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.

This is an excellent book with quality material presented. I highly reccomend this book for anyone looking to broaden their coaching techniques or reinforce some habits and tatics not recently reviewed.

However the readers voice did not resonate well with me and the way he ends sentences kinds of irritates me and decreases my focus. I will personally buy this book do avoid this setback and try to get the most from the material.

This expanded edition includes dozens of practical tips and case studies from readers who have doubled their income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book. Also included are templates for eliminating email and negotiating with bosses and clients, how to apply lifestyle principles in unpredictable economic times, and the latest tools, tricks, and shortcuts for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either.

I am amazed how many poor reviews are out there about this book. I will agree the title is a bit desceptive but the information and resources in this book are well worth the small investment. If I were to say this book did one thing for me, it was to open my mind to posibilities that I had never thought of in both business and travel. The creativity the book sparked was invaluable.

In my personal opinion this book was one of the best books I have ever 'read'. I both feel inspired at it close but also highly entertained. Dan Harris did a great job with the reading and added much color through his very rich vocabulary. I highly recommended it!
