The essence and success of The Tao of Coaching has always been its focus on the practical tips and techniques for making work more rewarding through the habit of coaching – and this philosophy continues to underpin this brand new reissue.
The book's premise is simple: that to become an effective coach, managers and leaders need master only a few techniques, even though mastery obviously requires practice. Each chapter focuses on a specific technique – or Golden Rule – of coaching to help practice make perfect.
Tried and tested by generations within and beyond the workplace, this succinct and engaging book gives readers the tools to:
– create more time for themselves, by delegating well
– build, and enjoy working with, effective teams
– achieve better results
– enhance their interpersonal skills.
It demonstrates that coaching is not simply a matter of helping others and improving performance, but is also a powerful force for self-development and personal fulfilment.
