'This book is a milestone in the coaching literature. Elaine Cox provides an excellent text that is scholarly, practical and accessible. She offers clear insights into how coaching works so that coaching is truly understood!' - Bob Garvey, Professor of Business Education, York St John Business School 'The development of the coaching literature has often been protracted and modest. In recent years, few coaching texts provided a significant leap forward in our understanding of psychological dynamics of coaching. For this reason, Cox’s Coaching Understood is a game changer. More thoroughly and systematically than ever before, this work gets under the bonnet of the coaching engine and explores the mechanics of the coaching process. For anyone wondering why coaching works, this book is your answer.' - Yossi Ives, Tag International Development, UK (International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching Mentoring) Coaching Understood takes a fresh approach to coaching skills and techniques by examining each element of the coaching process in detail in order to verify and justify its effectiveness. By exposing the mystery underlying coaching's success as a personal and professional development intervention, Elaine Cox undertakes to generate a better understanding of coaching, improve coaching practice, and breed a new generation of more informed coachees and buyers of coaching. Coaching Understood is essential reading for students and practitioners alike. Electronic Inspection Copy available for instructors here

Michael Parr, CEO, British Arab Commercial Bank It's a tough job being a manager. How do you manage performance? If you come across as too directive you may get a reputation for harshness. If you are too nice you risk being known as a gullible and easily outmanoeuvred. Neither approach works.

Coaching is the most reliable a way of producing it. In Manager as Coach, Jenny Rogers challenges many of the traditional assumptions about what works in management and shows you, step by step, how to be a brilliant manager and get fantastic results: Reduce your stress Develop employees' key skills Create a culture of engagement Improve bottom line results Jenny Rogers is one of the leading executive coaches in the UK with more than 20 years of experience.

Appreciative Coaching describes an approach to coaching that is rooted in Appreciative Inquiry. At its core the Appreciative Coaching method shows individuals how to tap into (or rediscover) their own sense of wonder and excitement about their present life and future possibilities. Rather than focusing on individuals in limited or problem-oriented ways, Appreciate Coaching guides clients through four stages—Discovery, Dream, Design, and Destiny—that inspire them to an appreciative and empowering view of themselves and their future.

Presence-Based Coaching offers coaches a hands-on resource for developing the capacities and skills needed to be reliably present in all situations, and shows how to let go of habitual—and often ineffective—ways of responding. As author and leadership expert Doug Silsbee explains, once a coach has mastered the inner moves of directing their own attention, they can work to develop the same capability in their clients. The ability of a coach to facilitate lasting, sustainable development in leaders rests on the presence a coach offers to the coach-client relationship.

It provides an overview of existing leadership theories, and their limitations, as well as introducing the brave coaching approach and the elements that comprise the model. The book includes practical case studies that provide insights into the range of applications for the brave leadership coaching framework. Based on academic research, and written in an accessible scholarly style, this book shows how coaching can assist in decision making, leading to a different, braver form of personal and corporate leadership. It should be of interest to students of management, leadership, coaching and mentoring, as well as professional coaches and leaders.
