A Must Read for Emerging Coaches - Joy Oliver


As an HR practitioner, I coach leaders on various HR matters as part of the role. I have been considering becoming an executive coach in a more formal way. This book provided great insights on the coaching approach I could use. I learned the methodology and process the author uses, and I got a good sense of what becoming an executive coach would be like. I liked that the characters were so real and vivid...we have all worked with leaders like them! There were some passages that were touching, they exposed the human and interpersonal element of coaching. I highly recommend this book for those interested in learning more about the art of success as an executive coach. It is a quick and easy read.

Unlocking Leadership Potential - Marian Howley


I thought this was a great book as it combined the art and science of executive coaching.
The author demonstrates her expertise as a psychologist and business leader when working with clients. The examples of the cases were very valuable as to how to unlock an individuals peak performance

Very Informative & Helpful - Kevin N.


I have often wondered what it would be like to be an executive coach. This book shows that it is not as easy as it sounds, but the author also does take the reader through the steps of coaching and her clear methodology comes through. I did find this book to be a great primer for somebody like me, a manager who could one day be an executive coach. And it raises the whole issue of what it takes to be a great executive...the leaders in this book have tough jobs. I particularly enjoyed the chapter about the leader who is an introvert, and it made me think about somebody on my team and the chapter offered good insights.

Straight to the point and easy to understand - Charles cao


Although I am not an executive coach, I coach my team and colleagues at work. I found this book to be interesting because it explains the structure and benefits of executive coaching, and the characters are like many I encounter at work. I don't know if I will ever be an executive coach per se, but this book helped me think through what that would entail. Plus I like the unusual way this business book was written. It's informal and a quick read, but it also made me think about peoples' personalities at work and different corporate cultures.
