engagement stuff at the beginning. I was looking for more on the process of coaching, not environmental factors. The section on 7 ways to sabotage oneself was a really good chapter. I found it useful and made my $5 purchase worthwhile. If more of the book had similar deep and substantive process, this book would have been rated highly. Clearly Lyn can turn it on when she wants, so hopefully future books I will read of Lyn's will do this.
I'm amazed the only other reviewer of this book has given 5 stars not only to this, but to 5 other books of Lyn which constitutes 60% of all their reviews. Clearly my learning style is very different to this amazing reviewer.
I can't believe that in just a few hours I felt confident I could do Corporate and Business Coaching and Consulting!
The best part about the book was the chapter on "How to Get Your Foot In the Door." It gave me a step-by-step method of getting businesses to hire me.
I now know what corporations and businesses want and need in a coach/consultant and I feel ready to be of service.
This book was exactly what I needed to get started on my goal of business consulting. The author explains it in an easy-to-follow way, and is actually a great role model on how to coach people in business.
"Really? Impossible to take seriously"
I'm sending back this book and asking for a refund because it is dreadful. If you know absolutely nothing about coaching then do yourself a favour and find another book. And if you know if know anything at all about coaching then you probably already know more than the author of this book. To add insult to injury the tone is patronising.
