Our strengths can become our weaknesses. Our traits and habitual behaviours can become traps. In each chapter of The Coach’s Casebook the reader follows a skilled coach working with a client who is struggling with one of the twelve traits which every coach will face in their coaching work – traits such as people pleasing, perfectionism, impostor syndrome, performance anxiety and procrastination. The coach shares their emotions, their thought processes and their reflections as they try to understand the psychological origins of these behaviours and to work out how to help their client.
This book is a great book for leader development and has been used extensively for executive leadership for results but is above all designed to help you in your work as a coach. It gives you practical, tried and tested techniques which you can use today to improve your coaching habits and coaching practice to help your clients to change the habits of a lifetime.
“Reading this book is like being a coach, a client, a supervisor, a student of coaching, and in relationship with all of those people all at once! It also achieves that remarkable thing, and rare, of being both friendly and rigorous, gentle and challenging, calm and pacey.
