Powerful and Precise

I loved this book because it provided very clear insight on coaching from start up to being effective and successful. I loved the real examples and role play done to paint the picture of what the “I CAN DO” model sounds like. Even though I’ve gone through life coaching certification and worked with a mentor, this book is a tool that makes me feel so much more prepared correctly coaching others and broadening my marketing to gain clients in the corporate sector as well.

Very Hood and Practical Applications For Immediate Use

Enjoyed the audio book thoroughly. It helped me to have knowledge of a general structure for all clients. Just when I thought that my natural skills were enough.

This gives me more confidence to combine both my natural skills and a sense of structure in order to give the most value to clients. I love that I can relisten to this as well...and I have already. Thank you for this help.

The title is spot on!

If you are considering becoming a life coach this is an invaluable guide. Presented primarily for a British audience, the bulk of the information can be used in the US. I will be using this audio book as a manual while pursuing my studies in this area and after I receive my certification.

literally a ton of info condensed into a short

literally a ton of info condensed into a short easy listen. I love all the examples, though I do wish it went further in depth on some things. but over a great book to get a quick look into becoming a life coach.

Surprising good

I’ve listened to a few coaching books and found them quite repetitive. I found some good little nuggets in this book. Really good tips especially identifying the type of clients and how this affects how you should coach them.
